About Pulau Tiga:

Believe to be formed by a volcanic eruption over a hundred years ago; it was essentially unknown to the world until it became a household place name in the U.S.A, thanks to the reality TV show “Survivor”.

Pulau Tiga provide refuge to several species of mammals, numerous birds, variety of reptiles and amphibians and also hundreds or even thousands species of insects.

According to a legend as the name indicates, the main island, Pulau Tiga was believed to be originally made up of three sister islands; each being the home of the princesses of a powerful king. Because of hatred and jealousies of the elder sisters towards the youngest for falling in love with the most handsome prince, the sisters used black magic to turn the prince into a rock in the shape of a turtle. The rock was believed to be deposited at the mouth of the Lake Setompok River. And that was how the name Kuala Penyu originated.

The heart-broken sister ran to another island and pacified her sadness among the sea snakes; making the smaller island for her home. The king, angry of the scheming sisters, turned their islands into mud volcanoes. The eruptions of the mud volcanoes were believed to be the cries of regrets of the sisters. Over the years, the flow of the tears of the sisters in the form of mud lava were joined together to create the present Pulau Tiga.

The first season of the Survivor dominated ratings in the summer of 2000 and made the island of Pulau Tiga a household name.

“Survivor” is a reality-based television show on the CBS network based on Sweden’s Expedition Robinson. Sixteen Americans were “marooned” on Pulau Tiga and their every move was filmed by television cameras. The contestants in this twisted game show have to slowly vote each other off the island and end result, after 39 days, is that only one “Survivor” remains – and that person wins $1 million.
