Swimming with turtles for RM40

So I recently went to Redang Island with Audrey & Lorcan when they visited Malaysia. It has been 5 years since I went there, and it was a great opportunity to go back. We packed our bags and took the weekend off.

Transport We took Malindo Air from Subang Airport (RM137 per person) as it was much nearer compared to KLIA, and cheaper in fact. All you have to be comfortable with is sitting on an ATR Turboprop plane. As we arrived at Kuala Terengganu, we got an uber (RM10) to the Shahbandar Jetty.

Hotel We stayed at Redang Reef Resort, which is located next to Laguna Beach Resort (The more atas resort there). Honestly it’s a steal if you book this resort, as we payed RM406 per person, inclusive of boat transfers from Shahbandar Jetty, 4 meals per day & 3 Snorkelling Trips.

The Resort is located at the far end of the beach, and it has a nice deck overlooking the beach. The rooms are clean, comfortable equipped with air conditioning, water heating, etc.
