Hey erireD, Perhentian Islands is far away from Tioman. You'll need to get from Kuala Besut Jetty (Kuala Terengganu) to Mersing Jetty (Johor) and take a ferry from there.

How many days to you have and where are you coming from in Malaysia? If you're going from South up, then you should visit Tioman first. If you're visiting from North down, then Perhentians should be your first stop.

Also, how many days do you have? You should dedicate a day to travelling and have to bear in mind the time in which the last ferry leaves it's jetty.

I've been to Tioman and it was really enjoyable. Have yet to visit Perhentians; people say it's better than Tioman!

You can catch night bus from Jerteh to Mersing running Transnasional Bus Express,journey will take 8-9 hour on night bus.

Kuala Besut jetty to Jerteh only 25 minutes by taxi..
