mangrove swamp used to be the last place anyone wants to be. The stench
puts people off and the dirty, sticky muds shuns most from getting near
Today there is much renewed interest in the mangrove swamp as people
begin to realize why the Almghty created it. The imprortance of this
buffer zone is now realized and in itself has become an attraction.
The three hour cruise along the Ayer Hangat River will take you deep
into the mangrove at times we will not hesitate to insist that you get
your feet wet . And why not? The more interesting things lies deeper
within the mangrove swamp. Unlike the others we take you on our wooden
perahu and cruise you along at a leisurely pace so you can enjoy the
serenity of the place.
Like the rainforest it is also a dynamic system renewing itself
constantly. Harvesting some of the timber within will allow the younger
trees to mature faster. However, we abhored at the destruction of the
swamp to give way to the artificial aquaculture industry.
The cruise will end at Dr. Ghani's house where lunch is ready for you
the Balai. Lunch will be in traditional Malay style with rice and the
usual dishes of curry, ulam (Malay Salad), cooked vegetables and some
other surprises. This will be finished with coffee/tea and a chat.
