Penang International Airport (PEN) is located at Bayan Lepas in the south of the island. The airport serves as the northern gateway to Malaysia and is the secondary hub of Firefly, a low-cost carrier wholly owned by Malaysia Airlines as well as AirAsia, a pioneer low-cost carrier from Malaysia. Other airlines operating at Penang are national flag carrier Malaysia Airlines, SilkAir (a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines), Thai Airways International, Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia Airways, Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific and Dragon Air, Taiwan-based China Airlines, China Southern Airlines, together with Indonesian airlines Lion Air, Kartika Airlines, Sriwijaya Air and Wings Air.

The airport also serves as an important cargo hub due to the large presence of multinational factories in the Free Trade Zones as well as catering to the northern states of peninsular Malaysia.
Head for the Karak Highway that leads towards Genting Highlands and follow route 2 all the way through Mentakab, Temerloh and Maran. Route 2 will take you all the way to Kuantan but you will have take a detour to the right into route 12. Travel straight down this road until you come across a sign to turn right into Tasik Chini. This will lead you through a monotonous landscape of palm oil plantations. At a junction, there will be a sign leading you to Tasik Chini and the resorts. Turn right into this road. About 3km down the road there is another right turning. The Kijang Mas Gumum Resort signage on this right turn will lead you to Kampung Gumum where all running resorts are situated. For Tasik Chini Resort, follow the road straight in for another 2.5km instead of turning right to Kampung Gumum
As all buses stop at the Felda Chini bus station, you will have to hitch a ride or catch a taxi to the resort, which is some 13km away passing by a palm oil factory and a lot of trash strewn all over. It's not the best to even try walking all the way to the resort - the scenery is appalling here and the air is pretty stuffy. So the best way is to call Mr.Yusuf at H/P: 010-9897 435 or house no. (6)09-422 1435 prior to your arrival and he will pick you up from the bus station. The taxi fare will cost RM20 per taxi per way. When leaving Tasik Chini, one of the staff will drop you off at the bus station.
