Estimated prices, 2003
Favorite thing: I have just put this few lines here to help you with the prices that can be expected at Pulau Perhentian (to be precise, Kecil, Long Beach).
slow boat to Kecil: 20 RM
speed boad: 30 RM
Mata Hari chalets: noisy room for two 50 RM (w/ fan and bathroom), a bit greater room 75 RM (w/fan and bathroom)
other chalets: no big difference, 4* aircon 120-150 RM
breakfast: 3-5 RM
main dishes: 5-7 RM, BBQ specials (barracuda, shark, tuna, etc) 10 RM
beer: 7 RM
diving course: 600-650 RM (PADI open water)
renting of snorkelling equipment: 10 RM (5 RM w/o fin)
snorkelling trip to 5 spots (turtles, sharks, etc): 30 RM, incl. equipment
Fondest memory: - snorkelling and/or diving is an absolute *must*, however long beach itself is a white sandy beach providing you with other entertainment opportunities only :)
- try BBQ of barracuda, I was really surprised by the exceptionally good taste of it
- some lazy days around Kecil is simply perfect :)
- Budget Travel
Submerged Mountain Climbing
Favorite thing: The neutral bouyancy of the underwater world does make scaling those (underwater) peaks somewhat less challenging... (though equally scenic...)
- Road Trip
Check Six (Watch yer Back)
Favorite thing: It would appear to the casual observer that that big green moray is about to make a tasty treat out of one of those clown fish...
Not sure if clown fish are regular items on his menu or not...
