Pulau Rawa, Mersing, Johor

First and foremost, what an amazing trip. Probably one of the most beautiful islands I have ever been. At least within Malaysia. Fortunately the weather forecast was inaccurate when it said it would be raining on Sunday but it wasn’t! Sunny all the way till we all burnt our skin.

Drove from KL via North South Highway south bound at 3.30 in the morning. Exited Ayer Hitam and continued to Mersing via Kluang. It was a smooth journey but the road was very dark at night and jalan dia macam jalan balik Kelantan dulu dulu (for those yang tahu lah). From Ayer Hitam, it took me 1 hour 45 minutes to get to Mersing Jetty. Overall the journey took 3 and a half hours from KL to Mersing Jetty. I have to start driving at 3.30 in the morning because I wanted to catch the earliest boat to Pulau Rawa, 9.00am. So basically sampai tu mesti lah nak solat Subuh dulu, parking kereta (RM 18 per night) then breakfast. Just nice lah nak pergi toilet ke, freshen up ke. Tak kalut. Unless you plan to stay a night in Mersing then even better tak payah nak rush.

Boat from jetty to Pulau Rawa took 30 minutes. I think the service was superb. Makanan pun best giler. Suitable for all tak kira tua muda, single or family dengan anak anak. I also think the resort is probably a little bit more expensive than other islands because it is a private island. So, sesape yang nak kan ketenangan, melayan jiwa karat yang lara, aku hidup dalam blues, sangat sesuai. Kalau tengok water slides dia memang tak nak kalah. Best nak mampos. Aku naik more than 20 times sampai sakit badan. Tip dia kena bukak baju baru licin naik slide!
