Tioman Island was great - good accommodation, meals all included (no cooking yay!), and awesome beaches. It is a popular holiday destination for local people, so it was refreshing that it wasn't at all touristy - as the photos show, this was the real thing!

Tioman Island, Malaysia
After much anticipation, our 3-day holiday to Malaysia's Tioman Island finally arrived, and what an amazing experience it has been. We left Singapore by bus at 6.30 am on Wednesday 18th March for a 3-hour trip to Mersing. After a hot and chaotic wait at the wharf, we boarded the ferry to Tioman Island for a 2-hour boat ride. My fears of seasickness were unfounded as the ocean (South China Sea) was very very still - nothing like the Foveaux Strait trip to Stewart Island!
