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.
Change things up with a short trip to Scuba & Snorkeling in Kuala Besut (about 1h 25 min away). There's much more to do: step off the mainland to explore Perhentian Islands, take in the spiritual surroundings of Crystal Mosque, stop by Kampung China (Chinatown), and stop by Noor Arfa Craft Complex.
