Explore the Beauty of East Coast and Kuantan

The East Coast is the traditional and authentic side of Malaysia, based more around fishing villages, unspoiled beauty and a plethora of stunning islands.

This is certainly one of the least developed areas of the country. It’s devoutly religious and relatively conservative, lending itself to a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere – perfect if your goal is relaxation but a little stiff if you’re looking for friendly locals and fun evenings. Trekking is a great idea here as it’s an ideal place to find verdant forests untouched by tourism.

Kuantan is the largest city on the East Coast and the capital of the state of Pahang. It’s a lovely beach city with stretches of golden sand and pretty mosques, but even here isn’t really designed for tourists and it feels refreshingly genuine. The food here is spectacular too, thanks to the rich bounty of the sea.

Why visit East Coast and Kuantan?

  • A short boat trip to the unspoiled islands off the coast
  • Kuantan has some very pretty beaches that have not be over developed through tourism – try Teluk Campedak as you can arrange boating excursions or enjoy the range of watersports

  • There are a number of great natural sights such as the Panching Caves and the Berkelah waterfall
  • A surprisingly diverse choice of shopping options from modern shopping malls to authentic night markets
