Kuala Terengganu (population 298,000; abbreviated as K.TRG) is the state administrative and royal capital city of Terengganu, Malaysia. It is also a district of the same name. It is located about 500 kilometers northeast of Kuala Lumpur on a promontory surrounded on three sides by the South China Sea. The name means the "river mouth of Terengganu", referring to the broad expanse of the Terengganu River estuary which empties into the ocean at this point.
Main economic activities include retail and wholesale trade in food items, fabric and apparels, fisheries, agriculture, service industries, and tourism, particularly as a jumping-off point for the nearby Perhentian Islands. The town is connected to other towns via a good network of roads and also some ferries that ply the Terengganu River. On the other side of the Terengganu River, there is a medium-sized airport serving domestic routes.
Places of interest include Chinatown, Pasar Payang (Central Market), the Sultan's Palace, the State Museum, Pulau Duyong.
Kuala Terengganu started off with only one street called Kampung Cina (Chinatown). A family of Chinese traders that were trading between China and the Malay Peninsula established it as early as the 15th century. This is evidenced by the Chinese families that live in Kampung Cina (Chinatown) and the buildings which are hundreds of years old. It soon grew into an important trading post between the two countries. However, after the Melaka Empire conquered the town, its influence as a leading port in the Southeast Asian region diminished as most of the traders preferred to stop at Melaka, which was the center of trade between China, India and Southeast Asia.
