Terengganu is one of the best states in Malaysia I could ever live . Living in Terengganu made me appreciate authentic foods,nature and culture architecture more. If you are a nature lover, you can visit one beautiful waterfall in Terengganu, The Tasik Puteri, Bukit Besi, Dungun. It’s only 1 hour drive (77km) from Kuala Terengganu or 30 minute drive from Dungun Town (33km) away. Tasik Puteri, Bukit Besi has man-made waterfalls. The waterfall is within a short hike and walk away to reach, right beside the lake. The water flowing from above Tasik Puteri made this place beautifully pristine and scenic. This made the environment calming and cozy.
This is Tasik Puteri, Bukit Besi waterfall. There are shallow baths suitable for children and those who do not know how to swim. For those who are good at swimming, it is possible to take a bath in a relatively deep area where the base is very blue.
This place is perfect for family picnics and friendly for friends outings as well. You can bring barbeque tools for a barbeque outings or if you are lazy to cook, no worries because there are shops that sell light snacks such as “Cempedak Goreng” and “Goreng Pisang.” Like me, I brought a tent and camp overnight to enjoy the nature with my friends. The experience was lovely as we get to escape the city life for a moment and just enjoy the music of forest.
