I went there after seeing its good review in TripAdvisor and people's blogs.Overall, it was a little below my expectation in terms of food and service. It was rather expensive too. The place was rather dirty;...

    If you've had enough of the usual Indian, Chinese or Malay food, you can opt to go to a pretty good western restaurant, Jook Joint.

  • Not much for westerners

    Not very much to do in Lumut at night. It is basically the parking lot for Pangkor island goers. There is for westerners one pub/rest. called Jooks, which is not bad, not very busy though. Also Rockafellas, which is not bad, has free pool table but quiet except friday night, Barbaque. Also is Capri restaurant, which has the best food of the 3.

Lumut Warnings and Dangers

  • BorneoGrrl's Profile Photo
    A bus in the ditch

    by BorneoGrrl Written Jul 9, 2006

    Lumut has a number of industries and is surrounded by small villages. Therefore, you have to be a little careful when driving on the road. You will meet many heavy trucks, villages on motorcycles (no helmets, btw) and other "stuntmen" whizzing up & down the highway

    My colleague had a self-accident when he tried to avoid an elderly man on his motorcycle. Luckily no one was seriously hurt.

Lumut Tourist Traps

  • gnh's Profile Photo

    by gnh Updated Jul 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You might end up in another hotel on the other side of the river !

    They always advertise it as Lumut, but poor you, be warned ! If you really enjoy the quiet of that place which is almost 20km away by road ( but only 3 km by boat ) then do not complain.

    Unique Suggestions: Very quiet place, but nice for children.

    No shopping. Mostly jungle environment. Very good for avid golfers ! The Golf Course, I mean.

    So you would have to enjoy the natural environment.

    A good escape from the city, anyway.

    Fun Alternatives: Better proceed straight to Pangkor Island

  • 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...
