This lake is quite breathtaking with it's enormous size and small islands and tree crowns showing up everywhere. The water has a beautiful color and there are many small sights with waterfalls and stunning views. The lake is defiantly worth a visit!

Don't expect too much of the boathouse, it is basic with communal toilets, no hot... More

The elephant sanctuary is new. It's only six months old. The maps printed and the GPS will tell you to go to another location. That old location is very far away. 50 Km of winding roads before you realise its an old abandoned spot. Then you drive back to realise that the new sanctuary is soo much nearer. A total... More

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.

One can also buy a plant as low as RM10.00 at the herb island.We also stopped at another island where there... More

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.
