About the town & nearby attractions

Rompin is a small town developed mainly for the local plantation and small-holding communities. It has a Mosque, community hall, a daily wet and vegetable market, a range of shops and eating places, particularly at night and a bustling “flea” market every Sunday afternoon. Eating places serve noodles and rice with sate and various styles of fish cooking at night. Chendol and ais kacang (ABC) are also available. More eating places, including Thai cooking, are available another 8km further south at Kampung Pasir Besar.

Negri Sembilan is the home to Malaysia’s Minang Kabau culture, a community originally from West Sumatra which settled in NS in the 15th Century. The culture is famous for its unique and elegant architecture with curving, ornate rooflines whose points resemble buffalo horns, similar to those in the Centre. The society is one of the few matrilineal groups in the world. The Royal capital of Negri Sembilan is located at Sri Menanti, off the road to Seremban, about one hour north of Rompin, by road. The former palace, a 120 year old wooden building is now a museum housing royal regalia, costumes, furniture, weapons etc. The cultural museum, Muzium Adat, is located at Kuala Klawang while the State Museum is located in Seremban, also in a Minang style building. A further museum housing memorabilia from a famous writer is Teratak Za’aba, on the road between Bahau and Batu Kikir. Batu Kikir has a very large “flea” and local food produce market every Wednesday and Sunday morning.

Other places of interest are the very large CIMA Cement Works on the back road between Rompin and Bahau, oil palm and rubber plantations, The old Portuguese settlement at Malacca, the beaches at Port Dickson, the Hindu Virgins Temple and the Chinese Centipede temple on the outskirts of Seremban

Apart from these there are various recreational parks in Jungle areas, often with beautiful waterfalls such as the Ulu Bendol Park and waterfall, on the road to Seremban.
