Top areas in Mersing


The small town of Mersing is located in peninsular Malaysia’s state of Johor, and is most visited as a stopover on the way to Tioman Islands. The town is easily accessed by bus or car from many of Malaysia’s major cities, as well as from Singapore.

Although just a small town, Mersing is more than just a stopover on the to the islands, and certainly worth spending at least a few days. There are several hotels and guesthouses with stunning views of the coastline, all dotted along Air Papan Beach and Tanjung Resang Beach. One of the best things about the beaches in Mersing is that they are relatively isolated and not at all crowded like the popular places. Of course, this also means that one should be more careful and mindful while relaxing in these isolated areas.

As the town is quite small, getting around is very easily done by foot. Exploring around the town will reveal an ancient Hindu temple atop a hill, an absolute must-do for anyone visiting Mersing.
