Kampong Kemaman Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 36 photos


Terengganu is one of the Malaysian state which is endowed with a wealth of charming and refreshing natural landscapes. She has beaches, exotic islands, lush virgin tropical jungle, quaint fishing villages, dazzling waterfalls and many, many more. Her miles and miles of white, sandy beaches and crystal clear water stretches throughout its 225 km coastline, extending from Besut in the north to Kemaman in the South. Her islands are among the most picturesque and fascinating in the country. From its myriad of colourful pastimes which include batik printing and songket weaving to the rapturous celebration of its many generations of cultural and traditional heritage, Terengganu is indeed a very blessed state.

The Kemaman district developed tremendously during the mid-90's economic boom, when housing projects mushroomed overnight. Modern shops replaced the quaint old wooden shops and roads were widened to accommodate increased traffic. But, the slowdown in the economy has left an obvious mark on the towns. Apart from a stopover to refuel and for some food, Kemaman has little to offer. Kemaman Port is the main port where large oil tankers anchor and not too far away, the Star Cruises dock at their private jetty close to the Awana Kijal Resort.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A gateway to Terengganu state through Kuantan.
  • Cons:Only a stopover for food.
  • In a nutshell:A Malay town in Terengganu famous for stuffed crabs.

    Nice restaurant tips. Bring back fond memories of eating crabs in stuffed shells and durians in Terengganu. Cheers, SL

    According to the staff in Kopitiam Hai Peng, the Kemaman Kopitiam in Kuantan is not their branch.

    Tong Juan. Expensive. Go Hotel Kemaman or those next to Tong Juan. Kemaman Kopitiam expensive also. Try once is enough. Kemaman Kopitiam has a branch in Kuantan
