Taman Tamadun Islam (Islamic Civilization Park)

You'll find a lot of trishaws in Kuala Terengganu. The only thing is that those cycling those trishaws mostly are old men...so making them cycle too far just don't feel right to me...short trips are ok I guess.

The tiny shop is located inside Pasar Payang. It's quite tricky in there...there're so many shops in Pasar Payang...some don't even have any names...only numbers. This aunt sells plenty of different type of handicraft made from mengkuang (Pandanus odoratissimus)...baskets of...

Most people come all the way just to visit this beautiful island. So why not do so when you were already in Terengganu? You won’t be disappointed! You can book the chalet & the boat at the office nearby the jetty at Marang. The fare for the boat is around RM40/- (To & fro)
Tasik Puteri Golf & Country Club
The course is surrounded by an inland lake which is bluish green in colour, due to the past mining of iron ore in the area... Many of the holes are very scenic looking out into the lake... It is a realy challenging course with the lake comong into play in many holes,...
Kelab Golf Desa Dungun

If You Like To Paint...
The fishing village is ideal for nature lover. If you like to paint, maybe you should bring along your stuff and do the painting on the spot…or at least don’t forget to bring your camera!
The Famous Floating Mosque (Masjid Tengku Tengah Z
I guess many people will not miss visiting the floating mosque even when there is the Crystal Mosque now because it’s much easier to find. It’s near the roadside along Jalan Sultan Mahmud and said to be about 4km from Terengganu Town Center.
