East Coast Escapade (Part 3: Kuala Terengganu)

In this final installment, we hightlight some of the things we did in Kuala Terengganu. We didn't do much here becuase our trip to Chagar Hutang (Pulau Redang) split our stay here (14-15 & 22-23 May 2005).

At the mouth of the Terengganu River is Pulau Duyong where boats are built, some using traditional methods and material. We learned that there's a special technique of bending planks made of hard wood using heat to fit the frame of the boats.

[Traditional boat-making: Boats like these take about 2-3 months to complete and can cost between RM70,000 and RM100,000]
