  1. We went to Tioman in March and we’re going again this August.

    Those pictures you took are really spectacular. But amazingly, Tioman is really like that. It’s a gorgeous paradise, so natural and so wild and rugged, as if going back 1000 years.

    Time stands still in Tioman. This is how I would describe it.

    We climbed the Gunung Kajang mountain with the local guide there, Mr. Iwan. It was like being in Jurassic Park.

    We saw huge centipedes, roaring underground rivers, booby-trap boulders and caves, as well as out-sized flying foxes, even some of the vegetation looked alien, covered in knitting-needle like spikes.

    I can’t wait for August to come, book the ferry and be back in Tioman, the island where time stands still.
