The Kelongs are fish farms located in the sea, and there are some kelongs along the Straits of Johor at the Lim Chu Kang area. During one of my trips, I have a chance to visit one of these kelongs and some of my friends even bought some fishes for cooking.
From time to time, I received enquiries on the location and contact number of the kelong. Since I went to the kelong on an organised tour, I do not have the contact number of the kelong. As for location, the kelongs are situated near to the end of Lim Chu Kang Road at the Sarimbun area.
