Holiday season is here again... Like myself stationed in Terengganu.. my destination holiday might be in KL.. but I think like most of my collegues and other Malaysian.. that work and therefore stay in KL 99% of the time.. why not come to Trengganu and enjoy the things on offer :)
In November and December.. special events would be Monsoon Cup (30 Nov - 5 Dec 2010)... and of course other attractions are still abound.
Monsoon Cup in action.
Cheap seafood at Kelulut. Here we had seafood for 20 pax.. around RM350 and still there were leftovers!!! LINK!
Shopping at Pasar Payang.. I got those at RM60 per piece. Sold for frens @ KL for RM70 ;P
Another nice seafood restaurant nearby Masjid Terapung... quite cheap as well and not to mention DELISH!
Kerepok Lekor Losong... yummyyyy..... LINK!
After the food and shopping session.. why not a bit of culture at Taman Temadun Islam... More? LINK!
So.. what about a place to stay... cheapest way is of course to rent a homestay... me and my friends also operate a nice cheap (relatively wayyyyyyyy cheaper than a hotel) at Kuala Ibai Kuala Terengganu... that would be:-
