Getting To Terengganu

 
 

Map Of Terengganu, Malaysia

 

Traveling domestically to Terengganu is convenient as it is easily accessible from all major cities and all parts of the country by air and road.

 

BY ROAD

 

An excellent network of roads provides easy access to any destination within the state. Terengganu is also linked to Singapore, Thailand and the rest of the peninsula by a system of tolled and un-tolled highways equipped with amenities such as rest areas, restaurants, souvenir shops and surau's (prayer rooms for Muslims). Singapore is five hours south while Thailand is just two hours north on the scenic East Coast Highway that passes through countless pretty fishing villages and by empty beaches.

 

The recently completed East-West Expressway that links Kuala Lumpur with the East Coast now cuts the travel time from 4 hours to a comfortable 2.5 hours. From Kuantan city on the East Coast, it's less than an hour up the coast to reach Terengganu.
