          Are there flights to Tioman from Singapore? We have our sights set on travelling there next week but see that there are only charter flights and no commercial ones going there? Our last trip to Tioman was in 2011. At that time there was a commercial flight plying that route.

          Hello. My friend and I are booked to stay here in May and our initial excitement at staying here is waning by the day as I realise how difficult it is to get here. It seems we will spend all of our first day just getting here from KL. Can anyone give me a breakdown of how they go to Japamala and how much it cost. The flight and hotel transfers seem to be extortionate! Thanks in advance! :-)
