Today, RatuJalan ingin (wah..skema! xtahan.haha).. berkongsi about Manukan Island. Manukan Island ni actually lies in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park (TARP). In TARP, ada 5 islands; Manukan, Mamutik, Gaya, Sapi and Sulug. Since I only went to Manukan Island (3times! because the island is awesome and near to KK), so this post is more about manukan lah ea...I will slip information about other islands too..
|Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park|
To go this 5 islands, we have to take boat at Jesselton Point (the jetty). In the jetty, there will be many travel agents, offering many different package. For average people like me, I will go to the cheapest package (same with the mabul case..heee..)..I dont know how to tell in long story pasal nie, so I jump to the tips teruslah.
Tips and Info::
1. Buy return ticket (any islands u want to go) dekat kaunter paling close dengan toilet. That counter the cheapest. Jetty-Manukan only Rm15.
2. Better rent snorkeling equipment (if u dont dive, u snokeling! COMPULSORY!!!! the underwater is SUBHANALLAH) dekat kaunter ni terus. Sebab kat island nanti,lagi mahal!!
3.Bring own food, KFC,McD,Sandwiches,Nasi Bungkus ka..hehe..sebab makanan kat Island,mahal!! Ice cream bodo-bodo ja pun almost rm5!
4.Bring Camera (hehe..ni u all pon almaklum kot!!!!)
5.If u go Manukan, port snorkeling yang best dekat pondok life guard! Its far from the manukan jetty, but the underwater at this port is the most beautiful..the coral!! tempat lain pun cantik, too many beautifull fishes..tp at this port,u can see many coral!!! ;)
6.Please go early,many people want to go this place..so u can enjoy there and be back at city at evening!
Ok,Bayaran-bayaran yang perlu di sediakan:
1.Return boat ticket (depends on how many island u go..if manukan, Rm15)
2.Snorkeling Equipment (Goggle + Life Jacket) = Rm15
3.Jetty Tax = Rm6 (adult), Rm3(Child)
4.TARP entrance fee = Rm3 (Adult), Rm1 (Child)
If u afraid to do snorkeling/dive, you can do scooba-doo. Its a scooter riding underwater! Its so fun!!
|The fishes. RJ ambik kat google, since I dnt have many pictures of this fishes.|

So, RJ hopes this post can help u to come here!!! For those coming from outside Sabah, you can rent any hotel in KK city and still easy to get to Jesselton Point. :)
