Whereas collecting booked ferry tickets used to be a somewhat hectic affair, given the dated and rather inefficient old ticket counters in Mersing, things have taken a decidedly more contemporary turn at the recent opening of Mersing Harbour Centre.
In fact, it may even be said that with the advent of Mersing Harbour Centre, Mersing as a whole well and truly leapt into the future, particularly in all matters pertaining to the region's many natural tourism treasures.
Mersing and Tioman tourism

Obviously, these treasures include Tioman Island, by most in the vicinity considered nothing short of the crown jewel of the greater Mersing area.
Though other tourism draws that enjoy ever-rising visitors' numbers are Endau Rompin National Park and the countless outdoor activities that can be enjoyed within the Mersing region, such as jungle-trekking, deep sea fishing, sailing, kiteboarding and stand-up paddling.
Clearly, Mersing Harbour Centre offers so much more than just a place to collect ferry tickets that were booked online.
To wit, the newly-erected complex boasts a brand new and fully comprehensive food and beverage section wing, offering local delicacies and western dishes too, along with hot and cold beverages. Bon appetit :)
