Kuala Terengganu — 3 nights

Once a small fishing village, Kuala Terengganu is now a developing city where skyscrapers often stand shoulder to shoulder with traditional kampong-style houses.
Get a sense of the local culture at Crystal Mosque and Masjid Sultan Zainal Abidin. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Batu Buruk beach and Pantai Teluk Bidara. Get out of town with these interesting Kuala Terengganu side-trips: Kuala Besut (Pantai Bukit Keluang & Scuba & Snorkeling). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Kampung China (Chinatown), make a trip to Tengku Tengah Zaharah Mosque, examine the collection at Muzium Negeri Terengganu, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Bukit Puteri.
