Afraid to answer to this question will be difficult because it's depends on the choice of transport and accommodation. We tried to choose the conditions in which it is possible to live with children. The only thing I can say that for us this journey has cost more than in Thailand (Samui) percent of 25%. Both trips we were preparing ourselves, without any agencies. Here is a web site for example Bergii choose in the drop-down window Berjaya Tioman and see the prices. In addition, there are on several Tymanski hotels. Take a look and choose. by the way, on the website of Melina was the price of the excursion set. You can calculate yourself.
I think if we were only with my husband, we would be more mobile and frequently changed place of residence :-) If you read the article, it says that the island is small and most of the hotels are fenced off from each other or the sea or the jungle. And it's true. To get to the neighboring hotels are not so easy, need to order a water taxi. And 1 hotel and all its surroundings can be explored in 3-4 days maximum. Then boring. by the way, we also visited Melaka. I recommend 2 days to go and at least half a day to dedicate them to the zoo :-) ...

I fully agree with Guzalya. To tell something concrete it is difficult, and all depends on your needs. There are people who are in tents and living on Tioman island, or in dormitories with shared bedroom for $ 5 (there are such). Plus how active you plan to include in the plan of excursions, diving, snorkeling and all that. In General the island is quite expensive, as Malaysia as a whole (compared to Ty). ...

I think we all lived in the two most expensive hotels of the island :) More cheap you need to book well in advance, so as to Tioman like to drive themselves to Malaysians and especially a lot of people from Singapore. In our neighboring village of Paya, which we passed through the jungle was a very nice hotel full of people of Asian appearance, presumably Singaporeans and Chinese. Chinese restaurant food seemed delicious, probably after that, which we are regaled in möhlin. And prepare it, apparently by the Chinese. In möhlin the cook was an Indian appearance and was preparing it to be honest not very tasty. Although Indian dishes she was good, everything else tastes again gave Indian spices (mild) and it was too bland for us. Although maybe she was trying to adapt its food under the Europeans, who mostly lived in this hotel. In Bergie was cooked very well and large portions, so that at the end my husband started to order and a children's menu or one dish for two :-)
Generally, if you talk about food in the whole of Malaysia, they have their meals one-two and obchelsya, all fried with rice. Someone seems to have wrote. Often we come across Chinese, Thai and Indian food, and of course American fast food chains. And Thai an order of magnitude worse than in Thailand itself.
Oh, and about Tioman - there is no fruit, all imported, so quite expensive. We had to drink mainly fruit juice (delicious) and we bought them or to Paya or Tekek. In hotels all several times more expensive.
In General, Tioman island has a lot of divers is one of their favorite Islands. Here underwater views of neighboring small Islands, really ...

And yet, about money. The money they need to have cash only, and only in ringgit. From hotels only Berae you can pay by card. ...

And tell us about the sights. What is there to see? I usually always aimed at the inspection of something interesting away from the beaches, and in places like Tioman island, on the Islands, never been there.
Thank you. ...

If by sights you mean the historic building, as far as I know they are not there at all. Tioman is a small island, and as I wrote -a marine reserve and go there mainly because of the sea, scuba diving and wildlife. Read again the article on Tioman island on this website, everything is written correctly :-) ...

Here just got back from Tioman. What can I say, feelings were mixed. On the one hand the beautiful nature, clean sea. On the other hand, not clean and some is not a good attitude of Malaysians to the island. We lived on Danube (it's between the AVS and Monkey Bay), all vrodeby good: the beach and the food, almost no people... but that's just depart from the hotel at 20 meters there is the mountain of garbage (plastic bottles, old washing machine...) and immediately something not nice. There are no pictures warana walking on the beach, so the shot did not hit the bottle or other debris ((( A village of AVS is generally a gloom ...

And what about the sea tell me? Especially about the underwater part? ...
admin 2 October, 2012

July is a guest (not registered user), it may not return to answer. Review about Tioman here can read, there exhaustively, I think. ...
Eugene 2 October, 2012

Unfortunately, about the underwater part just not very exhaustively, and me diving and interested. Well, not all are there dive instructor morons, I hope at least that not all... :D :?: ...
