Tour Guide for Nenasi 2009

This unassuming Malay fishing settlement has grown quite a bit since the 1960s but it is still the same 'kampung' Nenasi. The scattering of wooden shop houses that line the road to the beach still stand but most have satellite TV dishes sticking out at an angle to receive the likes of HBO, ESPN, and other channels.

A school house stands right on the beach front - lucky pupils! At the edge of the village the fishing pier is still standing with colourful boats tied to moorings. The brackish water of the river runs placidly. I wonder if it still offers a bounty of udang galah (freshwater king prawn) like it used to decades ago. The place must have been getting regular visitors these days as, surprisingly, there is a motel here - Motel Nenasi. It is very basic but sufficient to offer a place for the night.

What is there in Nenasi? Again, this is another location that offers peace and quite within the quaint setting of a Malay fishing settlement. Kampung Nenasi is halfway between the royal town of Pekan and Kuala Rompin - about 20 kilometres distance. From Kuantan it is about 91 kilometres.
