Jelutong, Home to Hearty Food

loading

There’s much to see (and eat) in Jelutong – and to contemplate.

Today, Jelutong is a multifaceted place that is rich in history and peopled by folks of all races and creeds. At the same time, it is transforming, growing, and shrugging off its rough past.

Mornings usually begin for its residents with a jog at Bukit Dumbar, a dam that also serves as a recreational park. With its shady trees, well-paved path and flat terrain, the circuit takes less than an hour to complete, making it the perfect spot for morning exercise.

Karpal Singh Drive, a seafront promenade named after the late Karpal Singh, a respected politician and five-term member of parliament for Jelutong, is another quaint place for a jog. And if you’re there early enough, you can catch the sunrise – a spectacular sight to kick-start the day.
