    Favorite thing: The best activity is to hunt for the best restaurant which offers the best deal for sea food. A good tip would be to spot a restaurant with lots of customers. Before dining, ask for the menu and the price. During Aug-Sept; the crabs will cost about RM28 perkg and those big prawns are about RM30 per plate. Do not miss those fried oysters and clams. It is always advisable to walk around and not settled with the 1st restaurant you spotted. Several famous restaurants would be Kim Hoe and Mei Sek.

    Fondest memory: Fondest memory is to examine the laid back lifestyle of the people and to purchase the best dried shrimps which cost RM24 perkg; not forgetting a good boat ride around the fish farms and mangrove swamp. To buy cheap dried shrimps, walk right into the village and there is a wholesaler selling fresh dried seafood in one of the houses. Attached is a pic to guide you if you can read mandarin.

    Favorite thing: The only thing that I enjoyed about this place was the seafood. Cheap & good. Everything else I didn't. The rickety "ferry" from the mainland was airconditioned, but I worried about the safety aspects.
    Arriving at the island during low tide certainly demonstrates how filthy the whole place is. Rubbish all over and raw sewage going directly into the sea.

    Fondest memory: The seafood. Nothing else. I wouldn't go back again.
