Kemaman is situated within the borders of Terengganu. It is neighboured by Pahang in the south and Dungun in the north. Though a small town, it is rich in natural resources – contributing palm oil, tin ore and timber. While most locals are settled inland and farming a common activity and source of income, the coastal part of the district produces a fine catch of salted fish and anchovies.
