Tioman Island

Pulau Tioman is one of the most beautiful islands of Malaysia. It is located on the eastern side of the Malaysian peninsular. It has been regarded as a jewel in the sea. One early Malaysian legend claims Tioman to be a transformed dragon princess. Apparently the beautiful princess stopped enroute to Singapore from China to admire the charms of this spot. She was so pleased, so she decided to discontinue her journey, take the form of an island, and remain there as a place of shelter and comfort to passing travellers.
The island is well-known for underwater adventure, snorkelling and windsurfing. From Mersing to Tioman, you can go either by speed boat (max passenger 20) or speed ferry (max passenger 150). Alternatively you can take a ferry from Singapore or Kuantan.
