Nowadays, developing regions has made land use land cover (LULC) change as a main and current issue arise from the world environmental change. Heterogeneity purpose on land make land use are not developed sustainably and global pattern of land use understanding by people is weak due to lack of empirical data. Therefore, this study to identify: i) LULC at Bachok and ii) LULC change and spatial pattern changes of LULC in Bachok. In this study, three satellite images of study area in 1994, 2004 and 2016 were processed and analysed with three methods that interlinked each other: (Remote Sensing, Geographical Information System and Landscape Ecology). Landscape pattern of the maps was analysed using landscape metrics calculated by FRAGSTATS software. Results stated that, five class of LULC in Bachok: (water body, forest, agriculture, urban/built up land, and clear land) and revealed that through the years, forest class was decreased due to human activities of agriculture and build up area in Bachok. Generally, landscape metric of ENN proved a significant change of LULC in Bachok that indicate fragmentation process had occurred. Therefore, a study on LULC is essential to provide empirical data for the sustainable management and planning future trends of LULC change and sustaining the landscape ecology.
