Hey Fit Travellers our there 🙂 We did a lot of research what should be the best Island to find some peace, good dives or snorkels and hikes after the city life of KL and our outcome was: Pulau Tioman or on English Tioman Island.
So we booked a bus to Gemok Jetty (you could also get a ferry from Mersing Jetty – depends on the tides) and from here to Tioman Island – Air Batang, coz this is where we decided to stay.
We found a great place called ABC Chalet, located directly at the beach and run by a local really nice family. They picked us up at the pier and showed us around on the first evening so that we can enjoy the Island the next days.
On our second day, we wanted to go diving with blue heaven divers, but they turned out to be really unreliable and so we just ended up in hiking to monkey bay and spending a really nice evening there 🙂
Alltough we wanted to see the underwater world of Tioman and so we booked a snorkeing trip with ABC Chalets for the next day. This was soooo cool. The visibility at the snorkeling spots was great, the boat driver was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed the whole day. We even made new friends there on the boat – Kevin, Sharon and their two amazing children Carys and Robbie. We fell in love with these two cuties at first sight and so we ended up in spending the whole rest of the evening with them 😀
For the next and sadly last day here on the Island we planned another hike, but after 4 kilometers of hiking, we lost the path and so we just decided to go back and spend the day at the beach with our new little friends 😀
Early next morning we took the ferry to Mersing and a Bus to Singapore 😀 Time to explore another cityyyyyy
