Travel to Tioman Island, Malaysia

One of the best holiday ever! Tioman is beautiful.

We stayed at Berjaya Hotel for 4D3N. Staying there gave us the relaxation we needed after a stressful job in the City. The buffet breakfast is just fantastic! There are a lot of different resorts can choose which suits your vacation best.

The part that you really wouldn't know what to do or where to go unless you google it, is visiting "Juara Beach"! You have to go there for the sunset and be blown away with its sheer beauty.

Going to Juara Beach means crossing the mountain as it is on the opposite side if you're coming from Berjaya Resort. And that means, waking up at 4:30AM to get there just in time for the Sunrise.

Getting a pick-up to get you there is not really difficult as the locals living around there can get you a good deal. But if you're not too comfortable with that, you can also arrange with the hotel.

Snorkeling is okay. But beware of the undercurrent as it can really be deceiving. Hold on tight to the ropes and make sure you put on your flippers so you don't get carried away just like what happened to us. It was very scary.

There are no straight flights to Tioman Island. The only way to go is by Ferry. To save you the hassle, it's best to go for agency package tours so they can arrange it for you. DO NOT FORGET to ask if they have promotions...:)
