Over the past decade, rapid development has pushed Kuantan into the Malaysian East Coast’s most important social and economic hub. Kuantan is the capital of Pahang with some lovely nature. Though it is not renowned for tourism, it is still well worth exploring for Malaysians, with quite a few landmarks. Many activities are centred on the stunning beaches that hug the town, but mosques and natural splendours also play an important role.
TOP KUANTAN ATTRACTIONS
The golden beaches that flank Kuantan are undoubtedly the city’s highlight. There are several beaches just minutes from the downtown area including Teluk Cempedak and Batu Hitam. However, there are other sites like Cherating, which is a popular beach town some 30 minutes from downtown Kuantan. There is a magnificent Club Med hotel located here.
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 Waterfall 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.
