Chilling at the Perhentian islands

After experiencing the lovely urban chaos of Kuala Lumpur, these islands feels like a daytime dream. Epic palm trees and crystal clear water frames a picture so perfect it feels like it’s rendered by a computer. Every direction I look reminds me of a desktop wallpaper.

The two islands in the Perhentian used to be a crossroad for traders between Bangkok and Malaysia. As I’ve walked across the white coral sand beaches and looked across the turquoise blue sea, the pristine touch is ever evident. I’m glad that The Beach wasn’t filmed here. Despite a growing number of tourists the islands still feels relatively untouched. A part of this is probably the hassle of getting here. In total it took 4 different flights with several cab rides and boat trips to arrive on these shores, so hopefully it will take a very long time before the tsunami of mass transit comes to claim these islands and turn them into a Gran Canaria 2.0.
