Family Fun at Tanjung Ketapang & Tanjung Emas, Muar

Tanjung Ketapang and Tanjung Emas are two family-friendly places in Muar that I love to visit. They are clean, have lots of trees, and offer amazing views.

Tanjung Ketapang is a great place to go for a run. I can easily cover a 6 km distance while jogging there. There’s also a golf course and a mangrove park. Occasionally, you’ll see monkeys roaming freely here. Don’t worry, the monkeys here are friendly.

And there are two playgrounds. Since these playgrounds are located at the end of the park, not many people visit them, so we seldom bring our kid here. Tanjung Ketapang is also famous for its beautiful sunset view.

Tanjung Emas is another great place to visit with family. It has two playgrounds, a spacious pedestrian pathway by the Muar River, and a boat service that cruises along the river.

The food court at Tanjung Emas offers a variety of delicious Muarian dishes, such as Mee Bandung, Asam Pedas, ABC, and Lai Chi Kang. My favourite stall is Ah Tee Yong Tau Foo.

In the evening, around 4 PM onwards, you will see a few sellers in the square at Tanjung Emas selling toys and renting out toy cars. This makes it a great place to hang out with kids.

And at night, Tanjung Emas comes alive, lit up with beautiful lights. The toy sellers will still be here, and the square will be as lively as it was during the daytime, with families and their kids enjoying quality time together.

Clean and well-equipped public parks are important. I am grateful that Muar has these. Communities benefit from parks because they provide a safe gathering place for residents to enjoy nature. Parents can oversee their children’s play, and everyone can improve their mental and physical health through outdoor activities, all in a peaceful setting.

I think I have said this before. Muar is a clean town, and the locals here take great care of it. Even the toilets are clean. You are required to take off your shoes before entering the toilets at Tanjung Emas.

These are some pictures I have taken over the years at these two places. Here are the Google Maps links to Tanjung Ketapang and Tanjung Emas. Make sure to visit them when you’re in Muar!
