FISHING ON STILTS

Location: Pulau Aceh, Malaysia
1/15
DESCRIPTION:

 

Kelong is a malay word for a wooden offshore platform built primarily for fishing. They can be found only in this region of the world, Southeast Asia. As countries are getting urbanised, many kelongs were demolished to make way for modern fish farming methods. Nowadays only a handful are left and some of which are converted for anglers to stay onboard for leisure fishing.

 

It is an opportunity of a lifetime to experience this unique way of fishing in the middle of the sea, and yet enjoy the comfort of stable ground. To an angler who is proned to sea sickness, this will be a fishing paradise. It is a matter of time before this old fishing trade is totally gone. Hop on board now before it is too late.
