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! 
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!
Adam was amazing, sleeping his way through all the tough bits like winding roads, hot boat rides, etc... and no-one got mosquito bites (a miracle).

  1. Awesome shots and sounds like a great time was had by all. Lucky you. And wasn't Adam just so good throughout.
