Travel Advice:

Getting here from either KL or Singapore is easy and well traveled, many others take the same route.  Malaysia is a friendly country for the most part, and all along your travel people can advise you if you ask.  Most people know some English, but it is not even that necessary, you just need to ask for “Tioman” or “Toilets” (depending which you want to get to), and people will point for you.  Get an early start if you want to leave either KL or Singapore and catch the ferry to Tioman that same day. Expect all travel times to take longer than stated.

Try to sit in the middle of a bus, and the back 1/3 of a ferry (more comfortable & less bounce).
