Arrival in Kuala Terengganu
Driving to Kuala Terengganu is a 'butt'-ache. The whole journey took up to 6 hours drive. So imagine the plasure when we finally saw the arch of Kuala Terengganu...
Never knew that there is a Chinatown in this state, what a pleasant surprise!
He-An-Gong Chinese Temple 和安宫 / Ho-Ann-Kiong
With a Chinatown, comes a very beautiful Chinese temple...
Pasar Payang (Central Market)
Coming out from Chinatown, take a short stroll and you'll reach the central market where the locals do their daily grocery shopping.
What surprises me was, why was turtle egg abundantly available?!
Not far from the market, there is a Bazaar Warisan which, still relatively new and unoccupied. Climb up the small hill behind this structure, which also served as the entrance, you would come up to the top of a hill where a beacon is located.
Istana Maziah (State Palace) + the Riverside
But of course, only viewed from afar...
This dome of this mosque is made of glass. So it seemed. Giving it the name.
It's the only floating mosque in the region. Also known as the Tengku Tengah Zaharah Mosque. There is also a stretch of nice beach just a stone's throw away.
Sunrise @ Kijal Awana
Stayed in Kijal Awana resort for a night. This place is quite far from Kuala Terengganu though. But we managed to wake up early enough before day break, albeit not quite a magnificent sight.
And I couldn't remember their names....
Hai Peng Kopitiam KEMAMAN
En route from Klang Valley to the East Coast, many travellers stopped by this coffee shop, crowing it one of the best coffee in the country, and a must visit whenever you're heading to the east coast.
Last stop before Entering the East Coast Expressway
Last stop! Got some dried seafood and dessert before another gruesome road ride.
