Parks and natural landmarks also entice travellers. The Elephant Sanctuary is the perfect place to witness elephants in a safe environment, and the Teruntum Mini Zoo boasts an impressive night safari. Close to the beach at Cherating is a rare turtle sanctuary too, where sea turtles venture to lay eggs each year. Naturally, this landmark is well protected. Several waterfalls, including the picturesque Sungai Pandan Water Fall and Jerangkang Water Fall, will lure nature lovers too.
The city’s well-known State Mosque is found in the heart of the downtown area, and welcomes hundreds of visitors daily. Close to the mosque stand a large number of colonial-style buildings that are also well worth exploring.
Restaurants and Bars
