Kukup Island 2D1N Trip (Part 2)

On the 2nd day of our Kukup 2D1N trip, we had a simple breakfast and we began our journey to mangrove forests at Kukup Island. A brief description about the Kukup Island: Kukup Island is an island entirely covered by mangrove forest and surrounded by mudflats - the mudflats extend up to a few kilometers on the West and Northwest of the island. 

Departed from Kukup Island Jetty...

The destination: Taman Negara Johor Pulau Kukup. The entrance fees for us (students) were RM 3 per headcount. Before entering Taman Negara Johor Pulau Kukup, we had taken a group photo. 

The 1st stop was the suspension bridge which was about 10 - 15 meter height. The fear of height might cause you trembled when passing through the suspension bridge.

The stretch after the Suspension Bridge...

You learn that if you sit in the woods and wait, something happens.

Hmm.. crocodile will appear?! LOL

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Finally, we reached the observation tower. Huh.. felt so tired after a long walk.

Hmm.. we did not stop by the mangrove forests for a long time.We headed to kelong after that. The fishermen were very nice and introduced us some fish that we rarely seen.

Before bidding goodbyes, we went to a seafood restaurant to have our delicious lunch! The hearty meal after all at Kukup Island. The fish and crabs were succulent. 

That's the end of our Kukup 2D1N trip!
That's a good yet short getaway!
The price for the trip (RM100 exclusive bus ticket back to Batu Pahat) was worth for both foods and accommodation at Kukup Island.

The memories etched forever...
in heart and mind~
