TANJUNG SEPAT is one of the most prosperous districts in Selangor.
Located southwest of Klang, this fishing village is known for two things — fresh seafood and Bak Kut Teh.
It is also a popular destination for wedding shoots and one of the locations here called the 'Lover's bridge' is the village's main draw.
Apart from that, there is also a fungi farm that offers homestay services for tourists who prefer an overnight stay here.
You can find an array of products from mushrooms to the black fungus that are harvested daily for consumption in the Klang Valley.
In Tanjung Sepat village alone, there are several noteworthy places of interest such as the pau factory and seafood steamboat restaurant that caters mainly to visitors.
Highly recommended is a trip to the Hai Yew Hin coffeeshop (non-halal) which serves the best char siew pau and kopi-O peng (iced black coffee) in the village.
This is a popular haunt for day-trippers and is also perpetually packed. You can also take a look at how the pastry is made at a bakery opposite the coffeeshop.
For the adventurous type, the best way to see this fishing village is by cycling from Banting to Tanjung Sepat covering a distance of 29.1km.
Along the way, you can see some tourists on bicycles plying this route to access cities in the far South like Malacca and Johor.
The drive from Kuala Lumpur's city centre to this location is 88.3km via the Kesas highway.
For the tech savvy person, the GPS coordinates to Tanjung Sepat are: N 02 39 762, E 101 33 460.
