How tourists can reach the villages
in Pulau Tioman
If you plan to come by land, you have to come to the Mersing
Jetty in the state of Johor or Endau (Tg. Gemuk) Jetty in the
state of Pahang.
Once you reach any of the jetties, you
can purchase your ferry return tickets. Ferries here make
about 2 return trips per day - one in the morning and another in
the afternoon. However, if you miss the ferry you would have to
stay in one of the budget hotels in Mersing or in Endau for the
next trip to Tioman.
The ferry will stop at Genting
Village first and then proceed to stop at Paya Village where
tourists will disembarked. If you fail to disembark, you
will have to stop at Tekek Village and take a water taxi back to
2. If you plan to come by plane, you have
to take your flight from Skypark Subang Terminal (Sultan Abdul Aziz
Shah Airport) in Subang, Selangor
or from Seletar Airport in Singapore. The flight is Berjaya
Air and the plane will land at Tekek Village as there is a small
airport. There tourists will have to take a water taxi to
Paya village. It is about 10 minutes journey.
