Pulau Tioman, East Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
Wow! This island is awesome!!! There are plenty of places to stay along the shore lines but I decided to get away from the beach houses and go up to the cliff villas! More peaceful and a little more expensive so you don't get every bloke asking if they can crash with you. Otherwise, the snorkling is truely brilliant and island hoping from resort to resort on different islands is what I highly recommend! There are just so many islands and its enough time to spend 2 to 3 days on each then relocate to another island to spread out your experiences. Food at malaysian villas are often western.. sometimes you will get some Thai or Indian which is great as eating Malay's attempts at western food is not what its about to travel to this region.

Basically to me , Tioman Island is a place to really rest and relax. I've lost count the number of times I've been to the island. The best way to explore the island is to trek. The usual 3days 2nights travel package is not enough to appreciate the beauty of the island. My advise is to stay at least for a week. Be nice to the locals. Be nice to the resort/hotel staffs, make friends with them and treat them with respect, you'll be surprise how much fun they can bring to you. Get back to the basics of simplicity. You'll learn many life lessons along the way. Explore other kampongs/villages.

If you are from the city, my advise for you is to store away your ritz carlton / hilton attitude. However there's one and only 5 stars resort on the island you may enjoy which is the Berjaya Resort. Put aside the 5 stars resort and opt for a mid range room in any kampong/village. Its time to explore and serendipity on the island is ubiquitous.

Here are the list kampongs/ villages/resorts you may enjoy.
1) Kampong Genting (Island Reef Resort)
2) Kampong Paya (Tioman Paya Beach Resort/ Tioman Paya Resort)
3) Salang
4) Juhara
