Air Batang Village (ABC)

Air Batang, or ABC Village as it’s popularly known, is a rural village along the west coast of Pulau Tioman, at immediate north of Tekek. Located south of Panuba Bay and 3km before Salang via jungle trail, the village is a traditional backpacker hideout, with a high concentration of budget hotels offering basic accommodation, though quite a few resorts have upgraded their chalets in recent years.

The beach is a linear 1.5km stretch of sand, with emerald clear waters and lush landscapes, but the immediate seashore suffers from being overly rocky. Because of sparse development and a small population, the village retains a pleasant countryside environment.
