If you're looking for a short getaway from the hustle & bustle of the city, yet easy to plan and affordable, try Kapas Island.
If you're sick of how commercialized Bali & Phuket is... walking along the beach and you have 1 million men & women & confused humans touching you & trying to sell you stuff... try Kapas Island.
It's just a 1 hour flight from KL to Kuala Terrenganu. From there you will need to hire a driver to ferry you down to Marang Jetty and from there, hire a boat man to take you out to the island. It's only about a 30-45mins boat ride so if you get sea sick from this, you're a fucking sissy.
There are a couple of resorts on Kapas Island. I've not seen all of them but based on the 3 ive seen - they all have their own unique expressions.
I actually put up in a resort called "Qimi". Some of the girls complained about the lack of facilities & the dirty toilets but i actually grew fond of the place, not because of the dirty toilets, but how much it resonates with mother nature.
There were no tar roads, hardly any steal, no aircon in the room, most of the challets were built from hand krafts and not manufactured goods. Mother nature. Pure bliss.
This is the challet i stayed in.
Playin with sand with Arston's kids.
Another picture............ not updating my blog for a mth has taken its toll on me (you loose your cock & bull story to describe every picture)
This challet is also comin up and i heard they're gonna put a jacuzzi in it.... sounds very manufactured but, at least they're hidin it inside some giant pebbles they've stolen from the beach.
Every meal is covered when you rent a challet. And every meal, they set up tables on the beach, laced with flower petals and such.... so you have your meals to the sight of a seashore & to the breeze of the sea....
Only took a picture of the food 75% through it but they serve a variation of food... from local grilled fish to pasta & sausages.
