Ever wondered what a homestay experience at Pantai Suri, in Kelantan would be like? It certainly is an interesting discovery!
The journey to the small island of Kampung Pantai Suri is a 20 minutes' boat ride. The village sits at the estuary of the Kelantan River near Tumpat, and is near the South China Sea.
Greeted by a dozen ducks, quacking a cacophonic welcome, is a pleasant surprise as one sets foot on dry land at Pantai Suri Village.
The silent whisper of ripening paddy fields swaying gently in the wind greets visitors, as they step into Kampung Seterpa. Running barefoot, a small boy pushes his small tricycle across the beaten footpath at the edge of the paddy fields. A rooster crows loudly, breaking the deafening silence.
