My flatmate got a notification from makemytrip.com about a discount on international flights, so he decided to celebrate his birthday on some island in Malaysia. We planned for the trip in the fourth week of July 2018 and got the round trip for INR 10,000 (570 Ringgit) /person only from Delhi. There were three of us.

1. How to reach Tioman from Kuala Lumpur
We landed at the Kuala Lumpur International airport at 7 AM and took a taxi from there to Mersing Jetty. It cost us way too much, around 700 ringgits( 2 Ringgit (INR 35)/km). Generally private taxi drivers take a longer route to make money. I’ll recommend you guys to take a bus from Kuala Lumpur. The cost of the bus is 50 Ringgit (INR 877)/per head only. Buses are available from 6:00 AM till 2:00 PM. Mersing is approximately 350 Kms from the airport and will take 5 hours to reach.
