Terengganu has a beautiful coastal road that takes you through most of the fishing ports and towns in the state. The Kemaman district developed tremendously during the mid-90's economic boom, when housing projects mushroomed overnight
Today the town is a little more than a village with wooden shops lining its main road. The buzz in town is at the fish market where fishing boats unload their daily catch. There are a few Chinese motels with very basic amenities and a police station at the end of the street
The villagers are hardy people. They have learnt that the sea can be rewarding but it can also strip one of all the kindness it has bestowed on them in one flail sweep as can be seen in the conditions of some of the houses facing the seafront. So they work and work and live a simple contented life. Always in praise of the almighty Allah.
The centre of the oil industry in the peninsular is in fact situated in Kerteh, just a little further up from Kijal. (heading towards Kuala Terengganu from Kuantan). The gigantic, some would even say- monstrous structures seem to be a bit of a shock for unsuspecting drivers enjoying the tranquillity of the coast.

Pulau Tenggol is a short boat ride away from the Kuala Dungun jetty at Dungun, Terengganu. This isolated island is a haven for divers.
Pulau Redang is located some 1 hr from mainland Terengganu, takeoff point at Merang jetty or Shahbandar Jetty,Kuala Terengganu depending on which resort you stay with. This beautiful island is popular with local tourists for its affordable package trips but should really have better control over its misuse of its natural beauty.

A little island not more than 20 minutes away by boat from the sleepy village of Marang, Pulau Kapas(Cotton Island) basks idyllically as it has for over 270million years. This little haven in the South China Sea and just off the Terengganu coast
The phrase 'the grass is always greener' is certainly true of most travellers who have zig-zagged the globe thrice over but not have even ventured so far out of their home state
On the lake,there are many waterfalls (14 waterfalls and rapids) and many more little tributaries (15 in total) where we can clean ourselves and quench our thirst after a long day foraging for leaves and shoots
Marang fishing village can be seen from the bridge crossing over Sungai (River) Marang.
