We've had few trips around and after spending some time in Sentosa (supposed to be a resort) my friends wants to go for some real beach and wants to have fun snorkeling and scuba. We want to go for some not so commercial place and we went to Tioman.
To reach Tioman we took the Coach (Bus) from Singapore and it dropped us at Mersing from where we took a Boat and it's about 1 hour 30 min journey. Speed boats are available thought slightly expensive.
We've to walk through mangroves and while walking there is power cut and the bell boy lit a small lantern and showed us the way. We're a bit concerned but when we reached the room our fears went away. it's tidy, Air Con working fine, TV is there but little channels, Iron box and Hair blower was there as well. We fresh up and went for our dinner. There is a restaurant and we asked them to serve some thing spicy. It took a couple of beers and half a KG of sugar to get the chilli out of all corners of my mouth. I guess they must have put a ton of red chilli (They call it Chilli Padi). After that we're served some nice fish and rice. Food was ok.
They have scuba PADI as well within the hotel. Also they arrange some tours for snorkeling. Return we took the speed boat and came back to Mersing.
The total cost for us is about 50 SGD for night and we shared the room so it's quite cheap I can say.
There are some other expensive hotels as well but as we want a short & cheap holiday this hotel suited and met our purpose.
