38. Kampung Ayer
At the riverbanks around the mosque were plenty of rough-looking stilt-houses. At first, we didn't dare to venture there, but after reading about the Kampung Ayer in our guidebook we took a boat taxi across the river and walked around for about an hour. To our surprise, it was not nearly as rough as it seemed from a distance. Most of the houses had running water, air-con and electricity! The heavily swaying plank walks was the scariest part of our adventure at Kampung Ayer.
