I am an asthmatic so I can't dive, but kite surfing or sailing (not snorkelling), would be great. I am not in the best financial position, so could someone let me know what's available to someone like me?
I'm staying in genting, but can travel to tektek or salang.
Hi.. can anyone recommend any good hotel at Salang area?
Any recommend for Island Hopping and snorkelling in Pulau Tioman as we will stay in Berjaya Tioman Resort.
Planning on a trip with my mates to Tioman island next month and I have a few questions. We decided on staying at Juara Mutiara Resort. Is the place safe for a group of females? Also, what activities can be done at Juara? Any feedback would be great!
our family has been booked on a 06h30 ferry from Mersing to Tioman, we will drive from Singapore the evening before. Where is best for us to overnight considering we will leave Singapore around 5pm and need to be at the ferry port by 5am. Is there a hotel halfway between the Singapore and Mersing, or is it best to just push through to Mersing and overnight there?
Are the kitchenwares like pots (zebra brand) and happy call double sided grill pan, etc cheap in Tioman like they are in Langkawi?
can we do star-gazing at Tioman? which part is suitable? Thanks
Hi I'm interested in going to Palau Tioman in late January, early February and was curious about the monsoon. Is the resort open to tourists during this time of the year. Are the main snorkeling and diving spots open?
Can you recommend any other alternatives if this is the case during this period from late January to early February.
Hi do you know if I can hike from Tunamaya Resort to Asah waterfalls? I prefer hiking to taking a speedboat. Thanks!

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.
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.
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
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.
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??
Greetings! Has anyone stayed at Paya Beach Resort recently? Would appreciate your comments and feedback on this place. I've come across 2 feedback here, one pretty good and the other, not so good. Would appreciate your feedback.. to at least break the tie.
I'm planning a trip end Sept and would appreciate your help. Thanks and have a good day!
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
if there is anyone who had been to tioman and stayed at japamala please let us know your experiences and how good are the beaches near japamala resort. Also if possible do suggest us the "do's" and "dont's" as well at japamala.

I would like to go to Tioman islands on the 23rd of February (Tuesday) (in 4 days). Its the only time I can go - give or take a day as I have a flight from Singapore on the March the 2nd. I just wondering how reliable are the ferries if the weather is bad. i checked the forecast and it said it was raining a bit in the afternoons. Will this stop the ferries.
