Taman Tamadun Islam (TTI) is just 15 minutes drive from my house. The monument park which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Terengganu, features 21 great Islamic monuments that reminisce the rise of Islam into a global religion.
Even though it's very near to my house, I don't really have the time to bring my children to TTI except during the school holidays. Most of my Terengganu friends pun have never been to the park.
If you don't feel like walking around the park, you can take tramp rides, buggy rides or simply go for bicycle rides. Siapa yang dah lama tak naik basikal tuh..really should go for bicycle rides..bukan slalu bole naik basikal... Bicycle rides are for free during the second visit. As soon as we entered TTI, my children quickly grabbed the bicycles and in a minute they were out of my sight!. I had to scream my lung out nak suruh dorang slow down.. . Mak dia dahlah berat, penat nak kena kejar2 as the park covers a very huge area.
The first stop was at Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin mosque in Brunei. The golden domed mosque was designed by an Italian architect .
Baru sampai 2 monuments, my son complained that he was starving. So, we had to turn back and headed towards the cafe which is near the entrance to TTI. Biasalahkan, budak2 especially my boy yang sihat tu- asyik ingat makan je. Nak kene isi tangki dulu baru dia happy... The cafe is nice and clean while the food and beverages are not bad at all. We did get some free meal coupons so oklah..

On the way back, we saw some big, old trees which were left untouched during the construction of the place..macam berada di hutan..As I am a nature lover, memang appreciate sgt suasana hutan ni..
We stopped at the art gallery. My daughter and I tried our hands at Batik. Berangan jadi pelukis Batik jap..
There are some beautiful paintings on display and I fell in love with the banana painting by a local artist. Cantikkan? Such a beautiful painting. Boleh ambik buat goreng pisang??
The famous Crystal mosque
Tak penah lagi try TTI river cruise. Next time aje la.. Dah letih sangat..
Can't believe that we visited 21 monuments in 21 countries in just 2 hours!...My children enjoyed themselves so much. Just nak pesan, tak sesuai datang sini masa panas or in the afternoon..it's really really hot!
