Top areas in Besut


Besut is one of the small towns that make up eastern Malaysia’s state of Terengganu. The town is located within relatively easy reach of bigger cities such as Kota Bharu, so it’s easily accessible by road or rail from the big cities.

Besut is the main access point for Perhentian Islands, so many of the town’s visitors are on their way to their island vacation. There are several hotels located on the island, as well as many near the ferry port, making it easy to reach the final destination for a great island vacation. Most of the hotels on Perhentian Islands are well-equipped to help guests arrange diving and snorkeling excursions, as well as other tours around the island.

Travelers who are staying in Besut rather than going to the island can certainly spend time in town, exploring some of the local shops and old buildings, or enjoying a day at Kelab Golf Course, as the weather is almost always ideal for a game of golf.
