A travel blogger by the name of Rick shared his experience traveling to Pontian, he said that Pontian Kechil (the town center or Pontian) is not a tourist destination where you will find shopping malls or theme parks. Pontian offers a different kind of experience for travelers who want to experience local lifestyle and culture away from all the touristy activities and crowds.
