Kampung Sungai Melayu
Looking at Johor Bahru, you wouldn’t think it was possible an ecotourism hub to thrive so close to the city, let alone a bustling highway. A true hidden gem, Kampung Sungai Melayu is a small village built around a mangrove swamp and river which houses a diverse ecosystem of flora and fauna.
This area is a haven for birdwatchers, sporting both local and migratory birds such as hornbills, eagles and storks. Visitors can enjoy boat rides along the river not only for birdwatching but to try their hand at crab catching and fishing, having their catch cooked up and served to them for their next meal. There are fisheries and farms which are run by the local residents that can be visited as well. Making “belacan”, “asam pedas” and making handicraft are also activities in which guests may partake. Trips to Kampung Sungai Melayu come in three packages, with the full package offering the complete experience.
