Before that, i have missed to joined the Federal Territory Blog Competition. So i want to trying my luck to joining it.

Initially number of participants not many and rival not as difficult as which. However on secretariat's hard work explore to nationwide and bill in media cause competition this widespread. Rival becoming increasingly violent. Many of the participants especially school and IPT student show very good ability. For open category, the situation very difficult .At the middle of competition rival, I'm feel despair and loosing the focus .

However due i can learn many matters and can increase many friends. For participant from Terengganu, they have many advantages compared us participant from outside. I have to go twice to Terengganu look for information. However because of limited time, not many information that able to be acquired.

Yet it is not a hurdle. I also more knowing Terengganu uniqueness compared previously. Not denying Terengganu is one so fascinating tourism destination.Whatever also the decision, blog this will continue updated to convey information to whole world. I also determined to continue to promote tourism destination all over Malaysia. As my additional had also built blog for Kedah State, Kelantan and Sabah.Whatever experience this precious.

(PANTAI RANTAU ABANG) RANTAU ABANG BEACH



In the 1960’s, Pantai Rantau Abang was made famous for being one of the six hatching sites in the world where giant leatherback turtles lay their eggs. Visitors from all over the world gathered here from May to September every year to watch this amazing moment. The turtle travels all the way to as far as Pacific Ocean and swims across to Pantai Rantau Abang just to lay their eggs.


Due to a number of factors such as the illegal use of drag nets in the prohibited fishing zones, indiscriminate disposal of plastic bags (jellyfish is part of turtle’s diet and suffocated from eating plastic bags that looks like a jellyfish from underwater). There are foreign fishermen who catch turtles for its meat and shells for souvenir products. These are a few contributing factors that led to the dwindling number of turtle landings in most part of the world. From the late 1980’s up until 2000, the Fisheries Department records the lessen number of landings. Now conservation efforts are undertaken by the state government in doing research on the turtles’ conservation and setting up turtle hatchery sites.
