Pulau Kapas

Pulau Kapas is a small island located only about 6km off Marang in the east coast state of Terengganu (about 1h north of Kuala Terengganu). It has quite and relaxed atmosphere because it is bypassed by the majority of the backpacker circuit looking for a more remote place like the Perhentian Islands. Pulau Kapas only get fairly busy on the weekends when locals come to island. There are a few good snorkeling spots around the island. All accommodations and beach are on the west coast facing the mainland. The west coast is the weather side has no sand beach, only rocks - it can be reached after a short walk through the jungle. Pulau Kapas shuts down during the monsoon season between November and February.

There a few big stores in Low Yat but mostly it's small open shops and booths so it feels almost like a market.
The basement has ATMs, a few restaurants and a decent food court (Lemon Court).

The first 2 floor are mainly camera and mobile phones whereas at the upper 3 floors you find everything and anything concerning computers, notebooks etc.
Most shops have A4-sheets with the price list so it’s best to collect some of them and compare prices.
