    Balok Beach

    Beaches in Kuantan have a flag post erected. At normal times, the red flag will be at half mast. This indicates that the beach is safe for swimmers / surfers. On the other hand, if you spot a fully raised red flag flying, you better refrain from the beach. The tides & waves will be high & dangerous for any beach activities.

    At night especially, ensure that females travel with someone else. I made the mistake of leaving a bar on my own one night. I was propositioned all the way home. Although nothing happened I felt extremely unsafe, with large groups of males following me.
