  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview Peninsular Malaysia’s largest state, Kuantan, is a place of cultural diversity like most of Malaysia and has a mix of Malay, Chinese, and Indian communities. All these communities practise their own religions and customs as is seen clearly from the variety of places of religious worship found all across the city. Worth a visit are the colourful Hindu Temple and the majestic State Mosque.

    Friendly to the explorer on foot, Kuantan also reveals its charms through its street life and attractions around the old and new shops and houses in the town centre. The most famous beach, Telok Chempedak is 4 kilometres out of town with a promenade offering a number of shops, souvenir stalls and restaurants.
