Hello out there,
Anyone ever done an island hopping trip through the Riau Islands off peninsular Malaysia
, and over to Kuching in Sabah?
Looks like it might be pretty easy during the SW monsoon. I'm thinking of starting in Mersing on the mainland and hitting Tioman, Jemaga, Siantan, Riau, then SE to Subi Besar and Kuching.
Except for Tioman, these islands are Indonesian. Wondering if there is any way to check in to them, or if anyone might care or even know I was there. Could simply anchor
off the beach.
Anyone ever done this and have first hand info on this stuff and possibly on tides, currents, dangers along the way? China
sea is pretty shallow and narrow there, so that may be a concern.
Thanks to all,
