    Fishing Village - Pulau Perhentian Kecil

    A majority of the local islanders lead a simple life as fishermens and live at the only fishing village located on Perhentian Kecil.

    The fishing village is located on the other side of Perhentian Kecil from Long Beach. In fact, you will pass by the village during your boat ride to Long Beach.

    They are very friendly people and are always willing to help.

    If you decided to stop by the village, try to avoid wearing just your bikinis or bathing suits.

    Being a muslim community, the boatmen will usually advise you to put on a pareo or shorts when going to the village as a show of respect.

    Drinking beer is forbidden in Perhentian Island

    by Pancake_my Written Mar 11, 2004

    Terengganu state is rulled by muslim party. But you can still get beer very easily. Everybody doing business in this tourist island in fact has to be adapted to what people want. The chalet I stayed, Moonlight was been warned by their boss not to sell any more beer to tourists ... thats what I had been told from one of the staffs. You can ask for beer but if you don't get one ... please be more tolerate then.

    All the restaurants and guesthouses have a policy saying "we're muslims - so we don't drink alcohol - so we don't sell alcohol..."
    Hypocrits!!! You can buy beers, vodka etc. many places and drink it everywhere... But they charge you! MYR 8 for a can of beer! That's quite a lot
