Kampung Ayer (Water Village)
There are a few stilt villages that can be found on this island. Kampung Patau-Patau and Kampung Bebuloh Laut are two fine examples. Clusters of Malay-styled wooden houses on stilts are built out over the sea and are connected to the land by raised walkways. Currently, efforts are made to ensure that these scenic water villages are not bypassed by the rapid development that is transforming the island. A modern water village complex has been built to cater to thousands of visitors. It is facilitated with seafood restaurants, shopping malls, and a boardwalk. Visitors can also stay in waterfront chalets or enjoy a host of water sports activities.
