Chukai, also known by the name of Kemaman Town is the administrative seat of Kemaman District, in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia.The name "Chukai" means 'taxes' in Malay. The town is so named due to its position near the estuary of the Kemaman River, whereby taxes and levies were imposed on riverine traffic, especially during the British colonial period. Chukai is the biggest town in southern Terengganu, and its position between the state capitals of Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu as well as proximity to the oil town of Kerteh has turned Chukai into a major commercial hub for the region. Nearby Kemaman Port serves both as a fishing port and supply base for oil platforms off the Terengganu coast.AttractionsThe Hai Peng Coffee Shop, located just off the main Kuantan-Kuala Terengganu route and near the town centre is famous for its fine coffees.Other attractions in the vicinity include: The Ma’ Daerah Turtle Sanctuary Centre (near Kerteh)Firefly watching along Sungai Kak Yah (Kak Yah River) in Kampung IbokThe fishing village of Kuala KemamanBoating and kayaking along the Chukai River at the Bakau Tinggi Recreational Area Many beaches are within a short driving distance from Chukai.
