Tanjung Piai National Park, Tanjung Piai, 82300 Kukup, Johor, Malaysia – part 2 of 4

One thing that visiting Tanjung Piai National Park proves is just how much rubbish there is in the seas as the mangrove swamp acts to catch a lot of it. The parks also have a problem with erosion of the coast. To protect the swamp giant sandbags had been placed at the shoreline. Unfortunately, this […]

Tanjung Piai National Park is located in Tanjung Piai, 82300 Kukup, Johor, Malaysia, and it contains, the most southerly point in mainland Asia (don’t believe all that stuff that it is in Sentosa, Singapore).

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – a free day out! Part 3 of 3 – summary

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – a free day out! Part 1 of 3

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve was a gem of a find… I had no idea such a place existed in Singapore, in fact I though the whole island was covered in roads and buildings. And, shock horror for Singapore, it was free! I expected this to be a fairly tame visit as I couldn’t imagine that […]

Night Market – Gelang Patah, Johor, Malaysia – birds and a potato on a stick

The market was typical of Malaysia, very busy with stalls selling cooked foods (pretty much anything you can imagine), raw fish and meat, vegetables, clothes, you name it and it was there. Discovered a new food… Potato on a stick. The potato […]

Mukah, Sarawak, Malaysia

The drive from Sibu to Mukah took just over three hours. Mukah is not a large town, it is on the coast and it does have an airport. The local beach is quite stunning. Mile upon mile of sand… The weather was very murky. However, the beach, and the surrounding land, does seem to be […]

By on April 19, 2014 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

Today I decided to have a road trip from Sibu to Mukah. Why? Well, why not? Thought it would be good to visit the coast and to have a look at another town in this part of Sarawak. Mukah, as the crow flies, is about 60 – 70 km from Sibu, however, there is no […]

SNAKE!!!  Black Cobra, near Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

This morning I was out driving around just outside of Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia, when I spotted something on the road… I thought it might be a snake, but there was a chance it was just a bit of discarded rubber, or a stick, or something. However, when I looked back in my rearview mirror the […]
