the good thing.. this is the place for mangrove tree island in Malaysia.. I'm attracted to the Arboretum.. the path that near to the small mangrove tree. A lot of project on mangrove tree plantation from outside. This is stress releasing by looking at green leaves.. easy to go to the island by boat with RM5 for go and return..... More

This place appeared on the tourist map several years ago because tour operators ran out of options to impress and to inject a dose of curiosity to tourists. Because it was mentioned in tour brochures, tourists tell themselves they must go. Kukup is out of the way; it is a desolated village by the sea just like the many hundreds... More

May be great place for a weekend hideaway for many Johore Malaysians but then again if I start comparing south west with south east Johore beach or seafood places, I don t see any good reason to drive all the way from JB (I hr + for the seafood) given petrol costs and time. The fishermen village need big clean... More

To go to Palua Kukup, you have the option of RM10 per head from a boat, its a sea transport and pretty safe. The drive there is pretty relaxing and not much traffic. There on the sea you can see the traditional floating fishing areas on the way over. The park area is pretty small, but its full of animals... More

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.
