Tioman to Kuantan

From Tioman we spent a night between two islands called Sembilang and Seiri Buat and had the most wonderful time snorkelling. The fish were not that abundant but the coral was just brilliant from purples, pinks, blues, yellows and white. The next night was spent anchored off the beach at Rompin where we attended a local festival. We have been anchored off the beach in front of the Hyatt Resort at Kuantan for four days. It is a very rolly anchorage and so have had to use both of our "flopper stoppers" - they work a treat. We have a rally "high tea" here tonight and will head out to the islands in the morning.

Desaru, Pulau Aur and Tioman

We are in the Tioman group of islands on the east side of the Malaysia Penninsula and will be in this area before heading north for the next nine days. Very good diving and snorkelling. I (Chris) have certainly put to good use Steve and Marion Collis gift of a coral viewer -- not sure of the name but you don't have to get wet to view the coral and all the fish within. Magnificant!
