Merang was a good, nice place to be visited again next time.But one thing to take into consideration is to have a better and friendly customer service.
That what I had experienced before.
Merang has not much to offer other than clean and nice long beaches which are not crowded by tourists (gives you a good relaxing environment).
Oh yea... there is turtal hatchery site too, of which if you got lucky you may be able to see turtles laying eggs at night.
Merang is an idyllic and relaxing fishing village area. Well-known for jetties to nearby islands such as Redang and Lang Tengah.
Nice drive along the roads as not many cars and no traffic lights. Must try the local delicacies such as 'keropok lekor' and 'sotong celup' - the latter only unique to Penarik.
Nice resort but dirty beach surrounding it also needs better transportation to and from hotel cans try to over charge you!
Very village-type of town. No local attractions and lack of local restaurants except a few thai-food stalls open at night.
Suggest to drive to Kuala Trangganu for more attractions
Very good place impressive variety of food. Ilike the palace because of natural surroundings and the peaceful atmosphere.
although according to Lonely planet, it's a dull village, actually it's a quiet and friendly place to stay.
Close to Jetty to Redang Island.. a very beautiful island in Terengganu.. Snorkeling, Scuba diving..heaven!
I not visited so much places in Merang City. I visited only the beach areas which is nice to travel.
