Terengganu, Malaysia

Terengganu is a state of Malaysia that is located in the east coast region of the country peninsula. It is well known for its beautiful islands, especially the Perhentian Islands, Redang Island and Pulau Kapas. Terengganu is divided into eight administrative districts namely Besut, Dungun, Hulu Terengganu, Kemaman, Kuala Nerus, Kuala Terengganu, Marang, and Seitu. Similar to Kelantan, Terengganu is also a state that is unique on its own where the main sub-group of Malays (those that resides in all the districts except for Besut and northern Setiu) speak Terengganu Malay, which is distinct but closely related to the Kelantanese. They have their own unique culture and tradition, one of it knowingly as Ulek Mayang. On the other hand, you also have the other sub-group of Malays known as the Besut Malays. Despite living in the state of Terengganu, they are culturally closer to and still maintains a strong relationship with the Kelantanese. Most of them converse in Kelantanese Malay dialect.

Not only are they similar in terms of culture but both states also experience the same climate due to their geographical location. They are often the first two states to experience the landfall of the northeast monsoon season each year which leads to floods in the lowland areas. During the northeast monsoon season, floods may last for two to three days or in severe cases, up to eight days.

Development wise, the Kuala Terengganu City Centre (KTCC) is part of the East Coast Economic Region (ECER)'s initiative to boost urban and coastal tourism by making the Terengganu state a tourism gateway to the region. The KTCC development integrates the existing Kuala Terengganu urban areas, merging them into one, naming it Heritage Waterfront City. The KTCC development plan includes a theme park, entertainment and retail outlets as well as commercial and residential units.
