This is super fun! The guests will get to enjoy the special kampung lunch homemade by the folks. The most interesting part is... eating with your fingers. My fingers were't the perfect utensil and I'd mess up my plate and my shirt. But well, it was a great experience!

Before getting up the boat, we were entertained by Mamat, the cute little ape (with the diaper) owned by the boatmen.

The fireflies experience was a great one. We oohed-and-aahed over the blinking little creatures as they flew over us. And there were countless of them!!! 


Don't hesitate to ask Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa for more details.

hi
did you complete the outing in one day? tks for ur tips m planning mine soon :))

ai wei said...

Yaz,
hi, yes :D
we completed all these in one day. however, if you have extra days over here, you can split them up.

Yas said...

Hi thanks for replyin,I'd like to know what time the tour will be started so i can set off early from s'pore to do the tour on the day i arrive

ai wei said...

hi Yas,
if I am not mistaken, the kampong tour starts at 11 until 2. Perhaps you can call up the Pulai Desaru to inquire about the time for the trip. they will help you to make arrangement. at that time, we started at 1pm, and it got a bit rush.
the earlier, the better...

Yaz said...

oh okie tanks for all de tips ai wei :) have a good day ahead!!
