Batu Pahat Ferry Terminal

I had expected that the new ferry at Minyak Beku terminal would be busily transporting Batu Pahat male residents to Tanjung Balai, Indonesia to enjoy the flourishing flesh trade on that island. It is common knowledge that many males from Batu Pahat would drive to Kukup, Pontian to catch the ferry to Tanjung Balai. The developer of the Batu Pahat ferry terminal must have also thought of tapping into that market when the idea of a terminal was first mooted. However, the developer did not envisage that these horny males were a finicky bunch, preferring the safer option of leaving their vehicles at Kukup to avoid detection. The ferry service between Batu Pahat and Tanjung Balai has been aborted for lack of passengers. Now the ferry provides pleasure cruise to nowhere for a fee.

The completed chain of chalets remain empty of occupants. It is inconceivable that people would check into these chalets as there is little guests can do by way of recreation.
