From Kuantan you can also also reach the popular beach in Cherating in less than an hour with the local Bus.

Low Yat is the place go to buy electronic and high-tech stuff like computers, laptops , computer parts and accessories, cameras, mobile phones, blanks discs etc.

There a few big stores in Low Yat but mostly it's small open shops and booths so it feels almost like a market.

The basement has ATMs, a few restaurants and a decent food court.

The first 2 floor are mainly camera and mobile phones whereas at the upper 3 floors you find everything and anything concerning computers, notebooks etc.
On the 4th floor you find the large IT stores like Thunder Match and All IT.

Most shops have A4-sheets with the price list so it’s best to collect some of them and compare prices.
