planning for a visit to perhentian this June.
booked the earliest ticket to kota baru to reach the island. now some important queries arised:
I have a small boy (will be 8months by then) and wife accompanying
1. is the boat journey safe? i heard that there are only small boats available with mostly open decks. would we get wet? baby? rolling?
2. planning to stay on Besar. is there a lot of mosquitoes? should i really be worried about the child's safety? maleria like attacks can be there? what about dangers from other insects/animals?
3. need a budget hotel, with standard facilities and security... are there available options?
4. food - do they have number of options and quality foods there?
Now that i have booked the flight from KL-kota baru, i cant change it (budget career airasia) without charges. is it possible to route to merang jetty from kota baru airport if i decide to go to redang instead?
thanx in advance for your feedbacks.
