Tioman island

Ultimate guide 2017
Tioman is a popular tourist island in Malaysia. Despite many good reviews, the beaches are far from the best, - for example Perhentian islands are much better. So Tioman can be only interesting to the people of Singapore, as the distance between that points is very short. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Kuala Lumpur international airport (KUL). Next take a bus to Mersing, and follow to Tioman island by Bluewater Express ferry - 2 hours per way.

The ferry takes as following: Mersing - Genting - Paya - Tekek - Air-batang - Salang. Primary transportation option around the island are the boat taxis.

Once upon a time, it was possible to get to Tioman island by a regular flights or by speedboat, but now these options are not available. Flights were stopped in 2014 due to insufficient demand, while speedboats were banned after some deadly crashes.
