A Lumut General Tip
I visit Lumut years ago when a Sitiawan friend brought me to his home to stay a night in the typical village wooden house. They show me their rubber knife which is the sharp tool to tap the rubber trees to get the liquid (latex) flowing and drop into a cup they already nicely tied much earlier. I have no idea which one is Sitiawan and which one is Lumut as both just look so similar. Both are small town and most inhabitants from what I saw were Malaysian-Chinese of HockChew origin.

The Royal Teluk Rubiah Country Club is located about 13 km South-West of Lumut... From the golf course you will have a view on the Straits of Melaka as well as Pulau Pangkor in the distance... Designed by Estern Green, the 18-hole par-72 course plays to 6,225m from the championship tees...

Bowling in Sitiawan
If you are bored out of your brains in Lumut, you can drive under half an hour to Sitiawan to experience a "bigger" town and other entertainment options. Sitiawan has a bowling center and it's not expensive to play there
From Damai Laut, you can take a leisurely cruise up the Dinding river for scenic view of Lumut and its surrounding.
The cruise would passing by the Royal Malaysian Navy Base, Lumut Yacht club, Lumut Port and onwards to the Tuanku Bainun bridge and back. If you go for the sunset cruise, you could witness the spectacular sunset view while cruising.
Tuanku Bainun Bridge
The newly opened Tuanku Bainun Bridge is named after the current Raja Permaisuri (Queen) of Perak, Tuanku Bainun Mohd Ali.
The bridge links the Setiawan/Manjung area to Segari and Damar Laut, about 30 minutes drive from Lumut town.
