Chinatown in Kuala Terengganu is favoured by most travellers as the best place to visit on the island. But what first introduced this island to the public is the discovery of oil around the area of Kuala Terengganu.
Visitors may notice the overall looks of the shophouses first, as it is unlike any ordinary chinatown shops. The shophouses here gives out an old feel to it, the wooden tables, books which are decades old, and familiar scents of the past. Some shops there sells similar products, but different quality. Visitors can look around to see what they would want to purchase. The most recommended purchase would be the reprinted version of art pieces by a well known local artist, Chang Fee Ming. There are many other artworks to look around too, as well as batik for sale. Shops there mostly closes in the late evening.
Sometimes visitors can also spot fishermen coming back from the sea with their catch.
