Cherating

Cherating is the only real backpacker hub at the east coast of the peninsula on the mainland. Offering plenty of affordable chalets and a relaxed atmosphere, it is good place to stop for a night or two on the way up or down the east coast. The beach itself is not that spectacular and misses the palm directly at the beach. But it has a good vibe and few things you can do like taking a tour or renting a kayak up the river into the mangroves. There is also an active surfer scene when the waves are right. Cherating is located about 30km or 1h by local bus north of Kuantan.

Taman Negara

Taman Negara National Park was established in Malaysia in 1938/1939 as the King George V National Park. It was renamed to Taman Negara after Independence, which literally means “national park” in Malay. The total area of Taman Negara is 4,343 km².

The tour to Chiling Waterfalls with certified nature guide Happy Yen starts around 8am in the morning. You will be back late in the afternoon. The tour includes lunch, tea and snacks at the waterfall and dinner. Yen is a very pleasant guy to spend the day with and he explains a lot about nature, religion and mental well-being. It's an enlightening and fun day far away from the hectic city life:

1) Buddhist Temple


2) Lunch in Kuala Kubu Bahru


3) Stop at Selangor Dam


4) Jungle Trek to Chiling Waterfall

It takes about 1.5h to get to the falls depending on the wheather. You need to cross the river 6 times, if the water level is high then Yen will use ropes for safety which will make the journey a bit longer. After a beautiful walk through the jungle you will be rewarded with the breathtaking waterfall where you get to cool yourself down in the water. If you go on a week day you might even be the only ones there!

5) Hot Springs

Yen will try to teach how to make your mind win over your body and dip you legs (if not your whole body) in the 42 degrees celcius hot water. I've failed miserably and only managed a few seconds wink

6) Dinner

Well deserved good food at the end of the tour

7) Return Ride

On the way back, Yen takes the scenic route on a smaller road through a lot of green before you are swallowed up again by the city near the Batu Caves
