Mersing is a town, mukim and the capital of Mersing District, Johor, Malaysia.Mersing town (estimated population in 2009: 21,670) is a town visited by Malaysians and foreign tourists on the way to the Tioman Islands.Mersing town is particularly significant for a number of reasons: it is one of only two major towns situated in the eastern half of Johor state (the other being Kota Tinggi), it lies on the main trunk road that connects southern as well as eastern Johor with the east coast of Pahang state including Pahang's capital Kuantan, and it is the main departure point for ferries to the nearby offshore islands such as Tioman Island.Geographic LocationMersing port in the mouth of Mersing River is also the main port for ferries to Tioman Island and the more than 40 other islands in the Seribuat Archipelago.Although Tioman Island is geographically closer to Johor, it is administratively part of the state of Pahang. This makes Mersing town analogous to Kuala Perlis as the port of departure for an island that is located in another state (Kuala Perlis, which is in Perlis, is the port of departure for Langkawi Island, which, though geographically closer to Perlis, is part of the state of Kedah).
