Fishing Village on stilts

Kukup is a fishing village built on stilts over the sea and is located about 70 kilometres from Johor Bahru, and 20 kilometres from Pontian with only one road to get there. Kukup is famous for its seafood but in my opinion there's better in Singapore and I'm told even better in JB. But it's worth a day trip and there are many operators that will take you there.

    It looks like Kukup has a few interesting options for a wandering tourist! One of these days I must make it back to Asia for another go-round.

    Did you buy the card holder (luck!) before the stamps? (:- Stilt villages have something special; living above the water. Kampung Ayer in Brunei is a nice one too. It seems there will be new Malaysia pages soon. . . . . I want to travel back to KL.
