Look for sign going to National Park (Taman Negara), or else you will end up at the Tanjung Piai resort.

Once you reach the end of the board walk, you will see the meeting point of Johor & Melaka Straits, where lots of cargo ships park or sailing by there. Further behind, you would get a glimpse of Singapore if the weather is fine.

It's a mangrove conservation site, and there are some information about different species of fauna and mangroves in the visitor centre for education purpose. You could see mini crabs, interest spiral shells and iguana at the park.

Be careful of your belongings as monkeys are almost everywhere.

You could also do fishing at the jetty.

The things I dislike about this place are 1) there are lots of rubbish, mostly consist of empty water bottles. I suspect it was the seawater from the Melaka & Johor Straits that flushed up the rubbish. Cleaning is highly required.

2) In the toilet, water basin tap was broken and was out of water when I was there, even though the toilet has water supply for flushing. Maintenance is required.

Transport: The southest point of Asia Mainland. From Johor Bahru ,90km, take public transport to Pekan Nenas or Pontian, than transit to this Park.Easier acess by driving. From Kuala Lumpur, go to south, using PLUS Highway, exit at Simpang Rengam at Johor, than take the direction to Pontian, or can exie at Sedenak, than turn left to Ayer Baloi, than go straight , you will find big signboard to bring you there.
It is biggest mangrove jungle at country itself, visitors can see different habitats here, especially for enthusiasts interested in mangrove dwelling. Mangroves, important for their resilience, are also one of the maintstays to sustainable growth of the various mangrove wildlife. It also serves to protect land from the fierce onslaught of the wild sea. Platforms are built through the park so visitors can walk around in comfort.
Walk to the end of jetty, can see clearly Indonesia Karimon Island, and also Singapore area. Sitting at the jetty, strong wind blowing, was really relax after a walk at platform.There are landmark which is a big globe near other side, do not miss it.
Suitable for family and teenager, especially those who like nature and green.

tips: Be careful of monkey inthe park, it will chase you if you bring foods--must folloe the park staffs advise and instructions.

Less than 2hrs drive from JB, its located in Pontian district. Near to Pontian Kecil and Rengit (yeah, you may enjoy seafoods here). No public transport to reach here. Admission only RM5 for adult and RM3 for senior citizens. You may asked to not bring any food inside as there are lot of monkeys that will attack you if you bring food together. Please enjoy the mangrove life on your way to end of Asia, the southermast of Asia continent. You may find mudskippers, snails, small crab (i dont know what they are called) living in the mud, before you reach the end of Tanjung Piai about 2km. Congratulation! You are now standing at the Southernmost tip of mainland asia. Do take pictures with the globe.
Sourvenirs are sold at the ticket counter. Toilet available outside the park, with forest theme.

Tanjung Piai is part of the Johor National Park, located at the district of Pontian Johor. It is approx. 90km (1 hour leisure drive) from Johor Bahru.

Tanjung Piai is so special because it is situated at The Sourthermost Tip of Mainland Asia and also one of the largest coastal mangrove swamp in the world!

This place is definitely good for the nature lover and kids, where many mangrove habitats & species can be spotted here such as mudskipper, cockles, crabs, horsetail crabs, macaque, monkeys and monitor lizards.

The facilities at the park are adequate. It is easy to walk on the boardwalk while enjoying the nature reserve and further you can reach the unique landmark - The Sourthenmost Tip of Mainland Asia!!

Strongly recommended to visit as its not just a walk but to learn how to preserve our nature.
