I only know that no matter how many occasions I have been to this east coast state, it is not enough because Terengganu is just so beautiful to explore Yes, I definitely do not mind enduring some nine hours on the road from Ipoh!

  1. How I wish I was a local and I’d be able to understand all that line us, not a single month goes wasted. It’s indeed a place to visit this year

  2. Hello Emily! This is exciting, you gave us tips to help us schedule our trip soon! Now remains is when or which month should I date my tickets, hahaha.

  3. Agreed, theres too many things to see and explore in Terengganu. Used to grow up in Terengganu for about 7 years (:

  4. I really missed my beautiful state. After spending 25 years away, I decided to come back and settled down in K.Terengganu. I started to enjoy the peaceful life again, visiting the beautiful beaches and to enjoy the delicious food of Terengganu.
