Kuala Terengganu is perched on the eastern coast of Peninsula Malaysia, a former Chinese trading port that is now mostly visited by tourists because of its close proximity to some pretty spectacular islands. Perfect for a leisurely day of sightseeing before you head inland to Lake Kenyir or further east for some island hopping, Kuala Terengganu has a pleasant, attractive old city centre with a bustling open-air market, a thriving Chinatown, and some gorgeous beaches.
Eating in Kuala Terengganu is also worth a look: try the fresh local seafood, a keropok lekor (fish sausage) or a Nasi Dagang on the run.
Just a one-hour plane ride from Kuala Lumpur, it’s easy and relatively cheap to get to KualaTerengganu’s Sultan Mahmud Airport. Long distance buses also travel to Kuala Terengganu from most major Malaysian cities. From the city itself, you’re a stone’s throw away from treasured Lake Kenyir and beautiful Redang Island.
