Malaysia. After a close to 6 hour bus ride from Kua Lumpar to Mersing we missed the ferry by 30 mins. Great. And it was the last ferry ride to Tioman Island. Just our luck.
A night at Omar’s Backpackers (Super friendly guy, pretty shabby digs though) in Mersing and lunch at KFC….really KFC. This was my first real day in Malaysia.
Mersing is really just a transport area to get to Tioman, no one really goes there unless they are headed to Tioman Island….so if you get stuck there….go head over to Omar’s backpackers really close to the ferry terminal. Eat at Cake Mania for good cheap food and free wifi…plus they can speak English. Win win.
cheers and happy traveling.
