hi

I fly into Singapore on the 26th April and have 10 days to spend before i fly onto Tokyo, i only really want to stay in Singapore for a couple of days and was then thinking of travelling up to mersing and catching the boat over to Palau Tioman, i was wandering does anyone know how long this journey will take/cost and also what are the best accommodation options on the Island i.e is there backpackers hostels?
Lastly is this a safe place for a lone female traveller?
thanks x
