Kukup, Pontian, 82300 Johor, Malaysia

Whilst in Johor, one of the places that we visited was Kukup in Pontian, Johor. No, we did not cross over the Kukup island to visit the Johor National Park due to time constraints but even so, Kukup Laut itself has so much to offer its visitors.

Kukup reminds me of Pangkor Island in Perak but then Pangkor is an island but Kukup Laut is not. Still, both are Chinese fishing villages and both have managed to capitalized on their quaintness to attract tourists and their moolah.

Kukup may be just a small town on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia but there is a Kukup International Ferry Terminal (Terminal Feri Antarabangsa) here that is an exit point to Tanjung Balai, Indonesia. Ferries ply the waters three times a day, every day of the week, except for Fridays, when there are only two trips out.

  2. I am thinking to let my 10yrs old son to join school trip to Kukup. Their school arrange them to stay 1 night in the chalet . I’m just worry whether the place is dangerous for kids (I mean the ‘water/sea).
