佛山小刚Pompom Island translates to Bang Bang Island in Chinese. It is located in the eastern part of Sabah, Malaysia. There is Sipadan Island, a world-famous diving center nearby. Tourists are not allowed to stay on Sipadan Island, and the number of people on the island is limited every day, even if it is the surrounding motor The number of people who can receive accommodation on the island of Kinkapalaibang is also limited every day. Take Bang Bang Island as an example. There are two resorts on the island, the Pom Pom Island Bang Bang Island Resort we booked and another celebes beach resort Celebes Resort. The conditions of Celebes Resort are relatively ordinary. The housing is the same as the ordinary bungalow suites on the seaside in Guangdong. The bungalows are about 17 or 8 square meters, with two beds and a small TV. The food is three or four meats per meal. , Vegetables, fruits, fresh water is not well filtered, drinking water and washing water have a slight salty taste. The places where tourists live on Bang Bang Island are divided into three types of rooms. Water house, beach house and garden house, the price of each room type is different, here is a brief introduction to the charging methods of nearby island resorts. There are five well-known islands developed near Semporna, Sipadan, Madang, Bangbang, Kapalai and Mabul. Among them, Sipadan Island is a world diving mecca. The number of people on the island is restricted every day, and tourists are not allowed to spend the night on the island. Among the other four islands, Madajon has no water houses, all built on land; Kapalai is a complete water house, currently there are 51; Bang Bang Island Resort has 5 water houses and several beach houses As well as the garden house, there is also a Celebes Resort on Bang Bang Island, the specific number of rooms is not clear; Mabul Island is more complicated, there are many resorts, there are beautiful and luxurious water houses, and some are very general At the same time, there are still some areas of the island inhabited by refugees and indigenous people from the Philippines. Those slightly better resorts are charged per person, with an average of 600-1500 per person per day, 50% off for children under 12 years old, 50% of the room rate for single occupancy, and a family of three adults. 95%. Let’s compare the charges for the lowest room type 3 days and 2 nights (non-diving, only snorkeling) in the Taobao shops where the room is booked this time as an example (quote: RMB), Maada is 3380, card Palai (Water House) 3280, Bang Bang Resort 3480, Celebes Resort 1860, Mabul Island (SWV Resort, Mabul Island Too Many Resort) 3180. The above charges are quoted from April 2014 to 15 March. Compared with the previous quotation, the price of Bangbang Island Resort has increased the most. Originally, the garden house I ordered was only 2,980 yuan for three days and two nights. Now the price has increased to 3480 yuan....... The following is Bangbang Island Resort. The charges for the three types of rooms in the resort (three days and two nights snorkeling package, quoted from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015), the water house is 4280, the beach house is 3780, and the garden house is 3480. I personally think that if you go to Bang Bang Island Resort, choosing a garden house is very cost-effective. This time we are assigned to Garden House No. 1 and 2. Among them, Garden House No. 1 where I live is only from No. 16 Beach House. It’s about 20 meters away, and it’s only 30-40 meters away from the beach. The No. 8 Garden House at the far end is only about 150 meters away from the beach...

子弹之痕迹Of course, this is a great place to brew a relationship for couples on honeymoon trips. The nearby seas are coral reefs, and the bright waters provide a glimpse of colorful tropical fish swimming between them. The island is surrounded by silvery beaches, and the coral reef-filled waters refract with sunlight, changing fantastic colors. If you go to the island, you must snorkel, colorful tropical fish are available. But be aware that snorkeling equipment is best taken with you (or purchased on the island of Saipan).

Semporna
Semporna Semporna is a typical tropical climate, hot all year round, but it will be a bit cooler at night. It sees more rainfall throughout the year than other parts of Malaysia. But the rainy season is very short and only lasts from November to January. Every year from May to September, it is the best season for turtle watching. Don’t miss it if the time is right. There are buses from Kota Kinabalu to Tawau, but it is a bumpy and uncomfortable 10 hour journey.

Semporna
The people traveling to Semporna only go there for diving. Sipadan Island, not far from Semporna, is a mecca for the divers. But it is more suitable for divers with rich experience; beginners can dive at other islands. The nearest airport to Semporna is Tawau International Airport. Kuala Lumpur and Yapi have direct flights to Tawau International Airport, so you can reach this airport first and then charter a car to Semporna.

Semporna Travel Tips

About Semporna

Semporna, on the southeastern coast of the state of Sabah in Malaysia, is a county in the Tawau District. Semporna means “perfect” in Malay. Mabul Island, an offshore island, is one of Sabah’s best-known tourist destinations. Thanks to its optimal terrain, the area is never affected by typhoons or earthquakes. The waters here are as still and exquisite as in the Garden of Eden. The pine-green sea water is so clear you can see through to the bottom. Sipadan, widely renowned as a heaven for scuba divers, draws diving enthusiasts to pilgrimage here from all over the world.
