Kuala Terengganu

Trip Planner Asia  /  Malaysia  /  Terengganu  /  Kuala Terengganu
Once a small fishing village, Kuala Terengganu is now a developing city where skyscrapers often stand shoulder to shoulder with traditional kampong-style houses. Kuala Terengganu tourist attractions range from historical to leisurely sites, including one of the largest museums in Southeast Asia, as well as lively beaches where you can enjoy horseback riding and kite flying. A major part of any serious Kuala Terengganu itinerary is the city's Chinatown area, where some shops date back to the 1700s. Weather conditions get rough during the monsoon season from November to March, when authorities warn against visiting outlying islands and participating in water sports due to tumultuous seas. When using our Malaysia trip planning website , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Kuala Terengganu

Whether you are looking for a luxurious five-star suite or a simple room, Kuala Terengganu offers accommodations for every budget. You get what you pay for, however, and the least expensive rooms often do not offer air conditioning or television. Another wallet-friendly option, the Chinese-style basic guesthouses remain clustered in the city's Chinatown area.
