Malaysia's Minister of Home Affairs Muhyiddin Yassin said plans are initiated and advancing towards launching of ferry services between Singapore and Kukup, Johor. The services would help transport tourists from Tuas in Singapore to Kukup more efficiently, and bring in more tourism revenue with the initiative.
Kukup, in Tanjung Piai, is a popular tourist destination across the globe and most importantly for Singaporeans. Many of the tourists enjoy visiting Kukup's fishing village, exploring mangrove wetlands, strolling in the Johor National Park and shopping for local products available.
He added, "I've heard a few locals here asking why are there are no ferry services between Kukup and Tuas in Singapore because many Singaporeans love to visit Kukup to eat seafood and enjoy the many activities in the area,".
Mr. Muhyiddin pointed out that the gradual efforts to improve tourism accessibility to Tanjung Piai would create more jobs in the area for younger residents. Besides improving tourism prospects for Tanjung Piai, Mr. Muhyiddin also announced other goodies for the residents of Tanjung Piai.
