Beach Resort at Redang
A simply great place to go for a short trip overseas. The best time to go will be mid April where weather is good and crowd is little. Redang is one of the few untainted (comparatively) beach area in the region.
We stayed in Laguna Redang Beach Resort. It's the resort that took over the wooden chalet in the movie 夏日摸摸茶 by Sammi Cheng and Someone (I forgot)
3 days and 2 nights are sufficient for a normal snorkeling/sun-tanning trip. You can opt to extend (if available) if you are learning diving there. Snorkeling equipments are going for RM25 for the 3 days we went there with complimentary trips to beyond Redang beach for snorkel.
One of the places we went to was the Marine Center for the marine life and corals. One of the rules however, is to refrain from bringing any coral/animals/etc back from the Marine Center. This is one of the rules to prevent corrosion of the marine life there.
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner were international buffet. The amount of food was so great, there was no need to fight ;D
Besides snorkeling and diving, one can also go for walks on the beach, beach volley-ing, swim in the pool, canoe and pubbing. Other facilities include KTV/Disco and Internet room (was RM10 per hr)
The only negative part of the trip was in the transportation. For us was a 5 hrs trip to KL then 45 mins of plane to Trengganu then 1 hr trip by bus from Trengganu to Jetty and another 1 hr or so to reach Redang. There are other alternatives like a 7hr trip by bus from Singapore to the jetty.
