    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).

    Enjoy the Balok Beach

    Balok Beach

    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.

    Beserah Beach

    Beserah is a fishing village and is well-known for salted fish. It is situated 10km from Kuantan.

    A batik factory and many cottage handicraft workshops producing items made mostly of sea shells and local plant materials (dried nuts, leaves) can be found in Beserah.

    At the parking bay, there are some Malay eateries.

    Taman Gelora

    Peaceful haven by the seaside

    Contrary to its name, Taman Gelora (Gelora literally mean rough in context of sea) is tranquil and great place to relax. It is a park with jogging track built by the seaside. Many placid lakes and ponds in the park add natural charms to this place. Abundant pines trees here provide much protection from the harsh sunlight to joggers. It is also a popular place for outdoor wedding photography due to its scenic and peaceful surroundings.

    The Wan Fo Tien temple (or the Ten Thousand Buddhas’ Hall) is a Buddhist temple on the outskirt of Kuantan town, on the road to Sungai Lembing... The RM8mil temple administered by the Pahang Buddhist Association was set up in 1967... The temple is usually a hive of activity every evening when scores of devotees visit it to pay homage to the deities or just to enjoy the scenic view of the surroundings or to feed the fishes and tortoises in the ponds with bread crumbs...

    The main attraction of the temple is a 5.5m high statue of The Buddha made of a piece of white Han jade imported from Sichuan province and sculptured in Beijing, China... The walls of the main prayer hall are decorated with 15,743 pieces of tiles with the image of Buddha on each piece... Besides this, there is also the statues of the 18 immortals, as well as statues of little monks placed at strategic spots...

    The main aim of the temple is to remind the people of the teachings of Buddha and to make the premises more attractive to visitors... Its yearly religious activities include dharma talks, meditation classes for adults and dharma classes for children... The temple and its ground eludes peace and quiet for visitors to relax and meditate...

    About 30mins drive from Kuantan city centre, this secluded waterfall is just the place to getaway for a fun time splashing away in the cold mountain water. Perfect for family picnics and also as a camping ground.

    The grounds of Kuantan Buddist Temple encompasses a lake & hill view, the best feng shui ever - water and hill. We bought 3 packets of bread to feed the fishes & turtles in the lake, and within minutes, the bread is gone.

    There are trwo beaches devided by a small jungle. The local authority has built a fibre bridge on a concrete support to link both beaches. Walk along the bridge, if you are lucky, you will meet with beautiful flowers and naughty monkeys.

    Listen To Bird Calls

    by mylias Updated Apr 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking the streets of Kuantan at dusk or at dawn you can hear bird calls, at dusk they are about to go to sleep and at dawn they are about to fly away searching for food. This is especially so where the streets are still lined with trees. At Jalan Bukit Ubi and Jalan Tun Dr Ismail for example.

    However during broad daylight you can still hear bird calls but mostly man made through speakers. Read my blog;

    This delightful beach only 5km from the town of Kuantan, is the site of several world class hotels. It is an excellent beach for water sports activities like sailing, surfing, skiing & sunbathing. Recently, the sole fast food outlet McDonald's carried out a major renovation to beautiful and expand its business premises. A stone's throw away is the famed Hyatt Regency Resort. There are also several nightspots and seafood restaurants which offer a variety of dishes at reasonable prices.

    Balok Beach at Swiss Garden Resort & Spa

    Balok beach is about 15km north of Kuantan & is a paradise for avid wind-surfers. Most of the activities revolve around the many international class resorts & hotels located at the beach. Truly perfect & serene with soothing tropical breezes, swaying casuarinas, unending white sand in harmony with the azure blue sea.

    And the sun rising....

    During my recent visit to Kuantan, I put a nite @ Hyatt Regency Teluk Chempedak.

    I have always wanted to catch a sun rise by the beach but normally I wont have the opportunity to do so.

    I was lucky on that day when I was given a room on a ground floor where I can just go out from the verandah straight to the beach.

    At first, I thought I have miss it but my patience paid off.

    So, if u got the chance dont miss the beautiful sun rise in Teluk Chempedak, Kuantan!

    Climbing Panorama Hill

    by melberrys Written Feb 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By "climb", I mean climb the stairs. For beginners and casual tourists, it would be a fine place. But for those who wants the hiking/trekking experience, you need to go to nearby hills (there are a lot of other trails in the village), but mind you, the stairs are tiring to climb. I saw a hiker panting on the way up and had his knees wobble going down. So, yeah, this place is not recommended for those who have knees problem.

    The view up there is breathtaking. You can see Lembing River and nearby village, and on the other side of the hill is the view of untouched greenery on nearby hills.

    It is advisable to climb it before dawn, about 6am. It is the sunrise view you don't want to miss. During my trip, the sun unfortunately was hidden under thick fog and clouds, but the view of the fog laying on the greens are also very amazing.
