It was a few years ago where we stopover for a night before going to Singapore at the village. We have a bed & breakfast in one of the chalet or hut built above the sea bed. In the bathroom, your business drop into the sea. We bought some fishes at the kelong & brought over to the village to... More

4 of us travelled to Kukup National Park on Saturday from the other side of JB, looking for something different to do over the weekend. We were not disappointed and enjoyed our day out. The drive there was pretty and we felt almost like we were on holiday. We took a boat over to Palau Kukup National Park as soon... More

I visited Kukup with a tour, we stayed for about 2.5 hours. We had a delicious seafood lunch at a local restaurant, then we boarded a ferry for a 5 minute ride to the fishing farms. I really enjoyed seeing this unique way of fishing. Once we returned, we walked around the village, which is all on stilts, above the... More

Kukup is a fishing village, a very commercial fish village in Johor. I am not sure how many local resident staying there but you can see a lot of resort over there. Please do not think of the resort as those luxury type that you will see at any beaches. The resort here basically is the renovated local residential or... More

You won't go wrong to expose your kids closer to nature. Mangrove forest is unique and enlightening. A must visit place if one travel to south of Malaysia.

From the view, Pulau Kukup National Park is better than Tanjung Piai National Park. But I see they did not do any maintenance there and not even a park ranger on site to guide or assistance. Nothing much to see ... all mud!!! Also visited the kelong ... nothing to see ... not much fish!!! The only plus point is... More

Unbelievable place. From the road side by the bus station all you see is a few shops and a couple of restaurants. Walk down between these and you walk into a different world. A community living in stilted houses amongst mangroves with the sea beneath them. Totally enchanting with some really good sea food restaurants. Check the tide times to... More

A good place to see something different. The local seems to be very open here as they don't seems to lock their door, although many visitors passed by their houses every minutes.
