Redang Island in Photos

Redang Island, a long 12 hours bus ride away from Singapore, was this little get-away island perfect for lazing out your weekend away. Be warned however, there isn’t much in terms of things to see and or do. But I was glad to at least note that the claims of over-tourism well exaggerated. The crowd was there for sure, but it was not hard at all to find my own peace and quiet whenever I want to.

    My husband thinks he doesn’t want to go to Asia – I think I’ll use your photos to change his mind!

    Looks like a beautiful place. My travel list just keeps getting longer and longer!

    Thanks for the comments all!

    @Gennaro: this place is actually in Malaysia, sorry I didn’t specify that. Singapore is so small you only need around 2-3 hours at most to go from end to end! 😛

    @Peace: the water is turquoise and it was crystal clear as well! You can rent snorkeling equipments and enjoy being with the fishes not far from shore

    @Mara: you’re welcome to use the rest of the site as well 😉

    Ha! Also sorry I missed it in Malaysia. Thought it said 2 hour-ride.

    Idyllic. Just what I need right now, Nik! We’re talking about a trip to Singapore in a few months, might have to add this to our travel plans. :-)
