After we check in, we prepared ourselves on snorkeling trip on that morning too . . . There were five of us on the boat. Two passengers were Americans and we had a nice trip with them.

I presented the marine fishes pictures that I shot before this. I'm so excited to see the fishes crowded around us when we throw the bread.

It's so beautiful . the sea's glimmering with sunlight . colorful fishes swim around . the sea breeze whispered slowly my cheek . heaven on earth .

If not mistaken, there were 4 point of snorkeling trip such as turtle bay, shark bay, coral point and fish garden. If you decide to take this package it will around RM45.00 per pax and it will take aroun 2 or 3 hours trip .... worth it. Really . . .

Some of the fishes I saw before were the fishes that I kept in the aquarium. Before this I am a marine keeper. Fishes such as four stripes damsel, wrasse and giant clam all in front of my eyes in their natural habitat. Only one word can describe all those creatures and beautiful nature. Amazing !!

Fish Garden Point- Fat and Energetic fishes moving around searching for food.

Coral Garden Point

Once a time a go, Pulau Perhentian was a place for fisherman to have a cover or temporary shelter from a bad weather or storm. Since that, this island got his name, Perhentian. Perhentian in English means stop. So that was the story I hear and read. Please correct me if I'm wrong and I don't want to spread a false story.

If you realized, there were light green and dark area blotch in this picture. It was because the sand under the sea were white. The white sands reflect the light and produce the light green color that you can see in the picture. While the dark area were the coral barrier blotch. In this area, I found many black sea cucumber. This creature eat the sand that polluted with dirt. Might be because of that the sand here were too clean and white...just my guess...

Here the American couple with us. Guess how old is the man .... this man are around 60+ years old but he seem still fit. He said to me that I'm ate too KFC. hahaha .... According to him, he was in education board in America after retired as a lecturer and his wife was a English teacher.

resting . . . after snorkeling trip on the wooden jetty of Arwana Resort.

Enjoying the view

I touch up a bit of this picture . . .

This is our room. Superior type, got one masterbed and two single bed. I'm satisfied with the room facility but when it comes to meal occasion . . . I quite disappointed with served meal and the taste were so bad.

The first day dinner . . . what do you always hope and expected from the dinner buffet? a lot of variety food, cakes, drinks and dessert serve?

NO !! ... there were only a cold fried rice with nothing inside it and fried "beehoon" . That all. Huhhhhh ... gave a bad impression for my first dinner. I gave only one star for food occasion here. Really really bad.

That all for my first day in Pulau Perhentian.

I enjoyed snorkeling very much,

I enjoyed the scenery of the Island's

I was welcomed here nicely

but the food spoil a bit of my dream . . . I have a colorful dream ... how about you?It's in color also?

This is the PRICE LIST in Perhentian Island for 2008


Dear reader, this is the price list referrer and you can make a comparison for which accommodations you would like to stay.

There were certain things you should think before choosing the resort you like :

1. The resort location :
Better you check this out because in some resorts location, there is no coral spot near the beach. Mean, you either must take a boat to reach the coral spot. This will increase your budget. If your resort location got coral spot, then during the free time, if you have a time you can just borrow the snorkel gadget, life jacket and the fringe for RM 5.00 each for a day, and you freely just dump in the water nearby or the coral spot in front of your resort.

Need to know where is the Coral Spot Area....please don't hesitate to ask me.

2. Happening or Peaceful Resort Area?
This is another important thing for you to think. Got places that is so happening and full with visitors and some were peaceful, calm, few visitors and relaxing. Make your own decision...

and don't to ask the local or the resort ...

3. Food ... Food ... Food ....
Sometimes after meal occasion at the hotel or resort that can make you got "pening" because the food price is high, then sometimes you need and must find the local food restaurant . There were many local stalls and restaurants in island that taste better from the food at the resort.

For the muslims, they might conscious about their halal food. I found out certain resort cafe or restaurant served alcohol and the food itself, that I'm too curious to take such as at the Tuna Bay restaurant . But the place there is nice.

    Name pulau die D'Lagoon, dekat perhentian kecil, depan Perhentian Island Resort. .
    Coral kt pulau die memang tiptop. .
    Plus harga chalet yang murah gile.
    Dulu mase saya pergi tu, harga chalet dia yg paling murah Rm 10 semalaman,
    1 bilik, 2 katil bujang. .
    murah kn?
    Tapi skarang ni xtau la kot2 dah naik ke.

    betul2. yg free diorang sediakan yg basic je. tak leh nak setting layout ape sume. just pilih theme dan edit header je. nak tambah widget pon susah. kene ar cari domain sendiri, pastu upgrade. tapi dia ade ajar cara nak pasang plugin, susah sikit ar.

  19. razifembi // 29 September 2008 at 13:44  

    Yela betulla jugak ...

    tapi kalu ada extra, dalam rm400 lebey dah lepas kalau pergi ramai2 ...

    1. tambang k.besut - p.perhentian = RM 70.00(perpax)

    2. snorkeling trip sekitar p.perhetian = RM 45.00(perpax)

    3. Chalet = terpulang kepada budget.

    4. Makan = jangan makan kat hotel, makan jer kat pulau kecil, perkampungan nelayan. Takpun ada restoran local yang harganya ok.

    5. Tambang taxi air = nak bergerak sana sini gunakan bot kecik. Budget dalam RM40, kalau hampa nak merayau2...puas da tu ...

    6. kalau nak snorkel depan resort, bley sewa alat snorkel.

    a. snorkel = rm5.00
    b. life jacket = rm5.00 ( jgn risau
    kalau tak reti berenang pun)
    c. fringe (kaki itik) = rm5.00 (
    kalau reti guna la) aku barefoot

    7. Ada extra duit = join trip ke Redang & Lang Tengah = RM90.00 seorang .

    hehehe..sekadar nasihat...poison...poison..

  20. enchek camera // 29 September 2008 at 15:14

  24. Sasha // 22 October 2008 at 10:22  

    Hi... Razif. I'm planning on a vacay in Pulau Redang early next year. How do I get there from mainland to the island?... using hotel boat or is there any boat for rental? how much will it cost?... i'm clueless about this... please help...

  25. razifembi // 22 October 2008 at 14:36  

    As far as I know, you need to go to MERANG first. There is jetty there to Redang Island. . . fisherman jetty there too . . .

    Question whether you go by hotel boat or daily boat...depend on you . . .

    The boat fee I don't know because never go Redang thru MERANG. Fee to Perhentian from Besut is RM70.00(two ways) for adult...I guess the fee might around that too.

    Or there is also Berjaya Air also depart from kl...more easy and can enjoy scenary from air .

    Happy holidays and don't forget to share with us the moment ... Thanks
