A recreational area with cute and naughty monkeys around to amuse you. You won’t miss this place if you visit Telaga Simpul because the beach is located nearby. The beach is not really nice compared to other beaches in Terengganu but it is a recreational area where you can find some amenities. The Beaches!
China Town !
To my suprise ! with such high muslim population, KT do have a china town. And they do sell pork in some restaurant. And owners of these shops are mostly chinese as well. A real change of enviroment once you are in china town.
Floating Mosque - it is called the floating mosque because it gives an illusion that its floating. Actually, its not! The mosque is sorrounded by water but it is elevated with the used of the stilts.
I wasnt able to go inside and see the mosque up close but from a far you can definitely tell its magnificent structure.
Arial view of KT town from Bukit Puteri
At 200 meter above sea level, Bukit Puteri is the highest point in Kuala Terengganu. Hence, visitors standing on top of Bukit Puteri can witness the magnificent view of the areas surrounding it.
At one side of the hill is the view of Sungai Terengganu - where you can see fishing boats coming back home after a hard day in the late afternoon. To the other side of the hill is a panoramic view of Kuala Terengganu town, where the town's tallest building (Wisma Darul Iman) and Masjid Zainal Abidin can be identified prominently.
Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu
"Quiet little state"
Terengganu is a quiet state, with quiet roads and secluded islands and beaches.
Terengganu is one of the three east coast states on Peninsular Malaysia and Kuala Terengganu, its capital, stands on the bank of the Terengganu river.
Terengganu which is located on the east coast of Malaysia is another holiday destination. Its long coastline is couple with beaches of white sand and clear, warm waters is a known for activities such as sea sports, fishing and snokerling and divings. Its numerous islands offer ideal getaway spots for sun-worshippers and diving enthusiasts or simply for pure relaxation. Among the islands of Redang, Kapas, Perhentian and Tenggol.
On the town side, places of interest include the State Museum, Central Market and Istana Maziah (Sultan's home), 6 km away from the town at Chendering, is the Sutera Semai Centre, the country's first silk weaving venture which offers interesting insights into the whole process of silk-weaving. It is also the site of the Malaysian Handicraft Centre.
Future developments like new airport, stadium and hypermarkets are being planned for to enchanced this quite little town. So years down the road I doubt it will still be quite as before.
I was told this is the only hill smack in the middle of town.
