Lumut the Naval City

Lumut is a small marine city located in the state of Perak . It has recently been declared as the Naval City which stations one of the biggest naval bases in the west coast of Malaysia Peninsular consisting of ports and navy quarters.

Being located nearest to the Pangkor Island, Lumut is considered as the main gateway to the Island Resort. Visitors to the Island can take a short ferry ride (about 40 minutes) from Lumut Jetty to the main Jetty at Pangkor Island.

The streets and shops in Lumut city are normally busy at all times day and night. Due to the demand from tourists and local visitors, there are some grocery shops, souvenirs shops, shops selling marine products and restaurants along the main streets and the Lumut Waterfront that open 24 hours. Presumably, Lumut can be considered as one of the cities that never sleep.

At day time, there were plenty of activities visitors could get indulge in such as Jungle trekking, Hiking, Snorkelling, Scuba Diving, Fishing, Extreme Sport Activities etc.

Not wanting to miss the excitement, we stayed up late until 3.00am to see the life telecast of the European football in one of the mamak restaurant at the Lumut city centre. As usual, the main dishes such as Roti Canai and Teh Tarik were the tickets to grant us sticking on our seats until the end of the game.

We left our kids to play in the water park at Teluk Batik in the next morning. Even though the facilities provided were not as complete as compared to Sunway Lagoon Theme Park in Subang Jaya, they seemed to enjoy playing in the huge pool consisting of slides and variety of water sprouts anyway.

We left the small city for a short visit to Ipoh the capital city of Perak to continue the remaining series of our so called family tour.
