Tanjung Piai National Park

Tanjung Piai National Park

 

Tanjung Piai is an environmental sanctuary, where the earth, sea, plant and animal life exist in complete harmony. This park is home to many species of birds and mangrove dwellers like mangrove crabs, beady-eyed mudskippers and crab-eating macaques.

Located 90km south of Johor Bahru's city centre, Tanjung Piai also features a National Park that gives visitors a glimpse into the mangrove dweller's natural habitat. Entrance fees are RM3 for Malaysians and RM5 for foreign visitors. These entry fees are payable at Tanjung Piai's visitors' complex.

Platforms have been built through the park so visitors can enjoy these mangroves in comfort. This peaceful park has become popular as a camping destination, in recent years.
