Why not just go by yourself. It is truly not too difficult !
I don't mind. but i'm afraid rooms at Paya Beach is fully booked for the period i want

other resort e.g. Berjaya is more expensive :x

Socrates, may i know where to get the bus tickets to Mersing from Singapore? Adv. booking allowed?

Paya beach is full of Singaporeans as almost all packages from Singapore have tie ups with resorts there. So I am not surprised that it is fully booked.

To me I prefer Salang very much more. Plenty of lodgings which are affordable. trust me you do not have to do an advance booking. the moment you step off the bus at mersing the touts will come and ask you if you are interested in booking their rooms at Tioman. They will show you lots of nice pictures but I think the best is to look at the real thing yourself. Once you reach Salang, just walk around and find the one that you like best for price and comfort.

Other than Salang , Ayer batang is also a good choice.

Just relax and enjoy. Tell us your experience when you get back.

Enjoy

Think you can take ferry from Tenah Merah Ferry Terminal as well but I remember was quite expensive... something like $89 per person for a 2.5 hour boat ride. Don't know why the boat seem damm slow and they still charge so expensive.

Maybe now no business close hsop liao..

yah the resorts at Paya Beach are fully booked~ not surprising as well...since those days are weekends and holiday.

So I will have to take a bus to JB then to Mersing?
Local agencies can provide such service right - save the trouble of changing buses?

I agree loh, when I went Salang beach in May 2006, all the resorts there have empty rooms. Prices are negotiable, and your meals and activities are free and easy, meaning you choose which resort and restaurant to eat whenever you want and you just find one of the boat stalls and ask them to bring you wherever, time negotiable. Plus the beach is very nice, especially near the extreme left, with live corals, anemone, and clownfish further out from the shore, and also secluded "cubby holes" surrounded by rocks :s12:.

I never went Paya beach before, so can't really compare with Salang Beach.
