Johor (1): Tanjung Piai Resort

A lovely view from the parking area of the Tanjung Piai Resort.

A lovely view from the parking area of the Tanjung Piai Resort.

On the 11th of March, I visited Tanjung Piai which is situated in Pontian.

The southernmost point tip of Tanjung Piai, at the coordinates of 1°15’N, 103°30’E is not only the southernmost part of Malaysia but also the southernmost tip of the Eurasia mainland!

We stayed at the Tanjung Piai Resort which was connected to the land by long piers.

The whole complex was built on stilts and walking on the piers, we can enjoy the amazing views of the Straits of Johor and the beauty of the mangrove swampland.

We reached the resort during low tide and as we walked along the piers to our room, we can see the muddy ground of the mangrove swamp below the piers.

As night came the seawater started to rise and after a few hours, the water rose so high that one can even fish from the piers.

It was very beautiful during the night and walking on the piers over the seawater, I felt as if I was walking on piers over the ocean with the cool sea breeze blowing in my hair.

As I listened to the calming sounds of the waves and looked at the stars shining brightly above me, I was enchanted by the serenity of the surrounding.

It was amazing to look at the straight line of the bright lights coming from the ships as if there’s a street market over the dark water of the Straits of Johor in contrast to the darkness of the mangrove swampland on the opposite side.

Tanjung Piai is also a great place for enjoying fresh seafood; the crabs that we had for dinner was so fresh and tasty and I really enjoyed them.

Dear Abang Muhamad Faris,
Wa’alaikumsalam. Sorry for the late reply. I’ve been in Johor again for the past few days and I did not have the internet connection to update my blog. This time I was in Pasir Gudang, Ayer Hitam and Pagoh🙂 InsyaAllah, I hope that I’ll have the chance to visit Rambah. By the way, I was again in Tanjung Piai, Muar and Batu Pahat last week🙂
