Kuantan

Kuantan is the largest city of the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia with a population of about half a million. It is also the capital of the state of Pahang.

Kuantan is located about halfway between Singapore (to the south) and Kota Bahru (to the north). The city is situated at the coast of the South China Sea near the mouth of the Kuantan River. The city is not a major tourist destination, rather a stopover point for island destinations (Tioman, Redang, Perhentians, etc.) along the East Coast. From Kuantan you can also also reach the popular beach in Cherating in less than an hour with the local Bus.

Pulau Lang Tengah

Pulau Lang Tengah is a small postcard island with only 3 resorts located halfway between Perhentian Island and Pulau Redang.

You can rock climb at 4 spots of the limestone hill that also hosts the famous Batu caves temple. Climing the walls is free of charge unless you want to take courses.

Best way to get there is by taxi which is around RM 12 from the city center (20 min drive if there is no traffic jam). Make sure the taxi driver drops you at the climbing walls and not at the hindu temple or you have to walk quite a bit.
