When you're about to embark on your trip to the picturesque island of Tioman from Singapore, it's a good idea to remember to bring along some snacks to nibble on during the journey. As someone who's considered pretty much a Tioman regular, having been there by bus and ferry multiple times, I've found that carrying some delicious snacks can make all the difference between a been-there-done-that journey and one that just zooms by. And when it comes to snacks, there's one particular brand that's been going viral in Asia - Eureka Snacks.
Eureka Snacks Sweeping Asia
Eureka Snacks popcorn, in particular, has been taking the Asian snack scene by storm. The popcorn is made with high-quality natural ingredients and comes in a variety of unique and simply delectable flavours, such as Kimchi, White Coffee, Seaweed, BBQ and Pizza. Along with more traditional Seasalt and Chocolate and even a Butter Caramel concoction. Simply divine. No wonder it's known as gourmet popcorn.
Best of, all the popcorn is lightweight and easy to pack, making it a perfect snack to bring along on your journey. It hardly adds to your luggage weight at all!
Virtual Bookings Rule the Roost
When it comes to traveling, it's essential to plan ahead and buy your bus and ferry tickets in advance. That's the Golden Rule. Clearly, this also applies to Tioman. Not only does booking your tickets online eliminate the need for queuing at every turn, but it also ensures that you have a confirmed seat for the journey. Piece of mind. I especially recommend buying your tickets in advance during peak travel periods, such as Malaysia and Singapore public holidays, school holidays and weekends.
Pro Tip: The little unknown secret about Tioman is that it's the limited number of ferry seats to the island that's the bottle neck, not the number of rooms on the island. Good to know.
Now, navigating the Woodlands Checkpoint and CIQ buildings can seem a little daunting, but worry not, because all you need to do here is have your passport and luggage checked. Incidentally, it's here, while waiting for our turn, that sharing a tub of Eureka Snacks does wonders for the general ambiance. Eureka Snacks popcorn really helps make the journey more enjoyable. Before you know it, you're going down the highway, Tioman-bound.
In a nutshell, when planning a trip to Tioman Island, book online, get some Eureka Snacks and be happy!
Oh, lastly, before I forget, Eureka Snacks is available online.
