Pantai Beserah beach
of Pantai Beserah, some 8km north of Kuantan on the way to Terengganu, employ an
unusual method of transporting their catch from the seaside: water buffaloes! You would not
normally expect to see these beasts of burden outside of the rice fields, but why not – they are
water buffaloes after all.
The catch is taken to the processing areas where it is turned into the area’s most famous
product: salted fish.
There is also a batik factory and many cottage industries, producing items from seashells as well
as snacks like the popular keropok lekor.
