  • Admire and Explore the Beauty of Bidong Island
  • Visit the Village of the Vietnamese Boat People - ‘Little Saigon’
  • Embark on a Snorkelling Trip around Bidong Island and Karah Island

Tour Description:

Rise up bright and early as you will have a full day ahead of you; filled with an exciting adventure exploring the islands of Karah and Bidong. Your coach will pick you up at 8 am before departing for Merang Jetty. An hour later, we will be heading out to Bidong Island by speedboat. A short 45 minutes’ boat ride away, the island used to be a sanctuary for over 45,000 refugees—mostly Vietnamese Boat People who fled after the Communists rose to power. The late 70’s saw Cambodian refugees escaping to the island to escape from the Khmer Rouge regime. We will first tour the village left behind by the Vietnamese Boat People and then enjoy a scrumptious lunch by the beach.

Once you have had your fill of good food, it is time to venture out into open waters and snorkel to your heart’s content. We will head out by boat and snorkel in the waters around Bidong Island and later, Karah Island. Take this opportunity to delve into the marine world and observe dazzling corals, stunning fishes and an entirely alien ecosystem. Enjoy as much as you can before heading back to Kuala Terengganu at around 2.30 pm.
