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.
