Located on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Kuala Terengganu is the capital of the state of Terengganu. It's popular with travellers in Malaysia, if only because Kuala Terengganu's Sultan Mahmud Airport (IATA:TGG) is the main arrival point for travellers heading to either the Perhentian Islands or Redang Island. There are several daily flights from Kuala Lumpur and a few times a week from Singapore.

From the airport travellers find their way to the jetty at Merang (for most resorts on Redang Island), the central Shahbandar Jetty (for the Berjaya Redang Resort) or Kuala Besut (for the Perhentian Islands).

Pos Malaysia is the national postal service of Malaysia. Rates for sending a standard letter locally is 30 sen (20 gram) to 40 sen (up to 50 gram). International airmail has minimum rates ranging from RM1.00 to RM2.00, depending on destination. It costs 20 sen to send a postcard or aerogramme locally, or 50 sen to send a postcard or aerogramme to anywhere in the world.

Expedited Mail Service (EMS), branded locally as Poslaju, is available for both domestic and international destinations. Domestic EMS has a next day delivery guarantee. International EMS guarantees mails and parcels to be delivered out of the country by the following day. The time required to arrive at its destination will depend on clearance by authorities and the postal service of the destination country. For most countries, delivery of documents can be done in 3 to 5 days.
