Pulau Keladi is not a place where you get to enjoy beautiful sandy beaches. Instead it is home to two interesting tourist attractions which are the birth place of Tun Abdul Razak, Malaysia’s second Prime Minister and the Pahang Silk Weaving Center, which gives you a complete end-to-end insight into the complicated art of silk weaving.
The Pulau Keladi Cultural Village offers a look at the house where the 2nd Prime Minister of Malaysia grew up in. The house itself is simple in design and very functional, so much so that you cannot but be impressed with the simple surroundings that Tun Abdul Razak, a leader who is still highly regarded and respected til today, was raised in.
Here comes an attraction for culture seekers – Pulau Keladi Cultural Village located about 15 minutes away from the royal town of the state, Pekan. This is the village where former Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak was born. While the village comprises mostly kampung-style houses, culture seekers will also find Tun Abdul Razak Memorial Hall and the Pahang Silk Weaving Centre here.
The Water Transportation Gallery is located in front of the Abu Bakar State Museum. It is a very interesting open boat museum. Water transportation played an important role in the past social and economic development of Pahang.
