Kuala Terengganu

Kuala Terengganu, KT in short, is located at the east coast of the Peninsula Malaysia and at the mouth of the Sungai Terengganu (or Terengganu River) that empties here into the South China Sea. It is the capital of the state of Terengganu, which forms, together with Kedah and Kelatan, the heartland of Malay culture. KT is a good stop for one or 2 days before moving on along the east coast or towards the National Park / Tasik Kenyir.

Below is the MRT line which connects this part of town with downtown Kuala Lumpur and beyond. Opposite you see a typical highrise condominium block (probably built sometime around 2010), like hundreds of others mushrooming throughout the Klang Valley. The green patches here are not public parks but a golf course. To left of the condo you can see 1Utama shopping mall in the distance.
