Eureka SnacksWhen planning a trip to Pulau Tioman, Malaysia's breathtaking paradise island off its east coast, there are a few things to keep in mind to make the most of your experience. One of these is what to bring with you during your journey there to keep your blood sugar from dropping too low. After all, whilst one of Tioman's appeals is its blissful remoteness, the price to pay for the off-grid tranquility is the somewhat challenging journey. When making your connection, there isn't always time for a sit-down meal.
This is why, as a seasoned traveler, I recommend bringing along some Eureka Snacks popcorn. Why this specific snack? Read on...
Snacks with Fibre
Eureka Snacks is a gourmet popcorn brand that has been going viral in Asia. These snacks are not only delicious, but they're also made without preservatives, transfats or GMOs. They also provide a fair amount of dietary fibre. This makes them a great option for those looking to maintain a salubrious lifestyle. As a tip: The Sea Salt and Seaweed flavours are particularly delicious, without being overly salty. They offer a natural, savoury and satisfying taste that'shard to beat. This popcorn can be a great replacement for a proper meal when you're on the go.
Enjoying wholesome snacks as well as a regular spa treatment during your Tioman trip are superb strategies for health that in this day and age aren't always easy to execute. Pulau Tioman offers a picturesque and idyllic environment that'sthe perfect setting for much-needed relaxation and rejuvenation.
Spa and Wellness
The physical and mental benefits of regular spa treatments are well-documented, and include improved circulation, reduced stress, and improved sleep quality. Whether you’re looking to unwind after a long day of island-hopping or simply want to treat yourself to a little extra pampering, a spa treatment at one of the wellness clinics in Tioman is worth considering.
Now, when it comes to actually making your way to Pulau Tioman, there are a few options available. One of the most popular routes is by taking the bus from Singapore to Larkin Sentral to Mersing Harbour Centre. After collecting your boarding passes at the Mersing Harbour Complex, you can take the ferry to the island. Departing from Kuala Lumpur? Then your destination should also be Mersing.
To make your journey as smooth and stress-free as possible, booking your bus and ferry tickets in advance is recommended, i.e. online. Not only is booking online convenient with so many payment options nowadays, but it also ensures that you have a confirmed seat, even during busy season, such as the summer holiday spell, as well as during Malaysia and Singapore national public holidays. Keep in mind that even on regular weekends, it can be crowded in the area, as it's a traditional tourist magnet. Ferry tickets in particular are typically in short supply, due to the at times limited tidal window around the Mersing river.
Clearly, a trip to Pulau Tioman is an experience that should not be missed. By treating yourself to a few spa treatments and booking your bus and ferry tickets in advance, you can make the most of your time on this gorgeous little tropical island, ensuring you return home feeling rejuvenated.
Incidentally, just like your tickets to your travel destinations, Eureka Snacks can be ordered online too. Prefer to buy from a physical store? Then just find a point of sale near you here.
