Primula Hotel - By the city beach (4* hotel)
Grand Continental - city (3*)
Permai Inn - city outskirt (3*)
Midtown Hotel - city (2*)

1st 2 choices are nicer hotels but pay a bit more.

Hi! I had always backpack to Kuala Terengganu at least once a year. Recently, I went to Kuala Terengganu end of May 2006 for a summer camp (in Redang Island) in conjunction with the conservation activity organised Coral Malaysia.

If you are looking for a nice hotel in town, with good price, you may want to check out the Hotel Grand Continental. But if you are planning for a long holiday with a budget price, PA Backpackers would offer a good deal for you.

So, when are you planning to come to Malaysia?

Travel Tips for Kuala Terengganu

Killing Time...

by kenmerk

Since you will invariably have some time to kill at this transit stop, best to wander about and try to make some new friends... (The locals are quite friendly)

I succeeded in making two new friends during our stops in KT, one a small cute boy in the market place....

A Visit To Nearby Islands.

When you were already in Kuala Terengganu, it’s much easier to go to all the island nearby like Redang, Perhentian, Tenggol etc. don’t miss your chance to do so. You’ll regret it later! The water is crystal clear & so inviting for you to dive in!

Sungai Terengganu

This shot is taken at the back of the Central Market (Pasar Besar Kedai Payang) towards the back of the China Town of Kuala Terengganu. I was force to take the right curve (after Sri Malaysia Hotel) and was surprise to find China Town & most importantly the Central Market at the end of Jalan Bandar.

I was told that early morning (7-8am) the river is quite busy with activities. When I was there, it has pass 9pm & I hardly see any boats ply the river. Anyway, I see enough boats at Pulau Perhentian the day before.

P/s: River bank and market place are my favorite photographic themes lately.

Pondok Genta

by mansionion

On top of Bukit Puteri is a small hut that housed a big bell called "genta". The genta that is still exists today was built during the reign of Sultan Zainal Abidin III in the year 1908 and was made from yellow copper. The circumference and height of the genta were 228 centimeters and the weight was 175 kilograms.

In the old days, the genta will normally be rang during emergency - rampage, fire or enemies attacking the state. It was also used during royal ceremonies as well as for call of prayers. It is believed that the genta was guarded by a boy from the royal family whose job was to ring the bell if any emergency or natural disasters occurred.

Today, the genta is still performing its function but no more to alert the existence of enemies instead as a breaking fast reminder during the month of Ramadhan when Muslim fast during the day.

. Kuala terrengganu recognized as political, religion, art, science and technology centre of terrenganu. There are several historical places one shouldn’t miss, included ‘floating mosque’, the largest museum in Malaysia, Batik factory,” Koropok lekor” (a tasty local food make my fish) factory, Floating restaurant, Mount Putery and Chinese street. The most memorable place among these is Chinese Street. There are variety tasteful foods around here. If u are not sure which shop most likely sells tasty food, u may just request for a menu. The menu will tell the answer if the menu was cut from newspaper and laminated. We discovered that few stalls here were introduced by magazine or newspaper before due to their achievement in making nice food.

"Floating Mosque"

Mosque look as floating on the water.u r allowed to enter although u r not muslim.Girls make sure u wear 'tudung'.

"Part of The Lagest Muzeum in Malaysia"

This muzeum not just collected the history of terrenganu, it's all about malays' culture and history.It does help us more understanding part of the culture of the country.
