Kuala Terengganu

Kuala Terengganu, KT in short, is located at the east coast of the Peninsula Malaysia and at the mouth of the Sungai Terengganu (or Terengganu River) that empties here into the South China Sea. It is the capital of the state of Terengganu, which forms, together with Kedah and Kelatan, the heartland of Malay culture. KT is a good stop for one or 2 days before moving on along the east coast or towards the National Park / Tasik Kenyir.

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.

Getting There
To get to Batu Kucing (malay: Cat Rock), you need to hike up and down the jungle trail that starts at the end of the beach at D'Coconut Resort (East Wing, behind the rocks). This will take you past the Turtle Watch Project to Turtle Bay. Walk along the beach until you find the start of another jungle tral about 2/3 down the beach. Another quick uphill hike and you are there. It takes about 10 sweaty minutes from D'Coconut Resort (East Wing) to Batu Kucing
