Tioman – a dragon princess


Situated in the South China Sea, Tioman Island is shaped like a dragon with giant trees covering its central area of jungle. The dragon’s horns are in fact cliffs, with exotic birds circling in occasional mist. Legend has it that a dragon princess once stopped to rest here and decided to stay put, because the area was so beautiful. If you take your own princess along with you in the form of a female travel companion, perhaps you will have the same experience. The picture-postcard prettiness of the island’s best parts is clearly the main attraction of Tioman, with waterfalls, palm trees, tropical plants and multiple species of birds and mammals.


Underwater adventures and scenery – Tioman Island diving and snorkelling

Affordable and with incredible scenery, the island has a number of public beaches near all the villages, in addition to a number of private beaches in resorts. Tioman also offers adventure with impressive diving and snorkelling, including boat trips to explore the tropical coral reefs and teeming fish. The marine life is abundant and the underwater visibility is superb – even with a mask and snorkel from the surface, you will quickly see why Tioman is a popular scuba-diving Mecca. There are even two different species of turtles here and such scenery is best explored with a travel buddy, so as to share in the experience.


See Tioman jungle waterfalls with a travel companion

If you and your female travel companion are active people, it is also possible to go rock climbing with specialist equipment and support. To enjoy a more sedate yet impressive experience, you might like to visit one or two of the various waterfalls, where mountain streams gush over cliffs onto granite boulders, making attractive photo opportunities. Alternatively, a boat trip around the island is a great way to see all of the sights; some locations on the island simply cannot be reached by road! Jungle trekking is an option too, with some paths quite well established but unpaved, whereas others are level and easily accessible.


Relaxation and shopping with a holiday partner

If you prefer to switch off and be pampered, one or two resorts and hotels have spas that offer luxurious massages or a choice of body scrubs, wraps and grooming, as well as hand and feet treatments. How better to end a day than to both unwind by receiving some well-deserved wellness? Finally, larger stores in Tekek offer shopping, with duty-free wine, spirits and tobacco.


Enjoy Tioman Island with a female holiday companion

It is said that travel broadens the mind; with two for company, the planning and amazing experiences can also be shared. Travelling with a holiday partner lightens the load and helps you feel more secure too. In your chosen lodgings or hotel in Tioman, there will be opportunities to enjoy chatting about the great day, as well as bouncing ideas off each other if necessary for the next day – unless you prefer to totally relax with a spa session and rub down, or a day just admiring the beautiful beach and scenery.
