If you are travelling at night, I would highly recommend that you bring a sweater or warm clothing as it can be quite chilly at night. It would also be good if you brought some small soft pillows to help you sleep better during your journey.

Primula Beach Resort, Kuala Terengganu in the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia proximity to the sea ensures water sports enthusiasts to enjoy jet skiing, water skiing, windsurfing, canoeing and snorkeling. The tranquil surrounding of Primula Beach Resort, Kuala Terengganu in the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia is ideal for relaxation, picnics, swimming and snorkeling. The less active individuals can sunbathe on the sandy white beach and give thanks for nature’s endless beauty. Primula Beach Resort (

Hawker Square The Hawker Square is on the street parallel to chinatown. So if all that walking has worked up an appetite, then go savour the local favourites at the square. There is a variety of indian, chinese, malay and nonya food here. Plenty of choices from so many stalls and a bowl of noodles may cost you only RM2.50 or a plate of nasi minyak( a favourite east coast rice dish) costs only RM3.00.

Jalan Banggol/Jalan Lorong Haji Jamil There is a stall that opens for business between 5pm and 7pm which sells delicious ‘nasi dagang’, a rice speciality of Terengganu. The rice looks a little like brown rice and is served with a choice of chicken, beef or fish curry and pickled vegetables.

By the side of Hotel Seri Malaysia This shop looks like it has been hastily put together for the night but has indeed been around for a number of years. It sits just by the side of the hotel, in front of a tiny chinese temple facing the riverfront. This chinese restaurant serves up decent noodles, vegetable dishes and nice seafood at reasonable prices. If you’re not sure about the price for seasonal dishes especially seafood varieties, do ask first - ask if they are charging you RM/kilo (metric system) or RM/kati (imperial system) and then you can decide on the amount you want. This place sells cold beer and opens from late evening until midnight or so.

Note: Please note that Kuala Terengganu is an Islamic state, thus alcoholic beverages is not recommended in hotel, public or any restaurants.

The local currency is Ringgit Malaysia, usually abbreviated as Ringgit or RM. Most hotels accept credit card, except for guesthouse & homestay, so its advisable to ensure you have enough Ringgit Malaysia on hand. US Dollars are the easiest to convert. Best to exchange some money first at the airport after you have cleared immigration and picked up your luggage.

Travel light is the best advice. You can travel casually with lightweight cotton shirt and shorts, if possible short-sleeve and sweat absorbed fabric. Bring along a light jacket or sweater and waterproof raincoat too if you plan to go for a trek or mountain climbing. Hat and sunglasses are necessary especially when you head to islands and beaches. Do not forget, always have a bottle of water with you to quench the thirst. If you are to attend any formal occasion that requires a formal dress code but do not have any proper formal costume with you, perhaps a batik shirt or skirt is the most convenience and best choice.

Generally there are no written rules and regulations for the social conduct in Malaysia, but visitors are advised not to offend the local custom.

• •

Here is a list of do’s and don’ts for your reference: • •

DO’S • • • • • • •

Do take off your shoes before entering a religious site or Malaysian house. Do bend you back a little with lowered hand gesturing as if requesting permisson passing by official, elderly or dignitary. Do greet before entering a house. Do drink a lot of fluid to avoid dehydration. Do wait until you are invited during an eating gathering especially in the presence of senior persons. Malaysians generally understand and speak English. Do learn some basic Malay language as it helps a lot when communicating with the locals. Do ask permission when taking photos of locals, religious places or private properties. Do receive and give anything with the right hand while the left hand is holding the right wrist area.

• •

Don’t neck or kiss in public. Shaking hands is acceptable but avoid kissing the hand or cheek. The Muslim ladies normally nod their head, smile and greet as a note of welcome, unless they offer their hand otherwise. Don’t go nude or topless at the beach. Bikini at secluded beaches on the islands are acceptable, but avoid it at any of the public beaches, either on the island or on the mainland. It is also considered impolite to wear shorts to places of worship such as the mosque or temple. Don’t pass in front of anyone offering prayer. Don’t use your left hand to give or receive things, instead use your right hand. Don’t use the forefinger to point at places, objects or people, it is considered an insult and impolite. Use the right thumb resting on a clenched fist or beckon your whole hand instead. Don’t touch the arms of the waitresses or salesmen to catch their attention. Touching between strangers of the opposite sex is frowned upon. Don’t touch one’s head without prior permission. Don’t show the sole of your foot especially in front of elderly or officials. Don’t cross the chopsticks or stick them vertically into the rice bowl when eating in a Chinese way. Don’t gesture your chopsticks. Don’t offer pork and alcoholic drinks to Muslim and beef to Hindus. Don’t talk arrogantly while in the jungle. For example; “I’m not afraid of any animals”, or “No ghost or spirit in this jungle can harm me”. It is prohibited and one shoud pay their highest respect to the creatures in the jungle when entering into their territories. Don’t simply pluck, break, destroy or bring home any marine fishes and corals when diving or snorkeling. It is against the law. Don’t smoke in some public places such as buses, taxis, elevators, cinemas, shopping malls, banks, and air-conditioned restaurants. There are signs that prohibits smoking in all public areas.
