Kuala Terengganu – City of Mosques

Kuala Terengganu, or KT, is the royal capital of Terengganu State on the East Coast of Malaysia. The state of Terengganu is known for its high majority of muslims in the population and hence you will see a large number of mosques in this region. It is a moderately conservative state and not so open as for example Kuala Lumpur is, but as long as you wear suitable clothes in public areas, do not exhibit public shows of affection, such as holding hands and not drinking alcohol openly, then there is not a problem. To enter mosques the ladies are required to wear a head covering.
