Mersing Harbour Centre
The spanking new Mersing Harbour Centre is Mersing's heart and soul in terms of all things ferry and Tioman, as well as for the other islands located just off Mersing. If it's ferry tickets you need, or Tioman-related souvenirs, or traditional Malay snacks to munch on during the ferry ride to Tioman, Mersing Harbour Centre is the place to be.
Mersing Harbour Centre also has a very spacious food and beverage area that offers quality 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 as the gateway to the Sultan Iskandar Marine Park and its group of 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 and its affiliated projects currently in the pipeline will be a boon for locals and tourists, alike.
Mersing Harbour Centre not only comfortably encompasses a number of ferry ticket counters, but the elegant Mersing Harbour Centre building also features quite a few must-see "kedai", little snack and souvenir shops that have a decidedly local flavour, literally and figuratively.
Very helpfully for overseas travelers especially, Mersing Harbour Centre also has a Tourist Information Desk.
But that's not all. Mersing Harbour Centre also boasts a car park, an exhibition hall, a mosque, as well as a kiddie playground, along with contemporary washroom/bathroom facilities.
In other words, Mersing Harbour Centre is a comprehensive one-stop shop, the ideal place to spend your time whilst awaiting your ferry's departure.
