Hmm…Why Piai❓⁉️

It’s named after a local fern 🌿 plant aka Paku Piai 🌿 in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language. This plant is capable of living in brackish water conditions i.e. scattered in this park🙂

Tanjung Piai 🌿 is the southern most point of Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 & the southern most tip of Mainland Asia 🌎too with the borders of shorelines of Malaysia 🇲🇾 , Indonesia 🇮🇩 & Singapore 🇸🇬

Lots of tourists 👫👭👬 travelling to here, just to capture a photo 📸 with this globe 🌐 shaped monument & plaque which marked the southernmost point😍

Photo 28-01-2018, 2 29 07 PM.jpg

Guess what❓⁉️

Tanjung Piai 🌿 as a coastal mangrove also being granted in Jan 2003 with the status🎖of an internationally important Ramsar Convention site👏🏻

It has high socio-economic value for fisheries 🐟🐟 especially mudskippers aka ikan belacak in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language😀

Photo 28-01-2018, 11 50 06 AM.jpg

The national park officers 👩🏻‍💼👨🏻‍💼shared about the breeding story of mudskippers🐟. Apparently the male 🚹🐟 mudskippers need to build a mud house 🏠 (refer photo 📸 below) to attract the female 🚺🐟mudskippers. Ha…Ha…Interesting facts learnt😅😂🤣
