Mersing Harbour Centre
Officially opened at the end of 2017, Mersing Harbour Centre has since paved the way for Mersing to become the gateway to idyllic offshore islands the likes of Tioman, Rawa, Aur and others.
With the grand opening of Mersing Harbour Centre, the procedure of collecting one’s ferry tickets and catching the ferry has finally been upgraded.
To facilitate the process, Mersing Harbour Centre features a number of clearly distinguishable counters for the purpose of ticket collection, ferry manifest registration, as well as for payment of the fees and tolls that are charged.
Travellers who have a preference to walk-in in order to book last-minute ferry tickets can also be served at Mersing Harbour Centre. That is, as long as the ferry in questions isn’t fully booked yet of course.
To ensure nobody goes hungry or thirsty whilst waiting for the ferry to depart, Mersing Harbour Centre offers a comprehensive food and beverage wing. But those looking for traditional Malay snacks, beach attire, island keepsakes, or sun-block, or mosquito repellent, or practically anything tropical island related, will be able to find what they need in Mersing Harbour Centre’s many shops, pushcarts and kiosks. Happy shopping!
Other useful Mersing Harbour Centre facilities are: a car park, an exhibition hall, a mosque, an outdoor children’s playground, a spa treatment centre and a contemporary toilet block, including shower booths.
Clearly, Mersing Harbour Centre is the one-stop shop that Mersing was in need of for many years. Now that it’s fully operational, catching the ferry to Tioman Island, Rawa, or any of the other little offshore gems, has become nothing short of a breeze.
