Prawn World Udang Galah Center Special Offer for PMPP Members

Fishing for freshwater prawns or Udang Galah is quite an interesting experience. Last week Mr Arumugam and I went to try it out and managed to get 11 Udang Galah between us in an hour. After speaking to the owner Mr Azhar, we have managed to get a special rate for PMPP members.

The normal rate is 10 Ringgit an hour, on producing the PMPP membership card, members are entitled to an extra 15 minutes per hour

All the equipment and bait are provided. The special prawn rod, hook and float plus fresh chicken heart for bait. Catching them is not that easy, but the pond is well stocked and kids can have fun catching them too. A nice pastime for the whole family and you can cook up the prawns after that too! In addition since it is indoors it doesn't matter if it rains.

On weekdays the Prawn World is open from 12pm to 12.30am. On weekends, they open earlier at 10am.

Prawn World is located along Jalan Gelugor, after the RECSAM teacher's college, before the Perodua center.
