Places To Visit @ Kuala Terengganu

A continuation of my previous post on Resorts World Kijal, we wake up early the next day for this beautiful sunrise. It was truly breathtaking watching the sun emerge from the horizon along the sandy beaches.

We had our hearty breakfast at Restaurant Kampung Meraga Beris before began venturing Kuala Terengganu. 

Our first stop was a fishing village at Kemasik Beach, a quaint and picturesque village.

Fresh catch of the day, I wish I could buy some home.   

Next, we visited Noor Arfa Craft Complex, a pioneer in the batik industry. 

It was an eye opening experience watching the unique batik making process from tjanting to block printing.

The centre also showcases other handiworks such as the traditional woven songket and many more.

We also get to experience hands on the painting of batik at a small fee.

The kids will have a good time, bunny petting at FunLand. Perhaps, adults too! :p

Another must visit in Kuala Terengganu is the China Town located along Jalan Bandar.  Check out some of the beautiful street art I managed to capture.

The local wet market is just a few blocks away from the Chinatown, hence we make a brisk stop here to shop for some souvenirs and local delicacies.

It's really sad to see these turtle's eggs being sold openly in the market. Let's save the turtles, do not condone buying them.

We also visited the magnificent Crystal Mosque at Islamic Civilisation Park, which is also one of the world's most beautiful Muslim's holy places of worship. The unique mosque made of steel, glass and crystal definitely awed me.

After a long day out, we are finally back to Resorts World Kijal in the evening. Our dinner was at the Open Herb Garden where we are spoilt with choices from the many stalls available.

My picks! How could you say no to superb fresh and succulent seafoods? Ahhh.... totally worth my calories. Lol

Another must try is the local 'teh tarik' (pulled tea) which was pretty amazing too.

It's been an amazing stay at the Resorts World Kijal. Thank you for the warm hospitality and great memories. So, what are you waiting for? Book now to experience the fantastic and beautiful Terengganu.
