Trip to Pulau Perhentian

Just came back from a 3 day 2 nite trip to Perhentian Island. The island is located at east coast pennisular Malaysia close to Terrenganu. It take about one and half hour drive from Kuala Terrengganu town to the Jetty and another half and hour by boat to the island.
Coincidentally while waiting at the town for a pick up to the jetty, I met one of my friend. He is on his way to Redang Island, another island along the east coast which is also close to Perhentian Island.
The place I stay is  Bubu Long Beach Resort. It is located at Perhentian Kecil. There is only this one major resort along that beach.
Perhentian is a beatiful island. The island is quite isolated and full of visitors from the west. The sea water is greenish and blue and so clear that you can see through into the sea. My major activity there was snorkelling. It feel so great to be able to see the corals with my own eys and swim along side with the fishes.
All I can say for this trip is WOW! Thanks to my friend, Chin Syan who has brought me into this trip.
