PULAU PERHENTIAN. We booked bus ticket Mahligai Express RM43 each n left Hentian Putra for the island at 10pm @ 7/5/12.
8/5/12 - Safely reached Kuala Besut at 5am next day....very early. Then after solat subuh n
breakfast at the restaurant, catch the earliest speed boat RM70 per pax to n fro. The boat can
accomodate about 12 persons only.
Wow...my truly frightening experience sitting in the speed boat which takes almost 1 hr to reach
the island. The boat really speeding fast through the rough sea like bumping and jumping non stop.
The sorrounding area, all the water n water only. Before reaching our resort, I notice so many other
resorts as well around the beach such as Coco Beach Resort, Mamas Resort, Long Beach Resort to
name a few. At last we safely reach our resort...Pulau Perhentian Resort, check in and given a welcome drink.
just resttt.... We walked around the resort to look for dinner, found a restaurant at Mamas Resort
belongs to local n ordered fried rice for 2, price not bad only RM8@. Night time nothing much I can do so just rest and had a good sleep!!.
9/5/12 - the resort provide breakfast with varieties of locals n western foods. By 11am, we have to
get ready to checkout coz speed boat will pick up at 12 noon. So bye bye PERHENTIAN ISLAND.
