Apart from Sg. Lembing’s museum, there are other nearby attractions as the area is endowed with mountains, waterfalls, and rivers. It is worth climbing Bukit Panorama, especially to see the glorious sunrise over the surrounding green hill slopes.
Many visitors come here just to do this, especially at weekends, and liven up the otherwise dead town. However logging activities are having a detrimental effect on the eastern hills of Sg. Lembing.
Some 16km from Sg. Lembing is Gunung Tapis Nature Park, where one can camp, fish, and shoot the rapids. Gunung Tapis itself is 1,512m high. On the way to Sg. Lembing is Gua Charas, a temple cave that is a popular tourist destination. Sungai Pandan Waterfall, 29km from Kuantan, is easily accessible from the road and is a nice place for a picnic.
Very soon, this hanging bridge is to be demolished because it is old and danger and the new bridge next to it was built. I illegally was on a sealed bridge. Some of the wood already disappeared.
Sungai Lembing town is very quiet now. Most of the residence are in their late 50 to 70. The younger generations have move to the big city for work and come for visit only in the weekend.
The Museum would be taking up most of the time.
