Add a Point to the Map

A mini kampung built from wooden planks - no sight of concrete here. The air is dense with the smell of fish. Welcome to a fisherman's village. Located on the left side of Aseania, this little-known homestay option in Pulau Besar features bright green and orange two-storied houses. The family that owns the place is non-intrusive, although it is hard to tell if the entire village is one big family or several families as the houses are built very close together.

At RM50 per night, don't expect much. You get one double-bed so far gone that the springs eat into your back, a table fan and blankets. The toilet is aging but relatively clean. Rooms/houses come with a padlock, but there is no need to worry about theft here - these are hardworking people. While there's a small minimart, there is no restaurant so you'll have to get your meals settled at one of the resorts.
