Berjaya Redang Resort Review, Redang Island, Terengganu, MALAYSIA
It is one of the best resorts in Redang, no doubt about it. I’m talking about the Berjaya Redang Resort. Redang Island is one of my favourite destinations in the region apart from Bali and Phuket. I had been going there almost in yearly basis.
We reached Berjaya Redang via coach from the Redang Island airport.
My recent visit to Berjaya Redang Resort was in April for a friend’s wedding there. Together with our friends, we flew to Redang via Berjaya Air for the first …

Travel Moments: Turtles Mating Spotted at Turtle Bay, Redang Island, MALAYSIA
This one of the moments that when it happened without me. Rachel went to Redang Island a few years back with her buddies in an all girls trip and had a great time snorkeling around Turtle Bay. Luckily, Rachel is a good swimmer and she enjoys snorkeling without a life jacket, something which I couldn’t do.

Pulau Dayang Bunting Marble Geopark, Langkawi, MALAYSIA
A few tourists asked me about Langkawi during our (Rachel and I) way back from Cambodia. It seems to be Langkawi is very popular with the European and the North American tourists. They seems to have a lot of interest and knowledge in Langkawi and Penang, maybe Tourism Malaysia did they part well there. Langkawi now, is very much different than it used to be. My first trip to Langkawi dated bac k to 1990s, where the tourist attractions were only the Mahsuri tomb …

My previous trip to Langkawi really changed my perception towards the island. It really changed so much over the past decade. From a duty free island to now a more adventurous and fun island. The island hopping tour we paid, brought to this beautiful Beras Basah Island.
A direct translation of Beras Basah means wet rice. It’s one of the popular destination in Langkawi island. And example of Beras Basah Island or Pulau Beras Basah by Tourism Malaysia.

*Written by Rachel Ting*
Our 2008 trip to Redang was a good one. It was actually Wilson’s first time to Redang Island. We didn’t stay at one of the top resorts, we opted for an average resort which was averagely good. Our package includes snorkeling trips to Redang Marine Park with the additional fee of RM 5 (US$ 1.8) only.
The island is well maintained, crowded by tourist but it was very clean. We were advised to snorkel around the island and it was indeed one of the best snorkeling site we’ve …
Bat Cave at Langkawi, MALAYSIA
Often when we talk about bat cave, the first thing that comes to our mind is Batman. Well, it is true that Batman has a bat cave. However, our country Malaysia also have our version of bat cave.
Located in Langkawi, the bat cave tour is usually packaged under the mangrove tour. Tour prices varies depending on how many person per boat and what type of boat hired. What I can say is we got ourselves quite a sweet deal. This was dated back in October last …
The top 2 pictures are Penang Island/ Pulau Pinang. Bottom 2 pictures are most likely Langkawi Island.

Pictures are photoshop a bit but there are more work can be done. Tone and color is not perfect yet.
How smalls are the islands from top. They are lovely aren’t they?
