The West Coast Expressway (WCE) beckons like a modern marvel, promising a swifter route north. Gone are the days of monotonous highway stretches.

Northbound to Nirvana (Taiping)

Imagine blasting off from the Rawang Selatan Toll Plaza, not in a spaceship, but in your trusty vehicle. While hyperspace travel might lack bathroom breaks, the LATAR Expressway offers hidden rest stops , perhaps even a secret waterfall awaits discovery (well, maybe a cool cafe is a more realistic possibility).

Embrace your inner pioneer! The WCE beckons as a partially built highway, a chance to be among the first to conquer its twists and turns. Think Autobahn, minus the speed demons, but with a dash of construction to keep you on your toes. Double-check those navigation apps, they might be slower than a vacationing sloth sometimes.

You've done it! A pat on the back (or high five your copilot) is well deserved. You've navigated the wonders (and maybe some unexpected detours) of the WCE. Now, Taiping awaits with its historical charm, delicious local cuisine, and pristine beaches. This is your victory lap, champion!

Westward Bound to Wonderland (Penang)

Welcome to the  toll-free Section 11!  This is your golden ticket to whoosh past  traffic and shave off precious travel time  until May 11th, 2024.   Those extra minutes can be strategically used to plan your Penang food itinerary –  research is key to maximizing your culinary adventure.  Remember, tolls will likely apply to this section after the promotional period ends.  While the exact cost is unknown, you can expect to pay around  RM 0.16 per kilometer based on rates for other operational sections.

Congratulations, intrepid traveler! The WCE is conquered, and you've arrived in the glorious food haven of Penang. Prepare to embark on a culinary odyssey filled with char kway teow, asam laksa, and a dazzling array of exotic delights guaranteed to tantalize your taste buds.
