    Great place to visit to do architecture and history study. Most of the places were upgraded with the murals and decorations. It was lively at night especially at Kampung China and Icity area.  more »

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.
