Travelling to Belum by train can be the most adventurous way to get to the state park. However, the trains will only reach  the Ipoh train station. Therefore, you will need to get  a bus ride from the Ipoh bus station to Pulau Banding. Another alternative is to take the train to Kuala Kangsar (a few more stops after Ipoh train station) and take a bus from there. Since the busses do not depart on frequent timetable, please make arrangements to the journey early.
