I believe I mentioned in much earlier Sarawak Entry on Koperasi or Co-operative activities, Jom Jelajah Koperasi this time around took us to homestay in Alor Limbat, Terengganu where we get to experience the locals’ livelihood, their produce and unique delicacy. Not only that, they also shared with us on how Malaysia Co-operative Societies Commission (Surahanjaya Koperasi Malaysia) work hand-in hand in assisting them on the community progress. With great leadership, Koperasi Alor Limbat Kampungstay is set to evolve, develop and grow at a dynamic speed.
Located in Marang district in the beautiful state of Terengganu Darul Iman with population of 1000, approximately 25km from Kuala Terengganu, this beautiful kampung got its name from a catfish family (ikan keli) which is called ikan limbat. Moving abreast with the economic advancement coupled with opportunity to expend and excel, Koperasi Alor Limbat started Kampungstay to generate a new source of income to the locals via cottage and rural tourism which indirectly opening its doors to domestic and international crowd. This foresight pushed the local to also market their local produce such as Keropok Lekor or Lekor Chips and Madu Kelulut (Stingless bee honey) not only in the local market but also internationally. In fact, export for madu kelulut has reached a level where demand exceed supply, something to be proud of.

If you are looking for a quick and short getaway with a different touch, a touch of local flavours, untouched beauty, fresh and clean air, do give Alor Limbat Kampustay a try. Who knows, you might just fell in love and decide to stay here for an additional week or two, or a month. Terengganu will never fail to surprise you. Trust me.
