Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, my relative doesn't reply any of my
emails or contacts! Plain rude. Some families have them. I am close to his mother who is very elderly and I want to visit her not this relative who can't be bothered to answer my emails or calls.

The Lovely People of Batu Pahat

by Aidy_p

I'm usually quite cautious whenever I'm travelling. More so if the place is reknowned for theft and kidnapping. But Batu Pahat was really a breath of fresh air. In a short span of time when my family and I were in Batu Pahat, the people there showed me how down-to-earth they were and also, how they would go all their way to help lost tourists such as us.

The first instance was when we were looking for the mall - The Summit. We stopped at the Shell petrol station just beside the town square. An Indian man working at the petrol station not only gave us the directions, he even rode on his motorcycle to guide us all the way to the doorstep of the mall! What's more, he did it out of goodwill.

The next instance was when we were at The Summit and had was looking for Ah See wanton noodle house. We asked a couple and even though they are not sure of the location, the lady actually whipped out her mobile phone to contact her relative to ask for directions. A man who was standing nearby overheard our conversation offered us a helping hand. "Turn left and then another left. After that, turn right on at the third traffic light and just go straight". We had no problems locating the place.

Wonderful, wonderful people!

BP Seaside

BP is quite near to seaside, only about 20 minutes of drive in average speed will bring you to the seaside, it was The Straits of Melacca, very historical and beautiful. The seaside has some fishing village and some nice restaurants, why not.

Batu Pahat On The Coast

by chiabh

"Batu Pahat aka Bandar Penggaram"

Batu Pahat was founded in 1893 by Datuk Bentara Luar Mohamed Salleh Perang on the orders of the then Sultan of Johor, Sultan Abu Bakar... The town was officially named Bandar Penggaram (loosely translated as Salt-Makers' Town) but the name is seldom used as the town folks continue to use the name Batu Pahat... This may be due to the fact the residents and visitors found it difficult to pronounce Bandar Penggaram...

Batu Pahat is located on the coast of the Strait of Melaka in the state of Johor... It can be reached from the North-South Highway thru the town of Ayer Hitam... The coastal road from Pontian in the south runs thru Batu Pahat northwards to Muar and Melaka... Batu Pahat is the second largest manufacturing economy in Johor...

What Is In A Name

BATU Pahat can be translated as chiselled rock or rock and chisel... However, the town square named after Batu Pahat’s original name, Bandar Penggaram... Whichever the literal translation may be, the origins of Batu Pahat is shrouded in uncertainty...

The story accepted by historians is that it is named after a rocky well, known as the Batu Pahat well, which was dug and chiselled by Siamese troops in the 15th century in Kampung Minyak Beku... Historical records state that Admiral Awi Di Chu or Awe Di Chu, who led the Siamese army, had been instrumental in building the well... The army camped in Batu Pahat prior to the assault... The well is now a landmark as well as a tourist attraction in the district...

Another version is that the Portuguese after seizing Malacca, built the A Famosa fortress with granite rocks... They got the rocks from quarries at the mouth of a river now known as Sungai Batu Pahat... The areas where the quarries were located were known as Batu Pahat and this is where Batu Pahat got its name...

"What Is There In Batu Pahat For You"

There isn't really many tourist sights in Batu Pahat... The town, however, is littered with many "heritage" buildings if you were to walk the streets... But of course, there is the Batu Pahat Well in Kampung Minyak Beku...

Batu Pahat is noted for its food, particularly the assam pedas preparation which is sour and a bit spicy... The main ingredient can be stringray, fish, prawns or squids... Its otak-otak is also as good as those from Muar...

There are 2 golf course in Batu Pahat with the 9-holes Batu Pahat Golf Club close to town and just off Jalan Kluang... The 18-holes Bukit Banang Golf & Country Club is few km south of the town is on the trunk road to Pontian...

"How To Get To Batu Pahat"

Batu Pahat is on the coastal road... It can be approached from 4 different directions...

If you are coming from Johor Baru, exit at the Air Hitam Interchange of the NS Expressway and take the upgrade highway from Air Hitam to Batu Pahat... Visitors from the east coast can reached Air Hitam thru Kluang...

From the south, especially those from the Tuas Second Link, visitors can drive in from Pontian...

From the north, use the trunk road thru Muar...

Alternatively, if you are on the NS Expressway, exit at Yong Peng Utara Interchange and upon exit, use the trunk road directly to Batu Pahat...

Public buses are available form nearby towns of Muar, Pontian and Kluang... From Johor Baru, express buses can be taken from the Larkin Bus Terminal or the bus stand in Melrin Tower in the town centre... Taxis also ply all these routes...

The ferry terminal for Batu Pahat is in Minyak Beku... There are regular fery service to Tanjung Balai Kariman, an Indonesian ferry port across the straits to Sumatra...
