I had wanted to check out Chinatown (Jalan Kampung Cina) when in Kuala Terengganu on my previous visit to the city, but only managed to do so six months later.
I wasn’t looking for Chinese food, but just to absorb the atmosphere. Kuala Terengganu Chinatown is actually just a stone’s throw from Pasar Payang and one street away from the man-made island named Pulau Warisan (Heritage Island).
I had the chance to take a few shots of interesting bits of the Chinatown, as I didn’t find anything distinct about it yet. I really need to stay a little longer!
I had considered taking a trishaw ride along the street so that I could cover a wider area but dropped the idea. It was better to walk. I don’t think I would have spotted World Heritage Lane Chinatown, if I had taken a trishaw ride. Oh yes, Turtle Alley is also one of Chinatown’s side lanes.
