Our first full day in Tioman. I managed to find the path to the local fishing village and so managed to get in the obligatory run. It was hard work as the track was undulating and the conditions humid. The village was very quaint with a small school, mosque, a couple of local shops and police station. No real road, just access via a one lane strip of concrete road.
After breakfast we decided to walk back to the village. We extended the walk to the waterfall ...
... Rock of Ages, Eugene Simon from Game of Thrones, Nate Parker from The Secret Life of Bees, Ethen Peck from In Time and Jessica Lowndes who made her name in 90210, to name a few.

The ferry journey was good just an hour and a half. They stop at Genting first then Paya then Tekek, ABC and finally Salang. We got off at Tekek and walked along the ...
... 3 hours, a book and several cups of tea later I was still there and it had just about stopped raining. Deciding there was not enough time for the jungle walk which would be about 3 hours each way I opted for a shorter walk the other direction to a place called monkey bay. I was 5 minutes into it when I realised the air was swarming with Mosquitos and I had 5 or 6 bites already. I promptly turned back and wasted the rest of the day in the dorm. I'd had enough at this point and decided ...
