Pulau Lang Tengah Travel Guide
Pulau Lang Tengah
The beach in front of Lang Sari Resort
somewhere near Lang Sari Resort
Free from the Hubbub of Everyday Life
Dying corals in the sea and dead corals by the beach
In a nutshell
Difficult to get to, but well worth it
This doesn't require a lot of energy and money too! I spent just sitting lazily in front of my room...quietly of course...and the next thing I saw were squirrels running up and down the trees around the area. Some were even brave enough to come closer.There's monitor lizards...
Castle with a beach view
If you have extra time, consider building a sand castle by the beach...it was fun for me and hubby challenging ourselves to build better looking castle...and of course the winner was me!!! This activity is definitely free, just pick any good location with a good view to...
Not satisfy with the beach in front of your resort or feeling like trying another beach? Go on a beach trekking then. Hubby and I did this once we got to Lang Tengah. Walking from Lang Sari to the very right of the island led us to this cove like area with a lot of...
Sitting lazily on the jetty while enjoying the view was good too. Of course you're not really encouraged to do this when the sun is scorching...wake up early and do this...you'll see crabs, jelly fish, colourful fishes and other underwater species int the water too. You can...
Tropical Restaurant: Simple but sweet and tasty
The restaurant is not open 24 hours. It's only open during breakfast, lunch and dinner when it accommodate meals for the resort's guests. Meals served here were always locals. Though simple...but most meals were quite tasty. This is not like the island where you'll found...
Quiet nights on island
Basically, during the night, the island is very much quiet except for the sounds of resort guests walking about the cafeteria and games area. At the games area, on weekends, guests would play Chinese "Mahjong" or some groups will be chatting away the night, making new...
One of the local told us that every night they can usually catch 2-3 falling stars in the sky.Too bad it was full moon when we were there so the sky was super bright and difficult to spot a falling star.
Kuala Lumpur to Pulau Lang Tengah
- Fly from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Trengganu on Malaysia Airlines or Air Asia (1 hour). Take the first flight in the morning to mazimise your day- Arrange with resort for land transfer from airport to Merang jetty (45 min)- Resort ferry will be waiting at jetty to go to island...
Get off at Kuala Terengganu
Buses will stop at the Kuala Terengganu Bus Station. I'm not so sure exactly where it's located, but one thing for sure it's definitely somewhere in Kuala Terengganu. Here, you will find other buses and taxis which will take you to Merang Jetty. It's about 40-45 min drive to...
getting to Merang Jetty
Merang Jetty (Jeti Merang in Malay) is where you take a boat to Lang Tengah or Redang Island. The jetty which is situated in the district of Setiu is about 39 km from Kuala Terengganu. Getting here by car is much faster...about 40 - 45 min...bus ride is much cheaper but will...
Bumpy boat ride
For boat rides to Lang Tengah, the easiest and safest would be by making the bookings with your resort. There are only four resorts on the island, and all have got their own boats to ferry their guests. I'm also quite certain that most holiday packages offered will include a...
Comfy bus ride to Kuala Terengganu
To get to Lang Tengah Island, you need to take the boat from the Merang Jetty. Merang Jetty is just about 30-40 min drive from Kuala Terengganu.To save up time, we decided to travel at night via bus to Kuala Terengganu. I used to travel with the same bus company during a...
last minute shopping @ Merang Jetty
Here at Jetty Merang, you'll found several wooden shops selling swim wear, hats of various colours, pareo, slippers and souvenirs like key chain, fridge magnet, t-shirts and etc.If you're looking for souvenirs with Lang Tengah written on it...that can be a bit difficult...
Redang Lang Souvenir Shop: The only shop I found here
It's the only shop on the island...well, that's according to the people here. After checking out all resorts...yeah...that's definitely the only one. It's a simple wooden shop located right inside Redang Lang Resort. From the beach, walk into the resort's compound...wash...
Be careful when you're walking barefoot
The white sandy beach is not really sandy all the way. Many parts of the beach are covered with dead corals/stones just like the photo. Walking barefoot along the beach is fun to do but be careful with what you're landing on. You'll found similar stones in the water too.
Although this island is relatively less commercialised than Pulau Redang, its sad to find that there are a lot of dead corals lying around even in the rather shallow areas. It would be good to either rent a pair of fins or have a pair of aqua shoes ready when going...
Bring backpack and big plastic bags to cover your backpack if you don't want it to get wet or dirty.
Swimsuit, Tshirts & shorts, sandals and a shawl. You can buy the shawl in the Merang jetty for RM15. Just wrap the shawl to your body if you are cold. That way you use less...
I'd suggest you bring backpack coz it's easier to carry around for transfer (for me Singapore - Larkin - KT - Merang - Resort), trust me you wouldn't want to carry hand luggages thru all that.
Bring your swimming/wet suit, for the rest (we rented mask, snorkel, fins and...
Trivial Trevally or Double Trouble..?
The divemasters asked us to stay away from the Trevally that occasionally check out new comers to their waters as they are territorial........ the malaysian say dont ' Play !Play!' ( Dont treat it trivial).
Giant Iguana or is it a Komodo?
There is a giant Iguana lurking around the slope next to the D.coconut resort..huge fella..wanted to take photo but I just had an urge to keep an eye on him as he was moving his head side to side...then he decided he had enough and crashed through the bushes. I have seen...
