There is this conservation charge of 5 Malaysia Ringgit per person you need to pay at the Mersing ferry terminal before boarding the speed boat to Tioman island. The counter is next to the ferry terminal. There will be people approaching you to pay at the counter. In return, you will get a ticket. Please retain that for inspection.
The money collected will be used to support their heritage programmes such as coral research activities, beach cum underwater clean up, mooring cum marker buoys, building cum maintaining the Marine Park Centre and public facilities.
Kampung Genting has its own mini mart which sells drinks, snacks and beer! You should not lose touch of the city life here.
Well, if you do not understand Malay, just smile and tell them that you do not understand and they will try their best to communicate with you with their 'broken' English.
