When planning a trip to the picturesque island of Tioman, there are quite a few things to keep in mind. One that's not to be underestimated is what snacks to bring along for the journey. As someone who has taken the bus and ferry to Tioman a handful of times, I can tell you from personal experience that if you're into quality snacks, the popcorn made by Eureka Snacks are by far the best munchies to bring along for the ride. Eureka Snacks are called gourmet snacks for a reason, after all.
Booking Tickets Online
Making sure you have your bus and ferry seats safely booked is critical of course. Luckily, nowadays, one of the awesome things about traveling is that you can easily buy your bus and ferry tickets online in advance. This also applies to trips to Tioman. Booking online eliminates the need to stand in queues; more often than not it ensures that you have a confirmed seat for the journey. This is why I recommend buying your tickets online, i.e. the peace of mind it offers, especially during peak travel periods such as public holidays, school holidays, weekends, etc.
Tasty Treats for the Journey
Now, once I've got my tickets booked, I switch gear to my go-to snacks. In fact, AFAIC, Eureka Snacks popcorn is a top-notch option. Not only is this popcorn ultra-delicious, but it also comes in quite the range of flavors, including a few really off-the-wall flavours like Kimchi, White Coffee and Pizza. Weird but ever so wonderful. Best of all, Eureka Snacks keep adding to their range, which means that you can enjoy something different each time. Sweettooth? Than go for the Darc Choc or Butter Caramel.
Eureka Snacks popcorn is also lightweight, comes in resealable packs, which makes them a really suitable option for travelers.
Tioman, Here We Come
The bus journey to Tioman can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you're starting from Woodlands Checkpoint or CIQ during busy spells. If you set off from Larkin Sentral, it's a breeze. But once you need to have your passport checked before you can depart for Mersing Harbour Centre, there may be some waiting around involved. Well, it's part and parcel of immigration and customs. But having a snack like Eureka Snacks popcorn on hand can help make it all more enjoyable. These fluffy yet crunchy popcorn balls of joy are the best to tide you over.
So yeah, planning a stay in Pulau Tioman? I recommend bringing some Eureka Snacks popcorn. Just order some online a few days before you depart and have it delivered to your home.
And there you have it, not only is Eureka Snacks popcorn easy to get, delicious and lightweight, but it's made without preservatives, transfats or GMO sources. And it's halal, by the way.
I, for one, am not leaving home without it :)
