Travelled along the trunk road for about 150km, we decided on Holiday Villa Cherating as our next destination. It’s undoubtedly the most popular beach along the east coast. The sandy beaches are dotted with pleasant casuarinas trees and calm water.

Holiday Villa Cherating, in my opinion is a perfect getaway place to be with friends and loved ones.

Upon left the Kapas Island, we continue our drive from Marang jetty towards Kuantan direction. During the journey, we stopped by Rantau Abang for a short visit.

The best place for the turtle breeding spot is Rantau Abang. This place is associated with turtles only.


East Coast Vacation 2010 – Kapas Island


It was so irresistible to plan a trip like this. To make this trip perfectly stand out its efficiency, I formed a group of 4 peoples as a perfect group. It just took me a short term to plan and confirmed the final preparation. By given a name of An Ultimate East Coast Vacation, it can be just a simple trip. How can it be?

It’s a budget vacation but yet it’s called Ultimate Vacation. In fact, our mind and soul had compassed a great force of vacation joyful. 4 days and 3 nights vacation was sound environmentally from places such as island, beach, hill, waterfall and town has turned into beach, beach, beach and beach.

We have surpassed 4 beaches in 4 days vacation. Thanks to the low peak season, we have not encountered any issue hopping from beach to beaches. That was sound crazy but we made it possible with Free N Easy way.

Malaysia East Coast is quite popular with white sandy beaches along the Terengganu coast. Most of the places are turned into beach resort accommodation for local and foreigner. Our main destination was Kapas Island, follow by sub destination such as Rantau Abang, Cherating and Teluk Chempedak. The sub destination was only decided as we went along the route from Kapas Island. That’s reality and joy of it.


A Day Trip to Pulau Ketam


Pulau Ketam if translated literally, means “crab island”. It is a small island located off the coast of Klang. The island is easily accessible from the Port Klang jetty by ferry. You can either take KTM Komuter train (1.5 hour) or by car (45 mins) to reach the jetty. In Klang, you will take the high speed ferry to Pulau Ketam. Its only a half hour ride (12 nautical miles) away from the hustle and bustle of Port Klang.

We took the 11.00am ferry and arrived about 45 minutes time. We enjoyed the trip very much. This was how we started this wonderful trip, simple yet memorable day trip when almost everyone of us managed to agree to go this place.


Perhentian Island – Flora Bay Resort


Perhentian Island is an equal popular island to Redang Island. I’m officially completed 3 islands namely Redang, Lang Tengah and Perhentian in Terengganu.

Perhentian Island

29 April 2009

My longest awaiting trip; approximately 8 months. Due to Zero Fare promotion by AirAsia last year some more…ngam ngam hou!

I’m seeing myself hook up with island vacation every year.

Initially, I has chosen Rawa and Susu Dara package, but later been told to change to Redang and Lang Tengah. So, the final chosen package is 3 Days 2 Nights Perhentian, Redang & Lang Tengah Trip, Flora Bay Resort, Pulau Perhentian Besar.
