Johor Trip Tweeeee | Sibu Island Resort

~Beep Beep Beep~
Third & Final Location

In my last Part 2 of the Johor Trip, I said that we had to rush from another resort till we can't find a gas station due to the deserted road that the google map told me to use. It was the first time we freaked out as the one and only ferry from Tanjung Leman leaves at 10.30am and we estimated the timing wrongly thinking that everything will be a smooth ride! Lols. Thank God we made it in the end.

We took a 30 minute ride ferry to Sibu Island Resort. Please don't stay in the ferry, get out and get some wind blowing on your face! It was such a wonderful ride, the view was stunning plus the ocean was looking beautifully blue. All the pictures below did not go through any editing process!




The darker blue shows that it is deep while the lighter blue, usually nearer to the beach are more shallow. In anyway, it's so clean and oh, you will just loveeeeeee it!
Once you get to the island, everything is sooooo green! You are really out and be one with the nature!! It's so fun because they literally let deer, chickens, peacocks and whatever animals they have there, to run around the place! :D You get to see them up close, and well of course, smell them toooo. HAHA.






Oh by the way, they have a special original welcome song, The rhythm totally got stuck in our heads for the rest of the trip. The funniest part is that while we hum to the tune, we dance the Hawaiian dance too!

Because the island is rather big, for the room tours we needed to sit in this specially modified kancil to get around. Is not for the guest, is more for the staff to get around to do their job such as house cleaning, bringing the bag to your room and bringing it back to the boat when you are leaving...























Sibu Island Resort specializes in Team Building and so far of all the team building places, this is the most 'power' place as they have the 'awesomest' tall structures for you to climb and fly fox down! Though, I think you need at least 12 people for the programme. So, my friend and I only did flying fox for the first time in our life!






















Part of their activity is also to Feed the Deer! :D Well, no, we didn't had the time to feed them as they only allocated specific timing for this.



It is because we were busy jumping into the deep blue sea!!!



and well, only us daringly swimming in the water while the other group of korean newly wed couple were busy fishing Sotong (squid) !


The next day, we had the opportunity for jungle tracking. The whole purpose is to not only for the chance to experience the view from a higher ground but also to search for the 4th beach in Sibu Island Resort!


That's Pulau Kapas (Cotton Island)

Of course, such princess like us can too make it till the end! Mission Accomplished! It is just unfortunate to find so much dead corals.... :(







After these 6 days, I really have gotten to fall in love with Johor. As much as they still have a huge area to be developed, I can say they are slowly getting there. Their town is really growing fast but still, able to give the locals some time to unwind by the beach. 

I really enjoyed my trip, and all made possible by Jolyn New!
