A small town is an important settlement for rural areas. Its function can influence the growth, development and progress of its surrounding population. However there has not been any detailed description on what is a functional small town. This study aims to investigate the basis for constructing a development model for a functional small town. Five small towns in the districts of Alor Gajah and Jasin were investigated. The towns are Lubok Cina and Kuala Sungai Baru in Alor Gajah District, with Bemban, Umbai and Sungai Rambai in Jasin District. The selection of these small towns were undertaken in a preliminary study. Observation and quantitative methods were applied in the field to obtain information on the features and functions of the small towns. Additional information was obtained from relevant agencies, particularly Alor Gajah Municipal Council and Jasin District Council. Questionnaire surveys were also done for information on consumers pertaining to the facilities and services provided by each small town. The study findings show that each small town has its specific characteristic and function. The differences observed are in respect of land use, population characteristic, functional unit and identity. Land use in general exhibits diverse mixed activities. The function of each small town studied is generally charaterised as diverse. By providing diverse functional, the small towns in Alor Gajah and Jasin Districts offer goods and basic services to the local population. Each small town also has its own attraction and identity to draw consumers and visitors. However, each small town investigated has yet to achieve its function completely. Several development proposals are identified to advance and enhance the economic growth of the study area. Besides this, in order to ascertain that each small town functions wholly and expands more actively, an integrated economic development needs to be implemented, alongside fulfilling the urban services facilities to satisfy various needs and demands of the population.
