Pulau Bidong

The island was home to the Vietnamese refugees back in the late 70’s and the 80’s. It became a deserted island after the refugees left and it was off limit to the public for a good 8 years or so...that somehow allows the corals to re-grow and was probably the reason why its coral reefs are in such a pristine condition with abundant marine life compared to the other popular resort islands on the east coast. There are rumors that it will be developed...if it does, it will be bad news for the surrounding reefs. Sharing some of the photos I took during the trip.
