Planning to go to Perhentian this summer. Perhentian is often compared to Redang where the latter is preferred by most. One reason is it is nearer to the airport compared to Perhentian. I've been to Redang and fell in love with it. Anyone who has actually been to these 2 islands before and can comment on his/her preference?

As I've said I've been to Redang but I don't mind going back; I just want to try Perhentian. Read a lot of raves for Bubu resort, so that's where we are planning to stay. Just in case it'll be Redang in the end, we'll go back to Laguna Redang.

Appreciate any inputs and tips, thanks! :)

Hi bro, thanks for the recommendation. Where did you stay? I've read reviews from tripadvisor, it seems the best resort there is D'coconut Lagoon. Since you mentioned about island hopping, we'd probably do that. So regardless of where we are staying, we can just charter a boat to these islands (hope its not expensive! :sweatsm:). Thanks a lot!

you can be on either island and still enjoy. been to both, preferred lang tengah and perhentian over redang (redang has bigger resorts).

as mentioned, i suppose island hopping would be your next bet to enjoying what's there to be offered in the surrounding island. both redang and perhentian share some common attraction for snorkeling and "place to go as well".

Hi, I have not been to Lang Tengah.
I stayed at Perhentian Kecil long time ago - 2000. It should be cheaper staying there. Forgot the name of the guest house..
Done island hoping to Redang.
