Kampung Tekek, in spite of its village status, is big enough to be considered the de facto capital of Pulau Tioman. Kampung Tekek is located along a 3 kilometer bay at the island's central west-facing coast and is the third stop if you're coming in by ferry. It's also your halfway point if you're bound for Kampung Tekek's antipodal village on Tioman's east coast, Juara, because you need to drive cross-country from Kampung Tekek to get there.
Kampung Tekek has seen a fair bit of development over the years and currently boasts a decent urban infrastructure, complete with plenty of retail shops, eateries, a school and even a bank of sorts (including ATM). Kampung Tekek also has a concrete road and motorised traffic in the form of mopeds and cars, mostly jeeps.
What's more, Kampung Tekek is the proud owner of Tioman's airport, as well as two more recent additions, the Marina and the new Immigration Complex. Kampung Tekek's other draws are its duty-free goods and numerous accommodations catering to various budgets, from high to low.
And let's not forget the dense verdant jungle that offers Rafflesia flowers, a stunning waterfall and copious wildlife of both the animal and plant variety, as well as the great snorkeling to be had at Kampung Tekek's Marine Park and Pulau Renggis in particular.
Kampung Tekek is also the jumping board to Tioman's many scuba diving sites, so if you're keen to scuba dive in Tioman, Kampung Tekek is the place to find the better dive outfits
