Travelogue

Impressions of Kampung Batu Laut

Kampung Batu Laut is a coastal town at Banting, Selangor. It is between Tanjung Sepat and Morib Beach.

I was attracted by the dead woods on my way back from Tanjung Sepat. The view was obstructed by other trees and houses, and the quick stop was really worthwhile.

It offered a winter-like feel in tropical country.

It was drizzling and too gloomy to photography anything, except for the shadows of the trees. The ‘dead woods’ make very interest web of branches.

I found this stretch of roadside fishing villages more interesting than Tanjung Sepat.

The black color ‘sand’ in the fore ground was not sand or dirt. There were snails (siput), millions of snails on the entire mangroove land. There were also plenty of crabs and skipper fishes. Visitors could get a good bird eye view by walking on the wooden bridge / platform and look down (during low tide).

It was Sunday but I am rushing back to KL (to continue office works), so only manage to spend few minutes at Batu Laut. I shall explore more on the next trip. There are few crowded seafood restaurents that worth exploring.

    • Hi anonymous, I am glad that you checked out the site (Batu Laut). It was not as well known as Tanjung Sepat, but you are right that this place is a hidden gem for sunset photography. I will also visit again and hope to meet one good sunset. Previous trips were either raining or cloudy. Hope you have better luck than me. Cheers.

    Hi, Tennyson the picture was awesome! =) I love it a lot. I’m just wondering do you still remember where do you took the pictures of the death trees and fishing vilage? What I mean is the specific place. As I would like to take some picture for my assignment. Hope to get a reply from you soon. =)

    • Hi Krystyn,
      Thank you for visiting this blog. If you are driving from Tanjung Sepat towards Klang, Kampung Batu Laut only few KM from Tanjung Sepat. The trees are on your left along the seashore, hidden behind a row of roadside stalls. Just climb or walk behind the stalls. Some people like to go there for sunset view.

      cheers.
