Terengganu has arguably some of Malaysia's best tropical beaches to laze about on and the clearest of sapphire waters to dive into. These idyllic beaches are found on the postcard-perfect islands of Perhentian, Redang and Kapas. With so many amazing beaches and island resorts to choose from, Terengganu’s mainland is seen by many travellers as a mere pass-through to paradise. Travellers who take the time to explore between paradise-hops will find the entire state is rich in traditional culture, cuisine and scenery.
This region of Malaysia is fairly isolated geographically from the rest of the country and hasn't experience the large influxes of Indians and Chinese. Traditional activities such as kite flying, top spinning, songket (silk or cotton brocade) weaving and batik printing are alive and well in Terengganu.
