Hear From Others

This visit gave me a sense of the culture and lifestyle of the East coast Malay communities and the aboriginal people. The family remains the basic unit of society and their existence is in compliance to the laws of nature. In this Zeitgeist of fast-paced technological obsolence, there is much to learn from their customs and traditions.


The Pahang Art Museum displays some of the regions finest art work and also works closely with artisans to ensure that the old skills are passed down to the new generation and continue to flourish. It is a must visit for anyone who is interested in eastern art and textiles.


Well, despite the size and the number of exhibits, it was a fun outing for us.  We were able to explore and got to know new cultures within a short period of time.
