Bukit Puteri

A scenic viewpoint

What we say: 3 stars

Bukit Puteri is a hillock that sits towards the northern end of Kuala Terengganu, offering excellent views over the city and surrounds.

Home to the ruins of a 19th century fort, a handful of cannons and a lighthouse, the main attraction here is the view rather than the fort. You can see a small throne, a pit for cannonballs and the previously mentioned cannons, but better to just bring a bag of rambutans with you and plonk yourself on one of the shaded park benches from where you can enjoy the view.

Unfortunately it closes at 17:00, or as we experienced 16:45 if the guard wants to blow out early, which is a shame as it would be a great point from where to enjoy the sunset.

A visit to Bukit Puteri is best combined with a wander through the central market which is very close by.
