Previously: Day 2 – Hafiz Mangrove Tour
Whilst on our way back to the jetty after the mangrove tour ended, I saw an optical phenomenon on the sky known as ‘Halo’.
“Halo is an optical phenomenon produced by ice crystals creating colored or white arcs and spots in the sky.”
Wow! Fascinating sky view! Our next destination after the mangrove tour was to Limbong Art, one of the famous batik schools in Cherating. As Limbong Art is situated at Kampung Cherating Lama, on the same road as Hafiz’s Cherating Activities, I decided to walk with several other bloggers.
As we walked along the road, we saw several backpackers walking around the area. And we also saw the signboard to Kam Surf Shack. Well, actually Cherating is one of the very few places in Malaysia where you can actually surf! I did not know about that fact before this trip. ;D
Excerpt from the Legend Cherating pamphlet:
Kampung Cherating Lama was known as the Surfer’s Haven since the 1970s where surfers all over the world return to Cherating every year from October to March to test out the waves oft the South China Sea. The waves break at 1ft to 5ft, making surfing a popular past time for novices and old timers alike.
If you want to try the waves of the South China Sea, come over to Cherating during the monsoon season. Well, I do not surf and do not even know how to surf. But, it is pretty amazing to know that you can actually surf in Malaysia. :D
A short 2-minute walk and we reached the entrance of Limbong Art.
Limbong Art is basically an art shop, selling ready-made Batik shirts and clothing. They also sell some wood carved art pieces which looks really nice but sometimes scary. Haha.
Here at Limbong Art, they provide Batik Tjanting classes, where visitors will be allowed to make their own batik with the staff ‘s guidance. The price for Batik Tjanting class is around RM 35 up to RM 75 +.
It is an amazing opportunity to paint and make your own batik because in Kuala Lumpur, there is no such place to do it. After all, wouldn’t it be nice to learn something new while on a getaway? ;)
Well, I did not try the batik tjanting class personally because to finish a batik tjanting may require up to 3 hours. But if I come to Cherating, no doubt I am going to try and make my own batik.
Open: Daily, 10 am – 10 pm
Price: RM 35- RM 75 +for batik tjanting class
Address: 2/1000 Kampung Cherating Lama, 26080 Kuantan, Pahang
