    Kuantan Fishing Boats

    Kuantan Fishing Boat

    Favorite thing: Kuantan and Malaysia in whole have some very well organized fishing boats and regulations. Each boat is marked in several different places so that the vessel is easily identifiable.

    In the picture below you can see that the boat's cabin is yellow, which shows the location where the ship is from. In this case it means it is from Parang, which is the province in which Kuantan is located.

    Also on the ship there is the letter "A". Basically there are three different letter designations on each ship. A means that it fishes the waters 0-12 km away from the shore in their province. B designates 12-40km, and C designates 40+kms.

    This is an interesting little tidbit to look out for while you are enjoying the Kuantan area!

    Kuantan's Coconuts

    by ATXtraveler Written Mar 6, 2006

    Favorite thing: Kuantan at one point was a major port for the British Empire, and in the early 1900's rows upon rows of coconut trees were planted. These days, you can see the effects of these trees, as they really are everywhere in the town.

    Our tour organizer actually commented that today, many of the trees go unserviced, as the owners of the land in which the coconuts are located actually have already made a ton of money in coconuts and have now moved on to bigger and better things like real estate in Kuala Lumpur.

    So... if there are any entreprenuers out there that want to start out small, there are some ready-made coconut plantations ready for harvesting in Kuantan!

    Walking on the banks of Kuantan River

    Favorite thing: Its a pleasant experience walking by the banks of Kuantan River. Do it early in the morning when the weather is still cool and just after dinner, strolling along with the crowd and watching people casting their fish hooks, and lovers walking while holding hands. Its a great experience.

    Fondest memory: The tranquil, peaceful and slow flowing Kuantan River, meandering and flowing to the sea between the Town itself and the mangrove swamp across.
