Marang is the jump-off point for ferries to Pulau Kapas. Once a quiet fishing town, much of Marang’s seaside charm has disappeared beneath a recent flood of new buildings. It’s still a nice place to hang out for an evening on the way to or from Kapas, especially in summer, when numerous exotic fruit trees are in season. If you are in town on Sunday be sure to check out the excellent market, which starts at 3pm near the jetty.
