Pahang Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Pahang

Spanning across 400km along the east coast, Pahang is Peninsular Malaysia’s largest state and roughly occupies half of the eastern coast. Different than Malaysia’s more populous, industrialized western seaboard, Pahang offers visitors a chance to see cultural traditions that have long since died out elsewhere. Escaping the economic and social changes that rocked the western Malay Peninsula in the 19th century, Pahang’s relative isolation is further facilitated by the fact that it is cut off from the rest of the peninsula by a mountainous, jungle-clad interior. Largely rural and underdeveloped, Pahang is home to the primordial Taman Negara jungle and is located roughly three hours away from Kuala Lumpur. When the sun goes down Pahang’s nightlife really revs up – not as rowdy as Thailand’s after-dark scene nor as quiet as Brunei’s no-alcohol nighttime offerings, Pahang falls somewhere between these two categories. Worthy of particular mention are the pubs, bars and clubs in the Genting Highlands and Kuantan areas.
