#Location : Pulau Besar, Melaka, Malaysia.
Pulau Besar a small island that 5km away from Melaka, Malaysia. The reason why I liked to stay around Mekela was because it has many historic sites including an awesome museum. Though I loved hang out in the town, it was too touristy. So a little getaway would be a good idea. I was with Jenny, we met in Singapore and shared the worst hangover night together, and I tagged along with her plan for the day to Pulau Besar.
It is very easy to reach by a ferry boat. There are few resorts inside of this island. You can stay here for jungle walk and beach holiday for few days. Pulau Besar also has few historic area of WWII but the main reason for the visit is for beach. We were there for half a day. It’s a easy one day getaway from Melaka city central.
This photo is actually would be one of the scene from the movie ‘The Beach’. It’s number one recommended book for South East Asia traveler especially for Thailand. Clair, a friend I met in Jeju island told me about this book and that she has been there. I started read this book and this is probably what would the fishing group looks like, I thought. I will find out when I watch the movie. I haven’t seen it yet. It’s waiting for the right time to be watched.
Pulau Besar is easily reachable with a short jetty ride. About two hours.
Loved the white sand beach. Pulau Besar is famous for this white sand beach.
We bought these sarongs at a local market. This became my travel companion ever since. I bring it everywhere. It is a dress, a blanket, a scarf, a skirt, a beach towel and sometimes an actual towel. And you know, it’s pretty!
Can’t leave out the palm trees in a tropical island.
