The bus terminal in Kuantan is in Kompleks Makmur, from where you may take the bus. Taxis congregated just outside the terminal can take you to the city. You can take your pick from small compact cars to large people movers with reasonable rates. Rates of taxis varies time to time.

Travel Tips for Kuantan

Astana Golf & Country Club

by chiabh

The 18-holes par-72 course plays to a short 5,914m from the blue tees... with the Floral (1st) Nine playing to 2,883m and the Palm (2nd) Nine to a longer 3,031m... The course is undulating with water coming into play (either hazard or lateral) in all the holes... The course is rather hot due to the non-maturing trees... The club has a big clubhouse with the registration counter by the side of the pro-shop... There are conference room facilities and function halls for wedding and seminars... Besides the man and lady changing rooms, there is also a golfer's terrace... The course maintenance is found to be wanting...

The Astana Golf & Country Club has been closed indefinitely since beginning of 2009 due (mainly) to mis-management as well as poor patronage...

Sungai Lembing - Underground Tin Mine

by yipsufen

Today Sungai Lembing is likened to a Malaysian "Cowboy Town" - the place time forgot.

The tin mining was the sole reason people came. A town surrounded by hills on three sides, Sungai Lembing prospered and the town pulsated with the excitement and activity befitting a wealthy town.

Traces of its heyday and prosperity can still be found in the old mansions and well designed homes.

Visit the old market square, where one of the highlights is the well-known local home made noodles. Also pop into the home bakery, to taste the crisp and sweet coconut flavour of their local coconut biscuits.

The roads leading into the village are narrow and scooters or bicycles are the preferred mode of transport. There are high hanging bridges made from steel ropes and planks for crossing the river.

View the Museum of Sungai Lembing, with the objectives of propagating the information and exhibiting the proofs of its history. Visitors will be entertained with the spectacular knowledge on the subterranean tin mining, which was once acknowledged as the largest subterranean mine in the world.

The museum is 40 minutes' drive from Kuantan. Admission is free. You have to present your Identity Card for registration at the security booth at the main entrance.

The museum is not big but it offers a modest range of exhibits on tin mining. You will learn the breif history of Sungai Lembing, the process of tin mining and the british tycoons in the 1930s and 1940s. Some items used by the british tycoons are on displayed here such as telephones, typewriters, teapots, etc.

Enjoy the Balok Beach

by afsarbaf

Balok beach is also very close to the Kunatan city. It is also an ideal place for the sufers. This beach seemed to me to be less crowded than the Telok Chempedak Beach and more facilities for sailing and surfing. The stronger waves and soothing breeze makes it an indeal location for the tourist to enjoy.

Taman Teruntum

by mary2u99

This is a small park its located opposite the golf course and is favourite amongs locals for picnic. There's a small mini zoo here and children playground and its greens with trees and flower plants.

My friend and his son tried the horse riding. Its expensive as they charge per head even for children. (RM10.00 per head).

Kuantan

"Kuantan (Recap of old memories)"

I believe it is a town which is uniquely different in its own way compare to other town. Its not so complicated roads are well equiped with sign boards that are easily guided. I find that the routes are easier to follow even though one has taken the wrong road. As for shopping, it is worth buying tit bits (such as keropok (all types with different flavours), salted fish, shark fins etc) at Jalan Gabang. The best one is 'Sin Ken Hung' which is on the left side of the road. Prices are very reasonable where it offers a great variety of titbits. It is on the way out of kuantan (using Jalan Besar) and heading towards KL at Batu 3.5.

I think the best place to stay is Grand Continental Hotel (if you are looking for reasonable rates) as it is just next to Berjaya Megamall and other shops where all kinds of food are readily available. They range from chinese food (such as vegetarian rice, pan mee & chicken rice) right up to kopitiam ('Kemaman' Kopitiam is one of the best so far, although some said it is '1940' kopitiam), mamak food, etc. These shop can be found opposite B. Megamall (along Lorong Tun Ismail), all within walking distance. Not forgetting the 'Keropok Lekor' which I miss so much as I remember it was so nice to eat that I ate 20 pieces for my lunch. This can be found near kampung area on theway to Cherating. And we also tried grilled fish (& other seafood) at Tanjung Lumpur which is near the beach(about 8 minutes drive from the town). There are many shops offering the same food but it is recommended that the shop 'Anna Restaurant" (No.9) is the best.
