The Phams Summer 2009 Adventure in Vietnam, Malaysia & Borneo travel blog


Beach bum

Perhentian Islands

After traveling by bus the entire day, we caught the last boat at 5:30 pm to the Perhentain Islands off Kuala Besut. We grabbed the first and what seemed like one of the last rooms available on the island. After a hot, mosquito-y night we searched the next day for a better room and after careful negotiation landed a wonderful air con room in a nicer resort. A little over our budget but since we figured we'd be on the beach and snorkeling all day we could splurge.

The snorkeling here is incredible and we spent the next two days on the beach enjoying seeing the beautifully colored tropical fish. It's like swimming in an aquarium.

This afternoon ends our time here when we head back into the mainland to catch a flight to KL and then onto Sandakan, our first port of arrival in Borneo!
