Terengganu, Malaysia

Terengganu, located in the east coast region of Malaysia's peninsula, is famous for its stunning islands, including the Pulau Kapas, Pulau Perhentian, and Pulau Redang. The state is divided into eight administrative districts: Besut, Dungun, Hulu Terengganu, Kemaman, Kuala Nerus, Kuala Terengganu, Marang, and Setiu.

Similar to Kelantan, Terengganu stands unique, with its primary sub-group of Malays - those residing in all districts except for Besut and northern Setiu - speaking Terengganu Malay, a dialect distinct yet closely related to Kelantanese. They uphold their unique culture and tradition, including the notable Ulek Mayang. Additionally, the Besut Malays, despite residing in Terengganu, maintain strong cultural ties and a close relationship with Kelantanese, mostly conversing in the Kelantanese Malay dialect.

The similarities extend to climatic conditions, with both states experiencing similar weather due to their geographical location. Terengganu and Kelantan are often the first states to experience the northeast monsoon's landfall each year, leading to floods in lowland areas. During the monsoon, floods can last from two to three days, and in severe cases, up to eight days.

Regarding development, the Kuala Terengganu City Centre (KTCC) is part of the East Coast Economic Region (ECER)'s initiative to enhance urban and coastal tourism by making Terengganu a tourism gateway to the region. The KTCC development integrates the existing Kuala Terengganu urban areas into one, aptly named the Heritage Waterfront City. The development plan for KTCC includes a theme park, entertainment and retail outlets, and commercial and residential units.
