Kuantan

Kuantan is the capital of Pahang, with natural attractions due to its position facing the South China Sea and some famous keropok.

The Heroes Museum is the perfect day out for culture vultures in Kuantan. Take advantage of the peaceful atmosphere, ask about any one-off exhibitions, buy something from the gift shop or just admire the treasures of the past.

The Wan Fo Tien Temple is a long-standing place of worship that has a rich history. Photograph the symbolic features of this fascinating place, learn its history and discover why it is so popular with visitors to the area.

If you love to shop, head to the stores and stalls at the Natural Batik Factory. It is a vibrant attraction full of clothes and accessory stores and fresh food venues.

Gelora Park is among the most visited natural escapes around Kuantan. Follow the paths through botanical displays, take a few photos, or just listen to the birdsong. This park is the perfect place to unwind.

Take your family to a visit to Taman Teruntum Mini Zoo, the premier zoo in Kuantan. If you are pushed for time, collect a map so you don’t miss any of the zoo highlights.
