Idyllic Islands Part VI

A kelong in between Pulau Tuba and Pulau Dayang Bunting. Kelong is a form of offshore platform built predominantly with wood. Kelongs are built by fishermen primarily for fishing purposes, although larger structures can also function as dwellings for them and their families. They are built without the need for nails, using rattan to bind tree trunks and wooden planks together. Source:

We went for another bike ride around the islands before we left.
