Kuantan used to be a quiet town but thanks to the various universities and education institute, there has been a large influx of people making Kuantan their second home.
Kuantan is known for it's beaches, fresh seafood and also nature activity. Don't miss out to visit the famous Teluk Cempedak Bay, Gua Charas and Panching waterfall
Kuantan is a great city to stay. You can find great cheap seafood restaurants at Tanjung Lumpur and go for sightseeing at Teluk Cempedak.
All is good except for the terrible traffic and of course, bauxite mining that turned most of the road to bright orange.
Very serious "Red pollution" around the city, especially near the Kuantan Port. My whole car turn red when entering into this "Red City".
How can the government allowed the serious bauxite pollution in this "used to be beautiful" city. I like the Cherating Beach, however, seriously concern about the pollution, better avoid it at the moment.
i love to go and buy fresh fis in the morning at pasar borong senangin. u can cheap and fresh seafood here.
dont forget to bargain.
Some of the beaches in Kuantan are nice. Sungai Lembing is fine for those nature seekers, the rainbow waterfalls is worth to visit, but need to be physically fit.
A very clean city with clean beaches to offer...especially at Pantai Telok Cempedak...plenty of parking .
Many restaurants that offer scrumptious cheap seafood and local delicacies. Public parks are rubbish- free...impressed by the cleanliness of the city.
Its best to travel in groups at least you can create your own activity and fun at night especially when there is no night life here
good for sightseeing along the kuantan river especially at night and can taste ikan bakar or seafood
Rustic Capital city of Pahang State that has many traditional food worth making the effort to visit and try the great food.
Quite a few of the beaches are still relatively unspoilt, but the more popular beaches are littered with rubbish everywhere.
This first impression of Kuantan while driving in from KL was red dust. This is something I don't see in the places I've been to in Malaysia.
The old tin mines (Sungai Lembing) is worth a visit especially the old town near the mines.
It's a small city famous for it's Teluk chempedak and Cherating beaches. Club Med is located in Cherating.
We actually traveling to Kuantan to visit our brother who teaches in UIAM. However, we managed to stay for a few hours at Teluk Cempedak and the kids loves the beach very much
a nice town not too busy with good beach and lot of excursions to be done. cherating beach nearby, so is waterfalls and caves.
good relaxing holiday in a not so busy city.
Small city but still quite a lot to do for 3 - 4 day stay. :) Nice food and can be relaxing for a few days.
Kuantan have good food. Try to ask the local on the best place to eat and they will happily guide you.
You can also ask hotel staff and they will assist.
Kuantan the biggest city in East Coast part of peninsula Malaysia. Obviously the liveliest city in East Coast.
Very relax... The have everything... food, beach, river, theme park ... Best for weekend breakaway
Relaxing for just a few nights is acceptable. More than that you might be boring and the only main attraction is nearby to Teluk Chempedak Bay.
You also can try their seafood at Tanjung Lumpur area. With a reasonable price and nice food.
There's a wonderful trip when we traveled to Kuantan. We went to Hafiz's Activities Centre and Hafiz brought us to saw fireflies.
That's the first time I saw fireflies and I can touched the fireflies that stopped on my hand.I liked the moment that all the fireflies flew to my sight.Strongly recommend Hafiz's Activities to you all.
many place to go. from the water park in gambang to sun bathing in teluk chempedak. just and have some fun!
Kuantan is one of the closest city from Kuala Lumpur which provide access to the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
It has all what one wants. There are many learning institution for children as well.
Stayed in Bukit Gambang drove all the way to Kuantan beach side for seafood dinner by the beach (Pak Su Restaurant - highly recommended - cheap and nice).
Bought dried seafood along the way, cheap and friendly.
Relaxation peaceful place and near to the beach.food prices are cheap and reasonable. But please not to visit during musim tengkujuh,risk of floods.
Quite good place to visit because you can find or looking for foods places, beach, shopping mall and nearest Sungai Pahang as well.
Kuantan is a small town, lots of small restaurants for food and easy drive to the beach, teluk cempadak
Kuantan is a nice place with lots of good food from Chinese, Malay and Indian culture, when you feel tired, you can find a massage or Spa shop anywhere.
A city that really does not have much to offer. So find a hotel that you can lock yourself and bring a pack of DVDs and cards to play with.
Relax, coz there really nothing outside... thats worth mentioning.
The worth places about Kuantan: 1) The beach, Pantai Balok. One of the best beach in Malaysia. It's windy soundly wave of sea is a place to feel peace.
2) The food, Pak Su Seafood Restaurant offers one of the best dishes in town. 3) The nature, Pandan Waterfall Sungai Lembing at Gambang is really nice place to have natural bath and great scenery view of it's waterfall. One of the best place to have romance picnic.
They have a nice food here, but the price is not cheap, I would say cost of living is quite high here.
