Tasik Kenyir boasts of being the largest man made lake in SEA. And its true. Its goes on and on and on.

very beautiful quiet place, ideal for a few days to escape from the city. if you plan to visit the lake during the weekend, you have to know, almost the entire city Kuala Terengganu come here, so book your accommodation in advance.

Kenyir Lake is about an hour from Kuala Terengganu, but there are express buses from the city. It is a massive lake, and very interesting to cruise its waters. There are a range of activities from jungle walks to orchid viewing, and well worth the journey.

All about this lake is great except when you take a trip to the falls, you will be in a small rudimentary boat.

Nearer, there are a few green islands. and still nearer, that is the hill slope of the resort with thick foliage plants and a few haughty tall palm... More

My family booked a government bungalow(Rumah Peranginan Persekutuan) at Pulau Sah with 2 rooms -with lake view. Got a kitchen, fridge etc- have to cook- no food stall/restaurant around. Got to go to mainland (RM10 return) to find one. You could visit herbs Garden just by walking from this 'resort'. Beautiful view and serene. Not many visitors around if you... More
