Kuala Terengganu

Once a small fishing village, Kuala Terengganu is now a developing city where skyscrapers often stand shoulder to shoulder with traditional kampong-style houses.

There's much more to do: step off the mainland to explore Perhentian Islands, stroll through Batu Buruk beach, see the interesting displays at Muzium Negeri Terengganu, and take a stroll through Kampung China (Chinatown).
