Kampung Mukut

Pulau Tioman

This traditional and secluded kampung may be one of the prettiest villages on the island, and the beach is lovely. If it’s traditional Malaysian life you're after, Mukut is your spot. A nearby excursion from here is the trek to Asah Waterfall, while there's tons of forest to explore too.
