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.
This is a stone inscription regarding the origin of Batu Pahat, its a history indeed but I was told that the history of BP has several versions, this is probably one of them. This version is something where the Siamese came here to dig a big hole on a rock later they left and the place thus got the name.
The Chiselled Well, yes this is one of the version of history that says the Siamese came here blah blah blah that they chiselled a well and they left, so the name of Batu Pahat originated here.
