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.

Well it's a so-so experience coming here, nothing much to see except fishing village, inns, and mangrove forest, seafood restaurant, karaoke and so-so for a place near a sea.. Nothing much to do too.. Am not sure if given the chance I want to visit this place again..

Didn't really think much of the park, probably coloured by my preception of the overall cleanliness of the neighbouring fishing village and the town in general. The hygiene in the fishing village is rather apalling with dust, dirt and grime everywhere. Plumbing is still rather non existent with toilets dumping their 'contents' right into the river / sea. There is... More
