salang is not a romantic place at all :(
a loud and happening place.

DC try ask fisherman divers (http://www.fishermandivers.com/home.html)  or azmi (http://www.azmidive.com/)
the rates are on the site but i think you can get cheaper than that. Just be nice and cheerful to them :)
As for romantic stay, i think better you ask the DC. they can help you out.
There is a chalet that located on the Hill. Dont ask for that kind of chalet. it wont be romantic climbing the hill.

Once you arrive at the jetty salang, fisherman is on the left and azmi on the right.

tiger reef is a must!
same goes for chebeh and golden reef also labas and batu malang.
all of them is a must.

hum forgot.U want to have a romantic get away.

For romantic, there is only ONE place on Tioman for that.

http://www.japamalaresorts.com/Malaysia-boutique-resort-Tioman-Island.html

But this boutique resort is on the southern tip of Tioman, not really near the dive centres. So I think you have to walk or drive to the DC.

Thanks for the advice...yet to decide between salang indah and salang pusaka  [-( salang indah , need to climb hill kah? the seaview chalet all finish already  :( hmm...

as for dives..i'll do 2dives + a few shore dives only...coz dont wanna leave the missus too long... besides i think i'll be already full of dives after my bali trip..hehe..but adding a few in my dive log sounds just to tempting  :P

yo Hans... :hello:
rather than go to Tioman why dont you go to Kapas Island... There is one resort there that catch my attention... If i not mistaken the place is Gem Island Resort, Pulau Kapas.... very very the romanctic one... hehehe... the resort are more comfortable and dive site is just aroun the corner dude... hehehe...  :D

Gem doesn't have a DC.

The only DC is on Kapas itself.

But Gem resort can arrange to have the DC send a boat to pick you up for dives. So the dives may be a bit higher in cost. But probably not by much.

Gem has a house reef. So you may want to ask the DC if they will let you have tanks for solo shore diving.
