Tumpat, Kelantan

I went back to my home town, it was a short trip, a day trip to be exact.

I visited Tumpat, Kelantan.

A short description on Tumpat, Kelantan.

Tumpat is a town and a district in Kelantan, Malaysia. Tumpat is situated at the end of the East Coast Line train operated by KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu) which links Kelantan to the western part of Peninsular Malaysia. This strategic location makes it the transportation hub of Kelantan.

Tumpat district is one of the smallest districts in Kelantan which an area of only 169.5 square kilometers. Many Siamese Malaysian live in this area.

I was in Tumpat to savour the wonderful delicious local Siamese delicacies.

After 1 1/2 drive from Kuala Lumpur, I reached Teluk Intan, Perak, Malaysia.

Teluk Intan formerly known as Teluk Anson is a city in Perak, Malaysia.

It is the centre of Hilir Perak district and the third largest town of Perak state. Although the name means “Diamond Bay”, the town is not located near a bay.

It is founded around the oxbow meander of the Perak River, making the town looks like it is near a bay.

The Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan or it is also known as Menara Condong Teluk Intan in Bahasa Malaysia, is one of Teluk Intan’s landmark.

It is equivalent of the world famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. It is located in the centre of the town of Teluk Intan, Perak.

The tower is slanted leftward, similar to the Tower of Pisa. It is 25.5 meters tall and from the outside it looks like it is an 8 story building, although inside it is actually divided into 3 different stories.

The tower was built in 1885 by Mr. Leong Choon Cheong for the purpose as a water tower, and as a beacon to guide ships into Teluk Intan Port.

Feeling hungry I stopped by to try the famous mee rebus. The all time famous Mastan Ghani Mee Rebus & Rojak mamak stall situated not far from the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan.

Quenching Bandung Ais to go along with my Mee Rebus

After the Mee Rebus and also the quenching Bandung Ais I stopped by the one and only famous Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun factory to buy some packets back to Kuala Lumpur.

The all time famous Liew Kee Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun

“The Factory” making the Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun

The Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun, soft boiled noodle stuffed with seasoned pork. It is very different from the traditional Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun which usually stuffed with shrimps or pork and serve wet. The Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun is normally served dry and eaten with some green chili pickles.
Must try!

While I was there I had some other Chinese Street Food cruise.
