..."This was my second trip overseas when it was plenty green behind my ears. It wasn't the best of trips as my group was fraught with infighting as we wanted different things individually. I have also yet to learn the art of accepting differences and developing the will and confidence to break away and pursue the things I want to do. I did not get to snorkel or dive as planned, deferring instead to the wishes of the majority who were there to vege out. It was a frustrating trip. Yet, in a subconscious way, this trip planted a seed for a love of the beach and the ocean, woke up an unknown dormant passion for travel and opened the door for future things to come"...

Disclaimer: The trip to Paya was in 1995 so things may have moved along since for Paya. Change is the only permanence.

    Decided to stay at Tioman's Melina Beach Resort; their beach penthouse seems good. Will report later! Olav

    Good information on the accomodation. Think I might stay at Tioman Paya Resort on my next trip.
