Kuantan Shopping

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Kuantan

Kuantan is a town famous for its production of handicrafts and batik as well as local snacks such as keropok – dried fish crackers – and salted fish. It may be a long drive to Kuantan from Kota Bharu or Kuala Terengganu, but the town remains the most developed amongst the nearby east coast towns.

There are a few established shopping centres and malls in town; one of the most visited malls in the vicinity is the newly opened East Coast Mall – the biggest in town. The multi-storey Berjaya Megamall Kuantan fronts Jalan Tun Ismail and Kuantan Parade can be accessed either from Jalan Mahkota or Jalan Penjara – it has a large collection of retail stores in its two wings.

Alternatively, if you’re not in the mood to head to air-conditioned mega outlets, head on over to the Kuantan stadium on Sunday mornings – there’s a market here which sells local delicacies as well as daily groceries like poultry and vegetables. If you don’t make it out to this market head to the one held near the lake of Taman Gelora on Sunday evenings.
