JPN Kuala Terengganu

Kuala Terengganu is the largest city as well as the state and royal capital of Terengganu state, Malaysia. On 1 January 2008, Kuala Terengganu was awarded city status and the city  is administered by Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu (MBKT) after accorded a city status.

Main economic activities include retail and wholesale trade in food items, fabric and apparels, fisheries, agriculture, service industries, and tourism, particularly as a jumping-off point for the nearby
Perhentian Islands.

The city is connected to other towns via a good network of roads and also some ferries that ply the Terengganu River. The long distance bus station has buses to all main Malaysian cities outside Terengganu : Kuala Lumpur (7 hours), Penang (7-8 hours), Johor Bahru (9 hours), Kota Bharu (3 hours), Malacca, Kuantan.

The local bus station has buses to most places in town and in Terengganu : Merang (for Redang Island), Kuala Besut (for the Perhentian Islands), Dungun, etc.

Transnasional also runs buses direct to Singapore (10 hours to / from Singapore).

Kuala Terengganu's Sultan Mahmud Airport (TGG) currently receives flights from Kuala Lumpur provided by Malaysia Airlines and budget carrier AirAsia.

In season (March-October), there are two ferries a day from the central Shahbandar Jetty direct to Redang Island (75 min). These are operated by and intended primarily for guests of the Berjaya Redang Resort, but they'll take non-guests on board (for a price) if there's space.

Most travellers to Redang Island, however, will go via the main jetty at Merang, 45 min north of Kuala Terengganu.
