Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip

Leave a Comment
Since we got a one day holiday on this year's Wesak Day and don't know where to go, we decided to go to Tanjung Sepat for a one day trip.  Tanjung Sepat is a fishing village and also a small town in Kuala Langat district in Selangor, Malaysia.  Since it is only one day, we couldn't visit all the places and choose just a few of them.  Here is a nice map showing most of the places in Tanjung Sepat: Map Link.  You can get the print out of this map easily in the shops at Tanjung Sepat.

Tanjung Sepat, the town with nice beach

The first place that we visited is a dragon fruit farm which is called Multi-Rich Pitaya Sdn. Bhd.  If you never see a dragon fruit or the plant before, you can come here to experience it but there is not much to see here as it is just dragon fruit plant.  If you have seen it, I would recommend to skip this place to save time for other places.

The dragon fruit plant, looks like cactus with its thorns.

Spotted this grasshopper resting on don't know what tree branch.

Multi-Rich Pitaya also sells dragon fruit probiotics drinks which can help to increase the good bacteria in your stomach and improve your intestinal environment.  We didn't try this as the ice cream looks more delicious.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The dragon fruit ice cream.  Very light dragon fruit taste and not too sweet.

We didn't spend long time here and we went to find our lunch spot which is a Bak Kut Teh shop.  Restaurant Ah Hock only opens for lunch and we were almost late for our Bak Kut Teh.  We manage to call the boss and luckily they were expecting some tourists group so they still can serve us.

Restaurant Ah Hock, easily found with Waze.  There is a Chinese temple beside it but I'm not sure how many temples are there at Tanjung Sepat.

The set meals with the Bak Kut Teh for 8 persons.

The dishes of Restaurant Ah Hock with the phone number to call.  We couldn't try all the dishes.

The interior of the Restaurant Ah Hock.  It is an open area and can be quite hot during the lunch, so find a table near the fan.

This is the place where they prepare your Bak Kut Teh.

After lunch at Restoran Ah Hock, we continue our journey to the Lover's Bridge which is the main attraction at Tanjung Sepat and one of the reason why we are here.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
On the way to the Lover's Bridge, we spotted this grocery shop which sell many traditional food.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
And this shop selling some ancient stuff such this sword and gramophone.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
They also sell Chinese wine here.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
And different kind of Coke.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
This is the Lover's Bridge which is very long for the fishermen to get to their boat.  Didn't meet any fishermen today.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
A view from the Lover's Bridge.  The weather today is nice and sunny.  Do wear sun block or bring an umbrella.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Unfortunately the wooden part of the Lover's Bridge has collapsed and we couldn't go any further.

We saw another wooden bridge and decided to go over there.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
On the way we spotted this decorated bicycle.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
And this decorated tree.  Not sure what event is it for?

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
More decorated colorful bicycles with traditional umbrella.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
A local girl looking for seafood, can't really see what is it.  Perhaps it is bamboo snail that we eat at a steamboat restaurant?

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The wooden bridge stretching out into the sea.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
If not mistaken these wooden huts belong to the restaurant here.  Must be nice sitting here eating dinner and enjoying the sea breeze.

A view of the wooden bridge.  Nice spot for photography.

Laupoh and me posing on the wooden bridge.

After spending around 1 hour here, we went to our second reason of driving to Tanjung Sepat.  The Perniagaan Pau Hai Yew Heng (海友兴手工海南包) is a very famous pau (Chinese bun) shop here in Tanjung Sepat and do expect long queue of people buying fresh pau.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The long queue at Pau Hai Yew Heng.  But it is worth our time.

Pau Hai Yew Heng shop sells five types of filling. Got Mui Choy Pau which is preserved vegetable, Pork Meat Pau,Red Bean Paste Pau, Kaya Pau, Vegetable Pau and Peanut Pau.  They also sell Loh Mai Kai (glutinous rice with chicken) but we came here for the pau.

Freshly steamed pau from the kitchen.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The skinless pau.  Just kidding, it is a habit to remove the skin from the pau due to hygiene issue.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The vegetable pau, very delicious eaten hot.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
The mui choy pau (preserved vegetable), couldn't find this kind of filling in KL or PJ.  Very nice indeed.

Our next destination is the GanoFarm Sdn Bhd.  GanoFarm is a mushroom business place and has been in business for more than 25 years. They are one of the leading companies in mushroom products in Malaysia.  There are many types of mushroom here such as the expensive Ling Zhi Mushroom but with a lot of health benefits, the Abalone Mushroom which we eat with steamboat, Monkey Head Mushroom and Black Jelly Mushroom.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
GanoFarm also sells healthy mushroom juice which is low sugar, no coloring and no preservative.  Since we never get to try mushroom juice, so we get a bottle of Ling Zhi drink.  Tasted really bitter but I guess it is good for health.  According to the banner below, Ling Zhi can protect the liver and it is anti-oxidant, anti-allergic, anti-viral, anti-bacteria and anti-inflammatory.  Wow, so many anti no wonder it is so bitter.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
All kind of healthy drink at GanoFarm such as Ling Zhi, Black Jelly, Wheat Grass, Snow Jelly, Aloe Vera and Roselle.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
I think this is Abalone Mushroom.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
This mushroom should be Lingzhi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidium).

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Not sure what mushroom type is this.  Looks like younger Abalone Mushroom.

GanoFarm is worth to visit if you are in Tanjung Sepat, for the bitter LingZhi drink, of course.  There are other products too which you can refer in their website's products section: http://www.ganofarm.com/products/

Our next stop is the Kuan Wellness Ecopark, which promotes Green Heart, Green Life.  Kuan Wellness is actually a bird's nests cultivation place with more than 10 years of experience.  Kuan Wellness also processes the bird's nests for retailing and exporting them.

Our final destination at Tanjung Sepat is our dinner place which is the Golden Sea Restaurant (黄金海岸) at Pantai Morib.  Golden Sea Restaurant is a Chinese seafood restaurant located just beside the beach of Panta Morib and you can enjoy the golden sunset while eating your crabs.

A view of the open area restaurant.  When it get dark there is a lot of mosquitoes, so bring some insect repellent if mosquitoes like your blood.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
Must be nice sitting here and reading with the sea breeze.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
We ordered this lala which is fresh and delicious.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
We also ordered this crab bee hoon.  Nice but too bad the crab are rather small.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip
This Kam Heong crab is not really nice for me and the crab is rather small too.  Maybe it is not crab season.
