Tanjung Sepat: The fishermen’s village

posted by on 2009.04.20, under Food, Friends, Outing, Photography

On the 11th of April we went to this small town call Tanjung Sepat. It’s located near Banting, Sepang, and Morib. The little town was famous for it’s seafoods and Lover’s Bridge. Based on further findings on the internet, apparently there are more to the town. Based on our itinerary, we explored Tanjung Sepat. Hopefully you’ll like the photos.

There are 14 of us, Dom, Andrew, Siewmei, Yanny, Kokwai, Benchin, Ah Fai, Kokwai’s friend A, Sherinna, Behn and Eddy. Aivy and Aivy’s friend A came later in the trip. We gathered ourselves at Subang 7am in the morning and depart, based on the directions we gathered here and there on how to go to Tanjung Sepat.

The must see when you visit Tanjung Sepat.

Why gathered so early to go Tanjung Sepat? Because of the Bak Kut Teh breakfast there.

Next to the restaurant, there’s this old Mahjong joint. Must be one of the popular places among elderly uncles.

Dom, first time joining us for a photography trip.

This, is the normal Bak Kut Teh.

What is this? I also not very sure. White Bak Kut Teh?

First time seeing this one. Har (prawn) Kut Teh? Hahaha.

The town of Tanjung Sepat. Having their weekly pasar pagi.

Entrance of the Lover’s Bridge. I think this is setup by the shop keeper next to the bridge to make the place look nicer.

By 11am, we’ve reached the Lover’s Bridge day time edition. Which you can see, a lot of beaches and you can go down and walk walk and take pictures of the trees.

After the cement 1st half of the bridge, there’s the more old-skool wooden continuation.

Proof of visiting for Siewmei.

REAL fisherman coming back from fishing trip. With not a lot of catch.

Filtering of fishes begin here.

There are dead fishes along the bridge. But this one is the cutest. Hahaha.

After a hot walked on the bridge, we venture under the bridge. It is amazingly cooling under the bridge.

Dom at the beginning of the tunnel.

The bridge is quite long.


Bird shooting?

Siewmei, my free model again. Hehe.

Dangerous animals roam the land.

Going home from work.

Desert Dom.

The couple walking on Lover’s Bridge.

While we’re on the way to the land of mushroom, we stopped here and took some pictures. This is where they pimp their ride i think.

After a very short distant, we’ve reached the farm where they grow mushrooms. This, is red mushroom.

This, is what you put in your steamboat.

This my friend, based on Jook’s search on Wiki, it’s call the Mushroom of Imortality.

After the Mushroom Farm, is about time for our lunch. So we went to this place call Ah Mei’s restaurant. It’s said that they have seafood Maggi noodles.

It’s true! Maggi with assorted stuffs you can add such as fishballs, foo jook, vege and other stuffs la. Not really seafood seafood, but you get the point la.

While waiting for our food, Siewmei playing with Eddy’s Rolleiflex.

This is what I ordered. Tomyam Mian Fen Gao. Weird combination, but it was quite okay.

Look closely what they worshipping! Hahaha.

This is the very famous Pau in Tanjung Sepat. It’s call Hai Yew Heng. The Pau aunty arranging the dough nicely on the table just to be flattened later.

Soft soft dough that will be made into soft soft Pau.

Pau aunty said they can sell 1 thousand paus per day. 1 Pau RM2, you do the math.

Flattened dough.

Anybody can come here and look at the Pau making process. Pretty clean.

And here’s the finished Paus. Very nice and soft.

Lovely shot of Sherinna and Eddy.

After having the Pau for tea time, we walked to the next lane and there’s the coffee making place. From the coffee fruit, to drying it, grinding it, and into coffee powder.

Siewmei holding a coffee fruit.

Coffee beans in the process of drying.

Coffee for visitors to test, served in a chinese tea cup. Unique.

Siewmei first time drinking coffee from chinese tea cup.

After some lepaking in the town and some rain later. We went back to the Lover’s Bridge to wait for dinner. As you can see now, there’s no more beach for us to walk.

A seafood restaurant next to the beach.

No nice sunset to capture.



Heading to earn some living.

Kids and adults come here to enjoy fishing.


Before we head back, we had our dinner at Hong Seng Bay Seafood Restaurant. The food there was good and the pricing was affordable. There are photos of the dishes, but there’s just too many photos in this entry already. Keke.

Everyone was tired, but we had fun that day. Where will be the next kampung we visit?


Nice!!! haha….We will go back for the seafood again!!!

We might have 5-6 pax. Me and my wife, 3-4 children.(10-18yrs old)

thank you

Owen Lim ( May 12, 2010 at 4:30 pm )

Hi Owen,

Thanks for dropping by. I can’t really advice you in your planning to go there because usually we went there for 1 day trip.

But what I know is there are a few of those resorts for you to stay along the whole stretch of road between Sepang Gold Coast to Morib. For food, I recommend Tanjung Sepat as they have some local delights and some not too expensive but fresh seafood there. There are seafood around Bagan Lalang area as well. For Morib and Sepang Gold Coast, they are mostly quiet beaches.

Tanjung Sepat is a small town, if you spend 1 whole day there, you’d probably finished exploring it. But please be prepared for the hot weather. It is really that hot.

Hope that helps. 😀
Have a nice trip there.

Cheeheng ( May 15, 2010 at 4:15 pm )

when & where is you next trip, I’m camera enthusiasm too.

BRIAN FOONG ( July 25, 2010 at 7:15 am )

Hi, May i know where to have the tom yam pan mee, maggi mee & bak kut teh?

Thank you

Valerie Lim ( August 20, 2010 at 5:54 pm )

nice photos! thanks for sharing! :)

Valerie Lim ( August 20, 2010 at 5:54 pm )

Hi Valerie, the tomyam pan mee / maggi mee should be at lorong 4 there. I forgot which road is the bak kut teh already. But shouldn’t be far away, you can always ask the locals there, they’re very friendly.

Cheeheng ( August 22, 2010 at 7:47 pm )

Aivy, surprise to see you pic here LOL….
