This area is referred to as 'Chinatown' by the locals. This area consists of two main streets that converge and a few back alleys [yes, the back alleys are worth navigating as there are hidden treasures if you are nice and make friends easily]. At the very least you'll enjoy ample chinese fare from simple noodles in broth to some... More

If you're familiar with Chinatown districts in other parts of Asia then you may well be disappointed with the relatively small offering in Kuala Terengganu. There's not really too much to see and it's definitely not worth going out of your way to visit. Can be reached on foot easily enough from the ferry terminal, as long as you don't... More

Visited the place during evening !! Everything shuts here by 8 pm ish! Also didn't find much variety in clothes and shopping stuff! It's more of a vegetable market it seemed ! Also many restaurants to eat food but understandably serve Chinese cuisine predominantly ! Would not have mind if it was skipped !

Best thing about this Chinatown - The Store. A kind of department store with most things a traveler would need stocking up on... dental floss and alcohol, surely.

This is a little town with character. When you walk down the main street, take note of the various little streets: the Turtle Alley, street with colourful umbrellas, etc. This is a good spot for photography. Remember to drop by the dessert shop near the entrance for good local delicacies.. best to go in the morning, otherwise most things are... More
