800px-East_Coast_Park_Panorama,_Mar_06The East Coast Park (Chinese: 东海岸公园; Malay: Taman Pantai Timur; Tamil: கிழக்கு கடற்கரை பூங்கா) is a beach park located on the southeastern coast of Singapore. It was opened in the 1970s, when the government completed reclaiming land off the coast at Katong which extends from Changi to Tanjong Rhu. It also serves various neighborhood communities such as Tanjong Rhu and Marine Parade.
The 185 hectare East Coast Park is the largest park in Singapore, and is built entirely on reclaimed land with a man-made beach, where swimming is possible. The beach is protected by breakwaters. The park is accessible by East Coast Park Service Road with numerous exits along the East Coast Parkway. The place provides ample of parking space with many carparks situated along various areas of the park. SBS Bus Service 401 stops along the East Coast Service Road from Bedok MRT during weekends and public holidays. Underpasses link the park to the nearby Marine Parade housing estate.

Diving @ Tioman Island

Tioman-Island-Resort-4Tioman Island (Malay language: Pulau Tioman) is a small island in Rompin District, Pahang, Malaysia. It is located 32 kilometres (20 miles) off the east coast of the state,[2] and is some 20 kilometres (12 miles) long and 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) wide. It has eight main villages, the largest and most populous being Kampung Tekek in the north. The densely forested island is sparsely inhabited, and is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a popular scuba diving spot. There are also a lot of resorts and chalets around the island which has duty-free status.

Its beaches have been claimed to be depicted in the 1958 movie, South Pacific as Bali Hai but available evidence suggests this is a false claim.[3] In the 1970s, TIME Magazine selected Tioman as one of the world’s most beautiful islands.

The island is served by ferries from the Malaysian mainland, and a propeller plane service by Berjaya Air from the Changi Airport inSingapore and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, Selangor.

The island is part of Pahang territory, although it is geographically closer to mainland Johor than to mainland Pahang, and is accessed via ferry service from the Johorean coastal town of Mersing. Within Tioman Island there are four kampungs: Salang,Tekek, Juara and Air Batang. The telephone numbers in Tioman start with 09-413, 09-419, 09-582, 09-583 and 09-584.
