21/07/2022 11:21 PM

TUMPAT, July 21 (Bernama) -- The Kampung Laut Heritage Site project worth RM20 million has been fully completed and started receiving visitors earlier this month.

East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) Project Implementation Division general manager Arizan Arifin said the 1.04-hectare project on the banks of Sungai Kelantan is now an attraction for domestic and international visitors.

He said the project involved two phases of construction, namely the first phase of Laman Warisan Serunding while the second phase was Laman Warisan Seni.

“Since its opening earlier this month, the Kampung Laut Heritage Site has received local and international tourists.

"Around 300 visitors come on weekdays and the number increases to 700 visitors on weekends. This location is very relaxing with scenic views and was built with safety features for visitors with the construction of flood barriers," he said.

He told reporters during a media visit to Kampung Laut, here today.

Commenting further, Arizan said, among the attractions of Kampung Laut Heritage Site is the relocation of the 400-year-old Kampung Laut Mosque to its original location after being moved away 50 years ago.

"Kampung Laut Mosque is part of phase two of Laman Warisan Seni, we are taking back this mosque to be relocated to its original location here after 50 years in Nilam Puri, to be relocated with the original community of Kampung Laut," he said and added that the earlier relocation was due to major floods.

According to him, apart from that, there are 11 shoplots with nine entrepreneurs selling serunding, dodol and gelembung buaya (a traditional cake) at Laman Warisan Serunding, while Laman Warisan Seni houses a total of 12 handicraft, batik, calligraphy and kite traders.
