What We Love About Terengganu

If there’s a word that can sum up the state of Terengganu, it’s “heritage”. Everywhere you go, you will see a celebration and preservation of its Chinese and Malay roots in various forms: from literal practices to architecture to gastronomy. Wander the streets of its capital, Kuala Terengganu, and visit Chinatown, where you’ll be able to find attractions like the Teck Soon Heritage House, the Ho Ann Kiong Buddhist Temple, and the Hawker Center. At the Central Market, try your hand at preparing local dishes with exotic ingredients. If you want to know more about Islam, you can visit the Islamic Civilization Park which houses the Crystal Mosque and replicas of the world’s most important Islamic sites. Natural treasures can also be found nearby, like the man-made Lake Kenyir, Rendang Island and its white sandy beaches, and Bukit Keluang and its numerous sea caves. Escape to Terengganu and bask in its tranquil atmosphere, a stunning change of pace from Malaysia’s bustling cities.
