Terengganu is one Malaysian state, truly blessed with a wealth of charming landscapes and natural wonders. Its 225 kilometers coastline of white sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages, captivating offshore islands and aquamarine waters make it a great holiday destination.
Among its attractions is Kenyir Lake, a rock-filled dam that has become an angler's heaven. Sekayu waterfalls with its seven cascades, natural landscape and varied wildlife is yet another. Even the vibrant cottage industries involved in the making of traditional handicrafts such as songket, batik weaving, bear testimony to a people whose heritage dates back as far as 2,000 years.
The beach resorts of Tanjing Jara and Rantau Abang, sixty kilometers south of Kuala Terengganu, the state capital, are also points of interest to see. The latter beach is particularly fascinating as it is one of the best places to watch giant Leatherback turtles. Equally impressive are the islands of Pulau Perhentian, Pulau Redang, Pulau Kapas, Pulau Tenggol and Pulau Lang Tengah in the Marine Park, which is both picturesque and abundant in marine life
