Apa Ada Dengan Tanjung Piai? (Gambar)

Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Tanjung Piai yang bakal diadakan tidak lama lagi telah melonjakkan nama Tanjung Piai, yang sebelum ini mungkin tidak begitu dikenali selain dalam kalangan Bangsa Johor.

Kawasan Tanjung Piai terletak di selatan Johor, dalam daerah Pontian dan tidak jauh dari pekan Kukup; namun dari sudut persempadanan pilihan raya pula, kawasan Parlimen Tanjung Piai meliputi dua kawasan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) iaitu N.55 Pekan Nenas dan N.56 Kukup.

Tanjung Piai mungkin tidaklah segah nama destinasi-destinasi pelancongan lain di Johor yang lebih popular seperti Legoland dan Puteri Harbour Theme Park di Iskandar Puteri, Desaru, Johor Bahru, Gunung Ledang, Pulau Besar, Pulau Rawa dan sebagainya; namun tahukah anda bahawa di sinilah letaknya tanah paling selatan di benua Asia?

Taman Negara Tanjung Piai terletak di hujung paling selatan Semenanjung Malaysia dan di sini juga letaknya titik paling selatan di tanah besar Eurasia.

Tempat jatuh lagi dikenang, inikan pula tempat bermain, nama Tanjung Piai amat istimewa kepada saya, ibu dan kakak-kakak kerana banyak kenangan manis bersama arwah ayah di sini.

Beberapa tahun yang lalu, ketika arwah ayah masih ada, kami sering ke Tanjung Piai, Kukup dan Pontian selain daerah-daerah lain di Johor, dan pada satu ketika, kami pernah ke Tanjung Piai hampir setiap minggu sehingga saya sudah biasa dengan kawasan ini kerana telah berbelas kali ke sana.

Tanjung Piai kaya dengan keindahan semulajadi, dikelilingi oleh hutan paya bakau yang sangat cantik dengan kedipan kelip-kelip di sesetengah kawasan pada waktu malam.

Kalau mengikut kawasan di bawah Parlimen Tanjung Piai, ekonomi penduduknya tertumpu kepada perikanan, pertanian dan ekopelancongan.

Makanan lautnya sangat segar dan antara yang paling saya rindui ialah ‘baby sotong’, ketam dan otak-otak yang kami nikmati di Tanjung Piai Resort, iaitu sebuah resort yang dibina di atas air berhampiran dengan jeti nelayan dan tidak jauh dari Taman Negara Tanjung Piai.

Kawasan perkampungan sekitar Tanjung Piai sentiasa tenang, berbeza dengan suasana di pekan Kukup yang dipenuhi dengan restoran-restoran makanan laut yang agak sibuk ketika hujung minggu.

Menjelang PRK nanti, khasnya dalam tempoh berkempen, kawasan yang tenang ini akan menjadi sibuk dan akan dipenuhi oleh pemimpin dan petugas parti-parti politik dari seluruh negara; termasuk mereka yang belum pernah berkunjung ke Tanjung Piai selama ini.

Semoga penduduk Tanjung Piai akan membuat pilihan yang tepat dengan memilih pemimpin yang berjiwa besar, berwibawa serta amanah demi memastikan kesejahteraan rakyat sentiasa terbela.

Di bawah ialah sebahagian daripada koleksi gambar yang kami rakamkan di sekitar kawasan Tanjung Piai beberapa tahun yang lalu.

Johor (4): Photos Of High Tide vs Low Tide (Tanjung Piai)

31 05 2016

Last week I visited Tanjung Piai again, but it was a very short trip that I did not have much chance to take pictures.

Anyway, during my second visit which was a couple of weeks ago, I managed to take wonderful photos of the place.

It was high tide when we reached the Tanjung Piai Resort, unlike my first visit when the tide was low that I could see the muddy ground below the piers.

So I took the chance to take pictures of the place to compare them with the pictures I took during my first trip and we can see big differences in the scenery as well as the weather.

During our first trip, it was quite hot and it wasn’t really windy until nighttime.

But during my second visit, it was very, very windy that some of the table clothes at the unoccupied tables at restaurant flew and they had to clip the table clothes to the tables.

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.
