Perhentian Islands

The Perhentian Islands (Pulau Perhentian in Bahasa Malaysia) lie approximately 10 nautical miles (19 km) offshore the coast of northeastern Malaysia in the state of Terengganu, approximately 40 miles (64 km) south of the Thai border. The two main islands are Perhentian Besar (“Big Perhentian”) and Perhentian Kecil (“Small Perhentian”). Popular for it’s beaches, snorkeling and driving. Like a real postcard.

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.

Besides the cinema, the best reason to come here is to visit the Food Republic. It's a huge food court on Level 1 (don't get confused the ground floor at the Pavilion is marked as Level 3), so it's an underground floor. The variety of food is overwhelming. It's a good place to taste the different flavours of Malaysia and South-East Asia.

The Pavilion is located at the eastern end of Jalan Bukit Bintang, just across the posh Star Hill Gallery and Marriot Hotel.
