I won’t call Tampin a city although it is a district centre by itself. Tampin is quite big but somehow still lack of high rise building for me to call it a city.Tampin strikes my attention with very colorful town-wide repainting of striking colors and also because I lost my direction every time I drove pass the Tampin.more
In geographical terms, Tampin has been an important stop along North-South trunk road. There are many road side stalls dotted along outskirt of the town. They serve anything from teh tarek to double boiled soup....Very international. It's been a culture where these stalls opened well into the night. Many truck drivers (heading to Gemas & Segamat) stopped along these stalls to get recharged. Naturally, the locals patronise these stalls as well and they provide generous parkings.
Eversince the highway by-passed the lovely town, the stalls have transformed themselves by providing free projection screen entertainment showing anything from football to educational program about deep sea creatures.
Among the places i recommend are stalls along trunk road leading to seremban (near taboh naning & lake garden), stalls along trunk road leading to Gemas, food court on top of bus station, also stalls outside railway station.
Eating at these places is a enjoyable experience because you can enjoy the cooling breeze decending down from Tampin Mountain and not to mention the fantastic night view of the transmitting tower/building on top of the mountain.....the bright lights on top of the mountain resembles an active volcanoe especially after rain.
No one gets bored or hungry in Tampin throughout the night!
Dress Code: Anything goes!
