Most travellers pause briefly in Pahang's capital and Malaysia's second-biggest port, to break up long bus trips. This is a shame; while the city isn’t especially geared towards tourism, it is definitely interesting enough to warrant a day or two’s exploration. There's an excellent new museum, many good places to eat and the nearby beach of Teluk Chempedak with upmarket resort accommodation.
