If we were to fly into KL,

What is the best route to take from here, on a fairly limited time line. Thinking a train north via cameron highlands etc?

My concern is, what will we miss, and is penang the only option of flight back?

Id like to hit bali and borneo (kota kin) too.

I cant see a viable way to travel part of west Malaysia, then fly onto / between the other two without having to constantly fly back / via KL

You could fly into Kuala Lumpur, travel overland to Penang - stopping at Cameron Highlands should you wish to do so, fly from Penang to Kota Kinabalu, then fly from Kota Kinabalu to Bali and finally Bali back to wherever you came from.

Please note there is no railway track to Cameron Highlands, so you can't take the train there.

The train does not go anywhere near to the Cameron Highlands. The nearest stop is Ipoh.

You can fly from Penang to Kota Kinabalu (which is what I assume you mean) and then you can fly to Bali.

suggestions? Air Asia!

Personally I would just head to Kota Kinabalu and not worry about the Cameron Highlands, it is not with that much effort.
