Visitors to Terengganu will not take too long to find out that the people of this state are just as beautiful. Ever so courteous and helpful, they welcome anyone from anywhere in the world wishing to share in all that they and their beautiful state have to offer. Following a graceful lifestyle in picturesque villages where religion, tradition and culture are dominant, they are also a most gifted lot, artistic and creative, with the ability to create traditional works of art including the highly-skilled craft of boat-building which is something the state is highly recognized for.

Shopping in Terengganu

 

With only 1 million people making up Terengganu's population, life in Kuala Terengganu, its capital city generally relaxed and unhurried, and provides a fantastic change from big city living.

 

The long stretches of the Terengganu coastline, extending from Besut in the north to Kemaman in the south, is endowed with numerous long, white sandy beaches nestling in pristine tranquility in rocky bays and secluded palm-fringed coves. Washed by the warm waters of the South China Sea, its beaches proclaim nature's wonderful alchemy of fine powdery white and gold sands. The beaches are magnificently wide, often times sloping gradually into the sea.

 

Terengganu's offshore islands, with their crystal clear waters and vibrant underwater world, is part of a marine park. Colourful, mature coral gardens and several shipwrecks in these waters offer some of the best dive sites in the region. With the mesmerising vastness of the sea, cool breezes and breathtaking sunsets, the islands are nothing short of a tropical paradise. On very picturesque fishing village that welcomes visitors with tall swaying coconut trees, cool fresh air, a superb lagoon and a fleet of fishing trawlers is Marang.

Malay Traditional Village / Kampung Life - Terengganu

 

Travelers fortunate to include it in their itinerary will wish they can stay forever as they will be simply captivated by its natural beauty and island ambience.

 

Chendering which is the site of a deep fishing project, is located only 6km south of Kuala Terengganu. With a long jetty, stretches beautiful beaches, it makes for a fine place to enjoy fishing. It is also considered the state?s centre for handicraft and traditional textiles. Tiny and quaint is Kijal, a fishing village just north of the Kemaman. Here, peace and solitude is ever present. It is where one can simply put one?s feet up and watch fishing fleets returning with their catch, see how fishermen mend their nets or how they attend to their boats - a place to lay low.
