Hello once again!
After a few nights out in KL we headed to an island off the southeast coast called Tioman. We spent a week there and really chilled. That was mainly because there was hardly anyone there!! It was so empty. Seemingly it was just after the off-season and we got there before the majority of the tourists arrived. The beach we were on was small and didn't have any places that sold beer!! Malaysia is a Muslim country and beer is hard to come by (outside the main towns.... and Langkawi!) at the best of times so we went without a single beer for a week! Can you believe that? Didn't think so but it's true. Wasn't that hard really! As for the beaches, we were disappointed. The island is advertised as the place where the film South Pacific was filmed. Well it certainly wasn't filmed on any of the beaches we saw that's for sure! Still it was nice enough to keep us amused for a week... that and the 3.75 euro a night accommodation for a beach hut!
