how to book this place package?
Hi, can you share with me where you book the resort?
Hi, could you please advise where you book the Mabul water bungalow? I am trying to book this via gmail sipadan.adh , but they need full payment in order to confirm my booking and they need copy of my passport , credit card and authorization letter to charge my credit card. is that normal? or a scam?
Hi, Sorry just picked this up, maybe too late. I use Dive the world for booking my holidays there. Seems to be cheaper than the Mabul site? You can pay by bank transfer - no copies of your passport needed! Hope this helps!
