Terengganu is a state on the eastern coast of the Malaysian Peninsula. It’s best known for its superb diving islands, like Perhentian and Redang. Easily reachable by a one-hour long flight from the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, and also long-distance bus from KL, Penang, and many other cities. Many travelers come here to snorkel or scuba dive in the islands, but the coast itself is quite laid back and peaceful. It is a great destination for water sports. Lake Kenyir, a man-made lake created by the damming of Kenyir River in Ulu, contains several islands and offers a scenic view of the dam. Terengganu also offers an excellent food scene, including Nasi Kerabu, commonly known as 'blue rice'. Many conservation works are on-going, such as protecting the sea turtles’ nesting site. Different from other states in Malaysia, more than 90% of population of Terengganu is Muslim. Just like its nickname, Darul Iman (Adobe of Faith in Allah) suggests, Terengganu is known as a conservative state. Most of the street signs are mainly written in Arabic, along with English and Malay. Even if Terengganu is well known for its beaches, don't forget to cover your shoulders and knees in respect of the local culture.

A gateway to Pulau Redang, Pulau Kapas & Pulau Perhentian islands, haven of sun, sea and sea at the east coast of Malaysia. A microcosm of Malaysia’s economic explosion: fishing village strikes oil, modernity ensues. Kuala Terengganu is surprisingly attractive despite the number of newly built (with petro-wealth), sterile-looking skyscrapers. There’s a boardwalk, a couple of decent beaches, a few old kampong style houses hidden among the high rises, and one of Eastern Peninsular Malaysia’s prettiest Chinatowns. With seafood-heavy local cuisine and good transport links, KT is worth a day or two in between the islands and jungles. Discover 1001 things to do in beautiful Terengganu.
