Hi gurus, is there a ferry service that carries car fr Mersing jetty to Tioman island itself? I'm travelling with a total of 7pax young and old alike and on a budget too. Thank you
we are looking for safe accommodation near/at the beach, where our kids can spend most of the time playing on clean sand, and hopefully snorkel/ swim near /feed fishes, without having to book a boat to another area. We'll probably book a boat for only once in our trip of 5 days. any recommendation. With restaurants nearby. accommodation budget around RM100-130 per day. thanks for any suggestions!

Me and my boyfriend are planning a trip to Malaysia from mid september to the beginning of October. We are thinking about visiting Pulau Tioman as it sound amazing. He loves to surf, but it sounds like most people come to surf in the monsoon at the end of October and November. Would it be possible to surf from Juara in late September? I'd love to hear if anyone has seen people doing it at this time of year or tried themselves.
Hi, Me and my wife, we will be coming to Tioman from Singapore. Have a few queries on the place. We are traveling on a budget. We would basically like to enjoy relaxed beach on a day, and go for a snorkeling trip on the other day. Can you please advise as of which village in Tioman will be the best to stay for us? Thank you in advance. :)
Hello I am planning to go to Pulau Tioman alone, to explore this beautiful island. I live in KL. Please let me know how to go there, and it is necessary to make pre booking of hotels. Can we make on spot booking? Please reffer the hotels near some good beach along with the prices my budget is RM 100 p/nite. R.S.A.P
I am considering going to Pulau Tioman for the first time. First time to Malaysia alltogether. I am thinking about staying at Berjaya Tioman Resort, which supposedly should have decent snorkeling right off the beach. Is this true? If it is, how are the waters there generally? I am not really a strong swimmer. If there are better places on the island to snorkel off - which has calm waters - I'd appreciate if anyone would mention them :-) Thanks in advance
We plan a 10days escape in early October....can't decide though where wiuld be the best accommodation around 50usd/night on a nice beach and few massage parlors nearby for us and the 5yo kid.... Is advance bookings really necessary or we can handle it on spot too? If really needed, any lodging reccomendations, please? We only need nice beach, affordable massage and if possible, a bar or two :-) Many thanks, already.
Where is this pub located i mean near to which chalet. Pls advice thanks
Hi guys, Please advice me on the following issue im planning to go to tioman for the first time with my wife. My expectation is too have a good clean beach and beach walk and nice barbeque in night with open bars, Inn the afternoon just sit near the beach with tender coconut drink.(no Snorkerling) My question is when i sufr the net on tioman there is some issue on monster lizard nad phyton so my wife is very particullar on this issue and she is sensetive to. There are two resort in my mind Bamboo Challet(ABC) and Samudra swiss cottage (Tekek village) Which place should fit for my taste and best avoid the monster lizard, phython and tigers. Confused.
Is it better to pre-book boat rides to Tioman, or is it safe that at anytime we arrive at Mersing there will be plenty of boat rides or ferry rides that we can buy on the spot?. I am going on a public holiday. As i tend to drive there, i dont know exactly what time i arrive to Mersing, so i was thinking would it be a good idea that once i arrive, i can buy the next boat ticket out??. Also, I am staying at berjaya tioman hotel, does the ferry or speed boat dock near the berjaya hotel?, or how do i get from the dock to the hotel?? Thanks

Hi All I will be staying at Japamala resort in October this year. I have been reading all your suggestions about visiting various beaches, snorkeling, jungle trekking and dining on the beach. I was wondering how accesible other beaches and restaurants are from Japamala? Can I walk or take a water Taxi and what would you recomend is the best beach in Tioman? I see also that people have recomended snorkeling tours and an island tour? Would I be able to book these from Japamala or elsewhere? Is there any transportation available at night? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much Anthony

Hi! I know this question has been posted a few times, but the are all a bit older. We are travelling to Malaysia with our 3 kids (9, 7 & 4) mid July and would like about a week on a relaxing island with lots of swimming and snorkelling. I was looking at both Redang and Tioman - what are your thoughts on which one is better - or even any other islands that you would recommend. We don't want it too commercial. Thanks for your help. Eva
