Beautiful Kuala Terengganu

I've been to Kuala Terengganu - KT a few times before. Every visit here is so special. None of the visit were the same. Each visit has it owns uniqueness n there seemed to be more things to see. It's truly a beautiful place with lots of heritage. The people are friendly...views are great...everything here is just so beautiful.

A little bit about KT

Terengganu is located along the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. To the north lies the Kelantan state, and to the south, Pahang. Terengganu covers around 12,995 square kilometers and comprises seven districts: Besut, Setiu, Kuala Terengganu, Hulu Terengganu, Marang, Dungun, and Kemaman.

If you're driving or taking a bus to get to Kuala Terengganu you'll pass along the beach...really nice.

Terengganu is actually very famous for it's many great islands...Perhentian Island, Redang Island, Kapas Island, Lang Tengah Island, Tenggol Island n etc. Beaches in Terengganu are also beautiful. Those who have never been to islands in Terengganu...really should try going.

Where nature embraces heritage

One thing hard not to notice are unique architecture on buildings all over KT...from the market, mosques, offices to the airport, you'll see beautiful carvings on the wall...ceiling...beams n etc.

I really like KT's Airport. It's beautiful...n so unique. I would say this is the most unique airport in Malaysia.

You'll also found trishaws around the city. Most of them running this business are old men...really old men. It's nice just to seat back n enjoy the ride on trishaws. I've been on the trishaws once only...can't really enjoy the ride looking at the struggling old man.
