KAMPONG LIFE

Tanjong Jara reveals a personal insight into the traditional Malay way of life that strongly reflects the strong sense of community here.

At the resort's beachfront gardens, on Saturday afternoon, tantalizing aromas fill the air as authentic local delights are served from kampong huts. Terengganu's kerepok lekor, a delicacy of deep fried fish, famous throughout the peninsula, and lemang, aromatic glutinous rice delicately smoked in bamboo, are served to be washed down with kopi kampong, the thick sweet local coffee of the region.

Try your hand at congkak, a highly addictive local board game or play a round of sepak takraw, a traditional woven rattan ball game. As noon slips into dusk, watch villagers practice silat, the ancient Malay martial art of deadly grace.
