Teluk Bidara Beach, Dungun

if you dreamed for an awesome beach for budget vacation, read on.

if you want to go for a holiday but short of money, why not visit to the local beaches than spending a fortune to go all the way to other countries. there are so much more to see in Kuala Terengganu.

Teluk Bidara is a very beautiful beach located in Dungun, Terengganu. From Kuantan, drive north for about 2 hours, passing through the oil town of Kerteh, Paka and Dungun. From Dungun town, head further north for another 5 minutes. You should be passing over the Dungun river bridge. After the bridge, look out for sign into Teluk Bidara recreational area.

i would say, teluk bidara beach is the best beach in east coast mainland. it has the crystal clear water as similar to Redang Island. the clean beach with beautiful fine white sand. the waves are not strong so it is suitable for a swim. probably my favourite place to spend my weekend with my family and friends.

Bazaar Warisan

Bazaar Warisan Kuala Terengganu

Famous with its splendor and unique design, Bazaar Warisan is located near to the Payang Market and the Bukit Puteri which is just 10 minutes drives from the Kuala Terengganu town. This RM18.4 million building which featured the traditional architecture of Terengganu is opened at July 2008. It has many little shops that sell different types of handicraft such as basket, bag, batik and more. It generates income for the local people by providing job opportunities. What is more, it helps to share the heritage and culture of the Malaysian.

For your information, the jetty where people take the ferry to the Redang Island is just opposite to the Bazaar warisan. Many tourists would stop by to do a little shopping to buy some souvenir because the price is reasonable. Also the colorful batik which is the trademark of Terengganu is one of the reason too.

Here is a little tips for you to have maximum amusement : take the sampan from the jetty to go to seberang takir where the Malay village located. On the other hand, you can tell the people who is driving the sampan to take you for a ride at the Terengganu River. It has so much more to see. Worth trying :)

Pandak Beach

The Pandak Beach is 15 minutes drive away from Kuala Terengganu town, located between Kuala Ibai and Marang, where you can enjoy an evening stroll. It is famous with its scenic, beautiful and sandy-white beach. Unlike other beaches in Kuala Terengganu, the shallow part of the water is ranged about 200m from the beach side. This allowed people to swim at the beach without the fear of the big waves. Besides that, car park is available near the beach. Furthermore, there are mamak stalls for people to enjoy the typical Terengganu teh tarik and keropok lekor during evening.
