Introducing Kuantan

Most travellers only stop in busy Kuantan, Pahang's capital and Malaysia's second biggest port, to break up long bus trips. We think this is a shame; while the city isn’t geared towards tourism, it is definitely interesting enough to warrant a day or two’s exploration, offering some of the coast’s best eating opportunities. The nearby beach of Teluk Chempedak is worth visiting as well.
