I just arrived in the Perhentian Islands around Long Beach. I took the night train from Chumphon to Songai Golok where I met Anya, a cool aussie girl that was going to the Perhentian as well. The trip was quite cool and managed to sleep well, so no regret at all. We teamed up in Kota Baru to share a taxi with 2 other people to Kuala Besut (RM24) and then took the slow ferry to the Perhentian Islands (RM40 2-way). I'm staying in a room in Rock Garden (basically a shithole) for 15RM. Internet here is expensive RM4/min so don't expect load of news before I'm in Singapore at the end of the month. FYI US$1 = RM3.8
