Of course, besides tax exempted imported products that can be purchased, Tioman Island also offers a variety of activities and attractions.
Surrounded by crystal-clear azure waters filled with all sorts of underwater wonders, it comes as no surprise that the most popular activities on the island are scuba diving and snorkeling.
There are several dive operators providing a comprehensive range of diving services and courses and we saw a group of people taking scuba diving lesson while we were there.
#6 Vacationing versus living and working on an island are far different. I wondered what it is like living on an island as I watched the dive crew and scuba instructor loading those scuba tanks onto a boat.
#8 Many resorts/chalets offer snorkeling trips to nearby islands and you can easily rent a mask, fins and life jacket and wade into the water from the beach!
I envy people who can jump into the water and swim like fish. Imagine seeing brightly colored fish and ocean life inches from your face. Not only I don't know how to swim, but I also tend to panic in open water and one of my biggest fears is deep water.
#11 Ralph was really enjoying himself, wasn't he?
#14 Because of the absence of roads on Tioman, the only way to reach all the attractions of the island is by boat. Many operators and resorts offer you the opportunity to see the highlights of Tioman in a one-day round-island tour.
If you have sea legs and prefer staying on land, you can always go for a hike and check out breathtaking waterfalls. For those with an adventurous spirit, advanced rock-climbers can attempt the full five-day climb to the top of the famous twin peaks, but only a few climbers have managed to reach the top to date!
Unfortunately, we didn't spend much time there, so we left Tioman without doing all these activities.
#15 Also, I was more interested in lazing on the clean sandy beach all day long
and snapping away at beautiful subjects!
#18 The gorgeous Italian couple who was in their own dream world
#22 Adorable kids!
I wish I could share all the pictures, but I can't - you know, with the slow internet connection and all.
