It is the largest of a small archipelago and is just 20 km long and 11 km wide, Tioman contains within it a dozen villages most reachable only by boat. This can certainly give a sense of how much is still preserved naturally by the inhabitants themselves. For lovers of nature and still wild places to discover and explore, this island is definitely the perfect place for a holiday between nature and adventure.
