Kenyir Lake (Part 1)

Hello, all! My next budget trip i'm going to tell u about is 'My Kenyir Lake Trip'. This time we went there with a family friend.  Before i start, let's look at some info about Kenyir.

Tasik Kenyir or Kenyir Lake is an artificial lake located in the state of Terengganu in northeast Malaysia created in 1985 by the damming of the Kenyir River to create the Sultan Mahmud Power Station. Kenyir Lake is also home to numerous species of freshwater fishes and exotic wildlife”.
Adapted from: Wikipedia Online

The distance from my house to Kenyir is approximately 430km. Wow!!! Jaoh tuh....So, we decided to break the trip into 2. Actually, if we departed in the morning, we should made it to Kenyir by evening, but since we departed from home after lunch, so we arrived at the east coast quite late in the evening. 

Stop by at Mesra Mall to buy grocery for the trip
Gerai Kak Lah: Sedap betol keropok lekornya... Dekat rm20 kami
Berehat sambil makan2 kepok...

 After eating, we drove around the place to find a place to stay the night. Carik punya carik jumpa satu banglo nih, satu malam rm200. Bolehla...ada 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms. So, we checked in, couldn't remember the exact place but definitely we were already in T'nganu. 
The next day, after checking out, we continued our journey to Kenyir.
Ni la rupa banglo yg kami sewa malamnya...
Had our brunch, nasi kukus + sirap = RM5 (pakej dah tu...)

Enjoying our meal, very tasty! The authentic T'nganu delicacy

In front of the stall, kenyang dah...
In 2 hours, we were already at the jetty. I had called the supervisor beforehand and he asked me to call him, one hour before we reached the jetty. I did what was told and he promised to pick us up at 2pm.

This way to Kenyir 
Before we arrived in Kenyir, we stopped by at a fishing shop
to buy some baits.
View of the jetty from the parking lot. There are ample parking
space for u to park your car at the jetty. 
While waiting for the boat, isik tangki dulu..
Ikan patin kat jetty, 1st class!
Kids were the bz ones

Already in the boat. Look at our stuff, those were  mostly food!
Attention to All...There's no restaurant or grocery shops on the, u need to provide enough food for the whole stay..Let say if u really need to buy something, u can try to ask for help from the boys who work there as they always go to the mainland from time to time. Boleh jugakla kalau nak order food from the mainland, tp time sampainye x tau la..
In the boat..kejap je tripnyer..around 1/2 an hour gitu.. Yg bawak bot tu, En
Alias, the supervisor. Farah was so excited...she always will!
Snapped from the boat.
Pasal nama pon percutian bajet kan, so kami tinggal pon kat RPP Kenyir. RPP Kenyir ni hanya khas untuk government servants and pensioners only... Nama pon rumah kerajaan, so harganya memanglah sangat memuaskan hati. Our 2 bedrooms house which can accommodate more than 6 people only cost me rm50 per night. The house is fully furnished. All the cooking utensils are complete. Senduk, sudu, kuali, lesung, rice cooker, u name it..! Banglo ni w/pon murah tp ada Astro jugak tau.. Pendek kata sangat puas hatilah... Kalu ada apa2 yg u nak, u can just call or go to En Alias's house. He's the supervisor of the place. Vey nice man. Nak naik ke rumah ni, ada tangga yg sangat tinggi ala2 kat Batu Cave, mini Batu Cave ibaratnya. Pendek kata, kalu u dah naik rumah, bercintalah nak turun ke bawah...

Actually, i wanted to book for a 3 bedroom house but they were fully occupied. so, 2 bedrooms pon 2 bedrooms la... Tp w/pon 2 bedrooms, each bedroom has extra ma tresses under the bed. So, kids bolehla tergolek kat ruang tamu...

Semangat tuh nak fishing... Joran baru
Cik Adik ni pon nak cuba nasib gak...
Faris n Papa gigih menunggu
Ikan memang banyak tp semua hanya bermain di gigi air...sekor pon x terarik kat pancing's ok, we have 3 days here... boleh cuba lagik...

Our dinner (1st night)
If u're interested in booking the bungalows, u can check them out at .  Howover, u need to book very far ahead in advance as these bungalows are like hot cakes!

~To Be Cont in Part 2~


  1. Went there before and stayed at the kenyir lake resort , the place is place but rather spooky at night . Just imagine staying in a chalet in the middle of the jungle at night where you are the only hotel guest in the resort

  2. Ha..ha..yalah, now when u mentioned it, baru terpikir... Never thought of any paranormal phenomenal when we were there. In fact, the men went fishing @ midnight in the middle of nowhere. Since it was the school holiday, all the bungalows were occupied with residents and the house adjacent to ours was the workers' house...
