Kampong Rantau Abang Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 31 photos

I travelled on the over night bus from Penang in the hope of seeing a giant leatherback turtle laying it's eggs. I was on a tight schedule and on my way down to Singapore. Feeling tired after a long nights bus journey I walked along the beach and found some bungalows. In the reastaurant I met a couple that I had been with in India, so we talked and they advised me that they had been here for five days and had no sign of a turtle and they now had to leave. Luckily for me I was woken at about 4:00am and told to get ready for the drive as a turtle had been spotted further down the beach.
