On the border of Malacca and Negeri Sembilan is the district of Tampin. This historic town has a rich pre-war history with the local church persisting through the ages. Infrastructure has continued to grow over the years which has evolved Tampin into a quaint destination filled and surrounding by greenery and charming old-world architecture. Here we will be looking at what there is to do and eat in Tampin as well as where to stay.
Due to this lucrative position, Tampin has cut the travelling time for motorists heading to Singapore and those heading north to Kuala Lumpur. With multiple places of worship housing amazing monuments, roadside stalls serving up amazing dishes and scenic views, Tampin slows down life to a relaxed pace.
Simple living at its best, Tampin does not have any high rise buildings. The town is simplistic and everything is within convenient distance of everything else. Hotels, apartments and villas are minimalist but lack nothing in terms of amenities.
Those who tend to live with a spirit of sport adventure will love the fact that Tampin is so close to many hiking trails and mountain climbs. Be sure to pack your own tents, camping and cooking equipment, as well as some insect and rat repellent when pitching your campsite.
The Church of St. John Vianney is a notable landmark which was first erected before the war. St. John Vianney is known as the patron saint of “tramps” and brought about massive transformation within the community. This church has been used to spread hope, love, faith and learning within the Christian religion, while the English education it has supplied over the years has been invaluable.
It takes roughly half a day to hike up Gunung Datuk, otherwise known as Mount Datuk. The 2900-foot elevation is a hike which takes about two ups up and less when you return down the mountain. Leading you through a tranquil stream, over twisted tree roots and past a dilapidated gazebo, the trail is fascinating. The open summit is well worth the excursion. Steel ladders allow you to climb to the very top of the boulders which sit at the top of the mount.
Tampin is an area which is fantastic for those who like hiking and climbing. South-west of the mukim Gemas is Gunung Ledang, or Mount Ophir. At 4,186-feet, this is a climb for the experienced. As the highest mountain in Malaysia, this is an extremely popular spot for amateur climbers.
