We found the driving direction in OneMotoring's forum:
- From Tuas checkpoint, continue on LebuhRayah highway and take exit to Gelang Patah.
- Once in the exit, follow a slip road to your left. Drive until you reach a T-Junction (a left and right turn) and turn right.
- After you have turned right at the junction, it is quite a distance before you reach another T Junction (a left and right turn). Turn left and after about 45 minutes - at about 80Kmh, you will reach the a Cross junction. Going Straight would be Pontian Kechil, Turn right would bring you to JB. So you turn left to KuKup.
- Before you reach Pontian Kechil, you would pass by a town called Pekan Nenas (Pineapple Town) just follow the main road until you reach the Cross-Junction.
- Up until this stage, you can look out for signs pointing to Kukup or Kukup Golf Resort.
- Once you have turned left, just drive for about another 30 minutes at 80kmph. you should then reach an archway that says - Welcome to Kukup.
There are clear and easy to follow signs so it is pretty easy to get to Kukup.
Below are some pictures that we took of the area:
We had a small lunch at one of the restaurants (too bad I can't remember the restaurant's full name), it had blue frame and is the first restaurant if you look to the left when you exit from the ferry terminal. We ordered lobsters, steamed prawns and vegetable. The lobsters are actually balmain bugs (that's what they're called in Oz). The food is quite nice, but there was a little bit too much MSGs on the lobsters. Though it was priced OK, I didn't think that it was that cheap. Overall, it's still a good place to go for tourists and expats, so I would recommend checking it out for the experience. You can also take a boat ride to check out the area which we did not have the time to do unfortunately. I was happy to have checked out a Johor's popular destination and it was a pleasant relaxing trip.

“The project will be a significant one and Sunway hopes to differentiate itself from other developments in Iskandar with a unique offering, targeting very much the Singapore market,” said one source.
“It will be more innovative than what Sunway has in Malaysia,” the source added.
Sunway eyes Iskandar expansion
Quick update on a cloudy Sunday & this is my 1st ever post from new Samsung android phone blogger app, i hope it works!
Time flies really quickly and in a blink of an eye, it's surprising to realise that we have been living in East Ledang for 1.5 years!There has been quite a lot of development around this area and I took some pictures yesterday to show the progress of UEM's projects.
There's a new highway which connects us to JB city now (though i've not tried this route) and phase 2 & 8 (i think) of East Ledang looks almost completed - well at least from the exterior. The Ujana apartment seems to be going on well as well, but i dont particularly like the design :)
By end of this year, we should have a lot more neighbour Yeay! Hopefully not too crowded though.
I will continue to take and share pictures of this area's progress. In the meantime, have a great Sunday everyone! Happy birthday to David & Jason.
