4. Go shopping duty free – The island is a duty free zone. You can get some good bargains with chocolates, perfumes and more such items especially at the jetty area and on the shopping strip at Pantai Cenang. Tobacco, alcohol, sweets and electronics are the main attraction on the island and are available at tax free prices.

5. Go for the sunset cruise – The sunset cruise provides a beautiful sunset vision along with some good music, food and off-course good company.
