The Era hotel in the only guest house and bed and breakfast facility in Lumut. Most travelers coming to Lumut take a straight ferry to Pulau Pangkor. Just a few people realize Lumut itself has a few things to offer to the travelers.

In fact, as located opposite of the bus AND with hardly noise from the surrounding streets and bus station there's little excuse NOT to stay in this nice, friendly and clean place.

Lumut less then a decade ago

Pieter Kruger from South Africa has lived and worked for a few years in Lumut. He saw a very different Lumut as we know it today. When I came to Lumut, in 2003, the old ferry was no longer in service. Yet, Pieter went to Pangkor with the old ferry.

He was kind enough to send us some photos of his days in Lumut, not even 10 years ago. But it has dramatically changed!

The Dinding River

Few pay attention to the Dinding river when they arrive in Lumut. They are too busy getting the ferry to Pulau Pangkor. Fair enough. However, it is worth to get a boat and visit the swamps and mangrove forest in the area.
