Taxi and bus to Mersing
In terms of sheer numbers, probably most travelers take the bus to Mersing. After all, it's pretty convenient and quite easy on the wallet. However, if you have the budget and you prefer to travel in privacy and some additional comfort, then you may want to take a taxi to Mersing instead.
Come and get it
Mersing Harbour Centre is more than just a tourism information/reservation complex. The brand new building also houses a number of retail shops, pushcarts and kiosks, providing a considerable variety of items.
From Tioman-related souvenirs and traditional Malay snacks, to 11th-hour errands like sun-block, mosquito cream or mineral water. There are even a few apparel outlets for a last-minute retail therapy session. Whatever your needs, Mersing Harbour Centre has it - in spades.
Mersing Harbour Centre also has a very spacious food and beverage section that offers scrumptious, yet affordable meals, both Asian delights and tasty western-style dishes.
With the official opening of the Mersing Harbour Centre, the Sultan of Johor has well and truly ushered Mersing into the future. This applies particularly in view of Johor State Government's strategy to not only transform Mersing into a premier tourist destination, but also to boost its role as the de facto gateway to the area's flagship, Pulau Tioman and the equally breathtaking islands Pulau Aur, Tinggi, Pemanggil, Besar, Rawa and Sibu, collectively known as the Sultan Iskandar Marine Park islands.
What's more, Mersing's proximity to Endau-Rompin National Park will undoubtedly create plenty of positive spin-off for the "Rainforest to Reef" concept too. Not to mention the socio-economic and infrastructure benefits for the greater Mersing area.
Clearly, Mersing Harbour Centre, along with its affiliated projects currently in the pipeline, will be a huge boon for Mersingians and travelers, alike.
