blogger that trigger my thought to visit this part of the world which happens to be in my country Malaysia. It is a tip of the southernmost of the mainland Asia landmass. South of this is Singapore. Although it is the southernmost, it is an island thus detached from the mainland Asia landmass. With that Tanjung Piai in Johor Malaysia became the southernmost tip of the Mainland Asia landmass. Anyway Singapore an island state is still to the south of the mainland Asia landmass.
I was in Singapore for a short holiday and had visited many places of interest in the republic and did enjoy that short stay. Since Tanjung Piai is near to Singapore I thought that on my way back to Kuala Lumpur by way of the Second Link I would make a visit to this landmark of the country, which has now been turn into a Johor National Park. Although It is close to the Second link there is no direct road to Tanjung Piai as yet. I hope the authority would run a road from the Malaysian side of the Second Link to Tanjung Piai. Thus would open up the area to tourist potential and a boom to that landmark; the Southernmost Tip of Mainland Asia landmass. As for now to get to Tanjung Piai one had to drive up to Pontian and then drive south.
As I walk that pathway I notice the tide was low and I could see the seabed with some of its habitat like small crabs running around or digging holes. In one area I saw many seashells laying around and I believe one is forbade to collects it. Since it was in the mid-noon I believe most of the habitats are having their siesta of sort but I did saw a group of monkey doing their ritual of caring one another careless of us human encroaching its territory.
After getting a certificate of our visit there, we left the area heading for Kukup where we had a seafood lunch. With that we head for Malacca and then home in KL. A hectic but enjoyable day indeed.
Have a nice day. [Please click image to enlarge and location below to see the map of this place]
