Travel Tips to Islands in Malaysia

Before you travel to the Island, few things you must remember to consider to bring along:-
  • Sunblock lotion- this is important to avoid sunburn. At the island the sun rays is extreme. The sunblock with SPF45 should be a good choice. If you plan to snorkeling, you need the one with water resistance for few hours. Make sure you use the sunblock on your uncovered back of your body. This is because when you snorkel, your back of your body will be hit by the sun rays directly.
  • Bring your own snorkeling gears if you wish to snorkel. Island hotels may provides snorkeling gears, not for free, you need to pay the rent. The gears also already been used by many people before. I don't know about you, but for me sharing the snorkel with someone that we don't know is "Yucks!"
