DATARAN Kampung Banggol Cempedak in Kuala Terengganu is another tourist attraction that will draw folk to Terengganu.
Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said the establishment of the
recreation centre on the banks of Sungai Terengganu was in line with the second strategy of the National Tourism Policy 2020-2030 which encouraged the promotion of unique rural destinations.
“The development of products and packages such as Dataran Kampung Banggol Cempedak is also in line with the policy’s goal
to make Malaysia a top eco-tourism destination of the world, ” she said when launching the centre.
“I hope and pray that the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme will give a ray of hope to the country’s tourism industry, ” she added.
Meanwhile, state tourism, culture and information technology committee chairman Ariffin Deraman said the 1.2-hectare Dataran Kampung Banggol Cempedak is also known as Riverview Square.
He said the recreation centre offers river bathing, camping, kayaking, shrimp-catching at night, Terengganu songket-making and traditional local cuisine. – Bernama
