Terengganu is a state on the eastcoast of Peninsular Malaysia.
The best time to travel to the Perhentian Islands (Pulau Perhentians) is between May and mid-October. From mid-October to February the monsoon rains affect the weather and travel along the eastcoast of Malaysia. During this time most of the island's resorts close down as the fishing boats and small boats used for ferrying visitors to the islands stay in port due the high, rough seas experience along the coastline.
From Sultan Mahmud Airport (TGG) there are currently flights to Kuala Lumpur with Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia and to Singapore with Fireflyz.
More Asian cities are added when the airport after upgrading.
Upon arrival in Kuala Besut harbour you can easily take a boat ferry over the Perhentian Islands. There are many eager different companies at the harbour that you could choose to book your ferry ticket with which will be more than happy to arrange your transportation to your desired resort. Alternatively you could possibly arrange with the resort that you are staying with for a transfer from the harbour to the resort as part of your tour package.
