If you're planning to visit Tioman Island soon, please double check with your travel agent. On Saturday, the ferry with 106 people was on its way to Pulau Tioman when it caught fire. Four people died and three are still missing.
As a result, the ferry's operator, Seagull Express and Accommodation Sdn Bhd (Seagull), has been directed to stop operations pending investigations.
There will be delay and not enough ferry available. Please ensure you have ample time for travelling especially flight time.
