Lumut = Moss / Lichen / Algae

This hill greets you upon arrival at Lumut.

Go straight to the ferry, or turn right to drive through the seaside road.

Lumut is where the Royal Malaysian Navy has its base, so be prepared for big surprises in a little place.

Quiet Little Town

No wonder tourists love Lumut.

It's so quiet after the morning rush hour - 7 30 - 8 am when the Navy personnel rush to work through this road.

You can imagine how it was 40 years ago before the Naval Base came to town.

The Waterfront

Though not as exciting as Penang, Kuching or K Kinablu waterfronts, the Lumut Waterfront is surprisingly aesthetic and modernistic.

In the background, is the Naval Base, and further behind that, Pangkor Island.

You take the ferry to Pangkor, from Lumut. ...
