I mean the new and upcoming Terengganu Bridge, which is modeled after the London Tower Bridge, and which will be a bascule bridge or drawbridge that can open to let ships or boats through……

The Islamic Civilization Park coupled with the Crystal Mosque is definitely is set to become the preferred destination in Malaysia and even perhap the world… but they are also in need of proper care and loving maintenance to stay so… still it is a place you really should not miss when in Kuala Terengganu..
