Everything you need to know about Kuantan

Over the years, rapid modernisation and development has turned Kuantan into a fast-growing city from what was originally a quaint, quiet town. And because of its beautiful beaches, especially those in Cherating, Kuantan now attract multitudes of tourists and locals who want to enjoy the sun and sand.

Further up north lies the state of Terengganu with its own myriad of attractions. The state is rich with Malay culture and traditional handicrafts.

The local artisans are heavily involved in the production of silk fabrics that are woven into 'songkets', Muslim prayer hats and 'batik', a cloth coated with intricate patterns that reflect floral prints and marine life. Woodcarving is along popular along with traditional kite-flying, using the 'Wau' - a large dome-like kite.

When it comes to visiting Malaysia, make sure you do not leave the East Coast out of your travel hit list. It's a Malaysian experience you don't want to miss!
