TERENGGANU, a coastal state overlooking the South China Sea, is famed for its 244 km stretch of unpolluted and panoramic beaches. As a beach person, I’m personally moved by its tranquil emerald islands where its waters turn golden hues at sunrise.
Terengganu is where people come to experience the authentic way of life in the East Coast of Malaysia. It is also the only wetland in Malaysia with 9 interconnected ecosystems: the sea, beach, mudflat, lagoon, estuary, river, islands, coastal forest, and mangrove forest. It was where I first found that squid jigging and mussel picking activities would be so much fun. But most of all, this ‘Postcards from Terengganu’ post is intended to make you all see the natural & exotic charm of the state.
Terengganu, beautiful state, beautiful culture.
