Largest island of Malaysias east coast. It’s located 32km off the coast and is some 20km long and 12km wide and the highest peak is Gunung Kajang with 1038m. In the 70ies TIME magazine selected Tioman as one the world’s most beautiful islands but lost some flair in recent years due to do development. The island has eight main villages, many beaches and is densely forested and is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a scuba diving haven.

Below is the MRT line which connects this part of town with downtown Kuala Lumpur and beyond. Opposite you see a typical highrise condominium block (probably built sometime around 2010), like hundreds of others mushrooming throughout the Klang Valley. The green patches here are not public parks but a golf course. To left of the condo you can see 1Utama shopping mall in the distance.
