Chief’s Rest House

Historic hotel in Pekan

This circa-1929 colonial wooden building exudes atmosphere and style, and is reason enough to stop in Pekan. All rooms have wood floors, towering ceilings, TV and air-con. It’s nearly 1km from the bus terminal, so let the driver know that you want to get off near the rest house. The absence of wi-fi is a bit of a let-down though.

Dorm beds are also available.
