Go Jalan East Coast: Cherating via Terengganu

Date: 1st - 4th May 2014 (Thu - Sun)

(Still on) DAY 3 (Saturday)

Pandai Awe teka Teluk Ketapang! When one is in Teluk Ketapang, one just gotta try the ICT. No, nothing to do with information & communication technology. I'm talking about the Ikan Celup Tepung (fish dipped in batter).

When I arrived at 1ish, the place wasn't open yet :( but there's a couple restaurants next to it, filled with people. Selling ICT juga kalau tak silap. Since niat nak makan at ICT Haji Pok Long, we waited for it to open at 2.15 pm. Take note if you plan to eat here, be prepared to have late lunch.

ICT Haji Pok Long

Other snacks offered at ICT Haji Pok Long
Other things offered. This place is more suitable for tea than lunch.

Our choice at ICT Haji Pok Long
Coconut drinks, orange cordial, prawns, ikan pari (stingray), more prawns, and another type of fish not in pic.

Taste - #iLike crunchy food so yeah. But you gotta dip them in the sauce, else some of them might taste bland
Price - RM22 + RM4 (tarpao sausages & crabmeats)
Ambiance - family-friendly, a bit warm if you go during the day


Along the way I noticed lots of burned foliage. Panas sangat dah kut Malaysia ni.

Hello, Paka!

Finally arrived in Cherating just past 6 pm. Checked-in at The Legend Resort Cherating as I loved this place when I was younger. Especially love the rooms at ground floor, keluar sliding door terus lari pergi pantai.

Unfortunately, this time my experience wasn't so great. Imagine walking into this after a tiring long journey. What would YOU do?

The first room given to me. Maybe sebab I bayar murah =(

We didn't do much in Cherating. Skipped the Cherating Turtle Sanctuary and Batik Tjanting Class. Skipped dinner as well (too tired lazy) and spent the morning of Day 4 having leisurely breakfast and packing up.

After check-out, we went to Cherating Beach but there was nothing much worth mentioning aside from the souvenir shops and various backpackers inn and chalets. Do you know what's fun in Cherating Beach?
