    Palm oil

    Enroute to Kukup fishing village you may also get an opportunity to stop at a traditional Malay palm oil plantation.

    But do wear some mosquito repellant and watch out for snakes amongst the foliage.

    Enroute to Kukup fishing village most tour operators will visit Orchid Valley with it's 1.5 million tropical orchid plants of more than 80 varieties. Orchid Valley is located only 28km from Johor Bahru.

    My visit coincided with the magnificent Tiger Orchid in full blossom which I'm told only occurs once every 12 years.

    Kukup is a fishing village built on stilts over the sea and is located about 70 kilometres from Johor Bahru and 20 kilometres from Pontian with only one road to get you there.

    Kukup is famous for its seafood but in my opinion there's better in Singapore and I'm told even better in JB.

    But it's worth a day trip and there are many operators that will take you there.
