ok, i am one of those snobs that dont like to go 邻国 for holidays, preferring the likes of 1st world countries like 日本.
however, since it's been a loooong time since i had my last holiday (read : aug 2006) and stranded with a cursed job (read : more shit comes when old shit is cleared), i took up friends' offer to join them over national day weekend to visit pulau redang.
other than the treacherous long overnight coach journey, redang is one beach resort island that you wont be able to do anything there, but relax!
the breeze, the beach, the coconut trees, the hammock.
see pictures for evidence ^-^
got video also...
even though it is becoming more and more commercialized like tioman, i was pleasantly surprised that things there are so much cheaper. perhaps it's bcos redang is in the state of terengganu. people are simplier and friendly, with an almost kampong-like innocence.
for a price of RM329 for 3 days 2 nights stay including meals, snorkelling trips over 2 days, it is awarded **** by ksn =-=
