1. How do I get to The Sticks? If you’re driving from KL, just key in ‘The Sticks’ into any navigation app and you’ll be able to find your way here.If you’re travelling from out of the country, the best way would be to fly in to KLIA and catch an Uber or Grab car from there (cheaper than any transfer we can arrange for you). For the return trip to KLIA, we can help to book a ride with a trusted driver. Without traffic, the car journey to or from the airport takes less than 2 hours.Alternatively, if you're up for some adventure (and a cheaper transit from the airport), you can catch the KLIA express from the airport to KL Sentral. From there, get on a commuter KTM train to the Kuala Kubu Bharu (KKB) KTM station. You'll be able to find the train schedule for this particular route on Google Maps. Once you arrive at the KKB KTM station, you can get a taxi up to The Sticks which usually costs about RM35 and will take about 30 minutes.
