Tioman, Malaysia
 

 

 
Kind of travel: Travelling alone
Year of this voyage: 2004
Author's age: 45-60 years
 

 
In April 2004 we visited Tioman at the East-Coast of Malaysia, -according to "Time Magazine"- one of the 10 most beautiful island of our world. We were lucky that Ary's parents wanted to take care of our beloved daughter Kim (2 years at that time). So we could spend three weeks to explore Singapore and the East- and West-Coast of Malaysia.

You can reach the island of Tioman by speedboat from Singapore in 6 - 7 hours, but we preferred a relaxed bus-trip from Singapore to Mersing. There we took a little ferry that brought us to the island in about ca. 3 - 4 hours.

On Tioman there are only a couple of small villages "kampungs" with very few huts and restaurants, mostly situated near beautiful beaches and bays. All is quite cheap, simple and original.

The jungle spreads until the blue, crystal-clear water at the empty, white sand beaches with lots of coconut palms.

Holiday photos and travel impressions par excellence! With small fishing boats it is easy to get to many uninhabited groups of islands, some are just big rocks in the sea, where it is great for diving and snorkeling.

This island is for sure a paradise for divers and fans of a sea underworld, that is in great condition and filled with lots of colourful fish. In warm and crystal-clear water you will find all gorgeous and breathtaking impressions you're looking for.

We rent a cottage in "Kampung Air Batang", a simple hut right at seaside; there where others up the hill towards the jungle. On Tioman island you can go from bay to bay only by boat.

There is only one single road on the island to a bigger beach resort. If you want to walk across the island you will find little paths through the jungle. Such a trip turns out to be a great adventure along narrow and steep jungle paths.

After one week of relaxing, enjoying and exploring the island we went on towards the west coast of Malaysia to Melaka, that ancient trading place at Melaka River.

Since 2006 he is living mostly in his house in Bali with his Balinesse wife Yuni. He always felt drawn to the island of Bali, with its people, culture, religion and its countryside. More than 17.500 islands of the Indonesian archipelago are lying now in front of his doorstep, waiting to be discovered.
