Kuala Terengganu - seberang takir and around

| Day Tours ...

Seberang Takir

Another village you can get to from the K.Terengganu jetty is Seberang Takir. If you wish to walk around a fishing village where you can watch women at work in little shops or at home, this is the place to visit. There are frequent riverboats to the village and can be taken from the Terengganu Ferry Terminal, just round the corner of Jalan Bandar. The 3minute ride on the riverboat costs 50sen each way. Buy your ticket at the ticket booth by the jetty.

cooking keropok lekor

Once you get off at Seberang Takir's jetty, head for Kampung Hujung Tanjung. There are about 50 families living in the village and most of them are involved in some form of cottage industry to supplement their lifestyle.

Drying fish

From batik printing, keropok lekor and prawn cracker making, drying fish in the sun to packing for export: all done here. You can also catch the fishermen coming in with their catch in the early afternoons or late evenings. Sometimes as you look out into the horizon, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the regulars - a large family of dolphins playing not far from the Seberang Takir.

Bukit Puteri (Princess Hill)

An astrologer pointed out to Baginda that the mole on his chest was a chart to his destiny that one day he would be the ruler of Terengganu. In 1839, Baginda Omar overthrew his cousin, Sultan Muhammad and successfully captured the fort after 3 attempts.As predicted, Baginda finally ascended the throne.

One night, having heard about the astrologer's prediction, Baginda Omar's older brother stole into the fort and bit off the mole, believing that the loss of the mole would have meant loss of the throne. That surely, didn't work out quite as his brother expected (?!!!) - instead Baginda had the fort rebuilt and fortified - loaded with a number of canons for protection against his enemies, which included even his family! This was where he lived during the first years of his reign.

A short climb to the peak reveals a small fort dating from the early 19th century. Baginda spent much of his early days as the ruler of Terengganu, discussing war strategies with his generals on a raised platform called a 'singgahsana' as seen still at the fort. Here, a large bell sits comfortably on its hold. It was commissioned during the reign of Sultan Zainal Abidin III in the year 1908 and was used to sound alarm in times of emergency - such as enemy attacks, fire and even people running amok (wild) in the streets.

The bell, the 'singgahsana' and a few canons have survived years of fighting and can be seen at Bukit Puteri. However, many of the original canons were taken back to Siam (Thailand) by the Siamese when they ruled Terengganu from 1843 -1845. Apart from the remains mentioned, there is not much to see except that for the nice view of the waterfront. It's a good place to rest under the shady trees during hot afternoons if you have already exhausted your itinerary.


Bed runners such as this contains a mixture of contemporary and traditional designs.

Just outside of Kuala Terengganu lies Chendering, a large light industrial area for small home grown companies dedicated to producing fine Terengganu handicraft. One such company is Bibah's Songket in Kampung Rhu Rengeh. Hajjah Habibah spends most of her time between her home and her factory just a short walk away. Songket weaving is her forte and she produces some of the best songket kains in Malaysia. Her clientele are the who's who in Malaysia from royalties to politicians and high-powered business people. However, she also caters to anyone who takes a keen interest in songket weaving and the Malay culture that has been woven into the traditions of such craft. She is just as passionate about batik painting as she is about songket weaving but now only paints batik in her free time and for pure creative pleasure.

Rattan basketware remains popular with locals

Her dedication to songket has led her to reintroduce the traditions of weaving into the homes of the womenfolk living in villages close by. For her weavers who have left their villages after marriage and now live far away, she encourages them to continue to supplement their living by setting up looms in their homes and continuing to support them by sending them work. Bibah hopes that the Malay Songket will one day return as a symbol of cultural identity as it was generations ago.
