Duyung Island (Pulau Duyung)


Pulau Duyung is the most well-known boat-building ground in Terengganu. There, you can see boats being made by skilled boat builders who implement skills which have been passed down from generation to generation.

Builders are unique, for they work entirely from their memory and experience, without any set plans.

Pulau Duyung is also renowned for its dried and salted fish, and fish crackers industries.

It is easily accessible via the Sultan Mahmud Bridge or the Kuala Terengganu waterfront by boat, for those who enjoy using sea transportation.
