Perhentian Island...

We just came back from Perhentian Island! For the uninitiated, it is located off Trengganu where it hosts the best beaches in Malaysia. Seriously, the island is so beautiful, no words can do justice...

We flew with Airasia to Kota Bharu. Shaqeel was so excited and kept exclaiming "Airplane! Airplane!" Kota Baru airport to the jetty takes about 1 hour by taxi and from the jetty to Perhentian Besar takes about 35minutes. It's a big boat so it's not bumpy at all.

We stayed at Tunabay Resort at Perhentian Besar. Very child friendly resort, 
clean chalet and yummy but pricey food (my only gripe), but what do you expect huh. They need to transport the ingredients by boat from mainland, but how come the seafood is expensive too? 

So so beautiful!

Among the many reasons why I am in love with this resort is because of the corals right at the beach. You don't have to go on a snorkeling trip to enjoy the corals, it's right at your doorstep! The resort is located beside the marine park, so you can see so many colourful fish and corals.
Sighhhh I am so in love with the island...

Shaqeel did not like the water so much and was very clingy to Emil. I really need to send him for swimming lessons soon.
Conclusion, BEST GILA!
