    On the Road to Awana Kijal

    coconut trees

    Once you get off the East Coast Highway, take Highway 3 to Pelabuhan Kutantan and Kuala Terengganu. Drive past the Cherating beach area, and continue onwards past the outskirts of Cukai/Kemaman - all the while looking out for the Kuala Terengganu signs.

    Immediately after the long row of lemang stalls, look out for the Awana Kijal Beach & Golf Resort signs.

    Total travel time from KL=4.5 hours.

    PS
    Remember to take a break- stop for some delicious keropok lekor at the stalls by the road-side.
    RM1.00 should buy you about 5 pieces. Keropok Lekor is a type of deep-fried fish paste served with sweet chilli sauce. It is an east coast delicacy!

    Getting to Kijal from KL-Part 1

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Nov 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near Janda Baik

    From PJ, Damansara Utama, 1 Utama, drive past Ikea, and onto the LDP expressway that goes towards Kepong, Genting, Kuantan. From this toll booth, it is 255 km to Kuantan.

    Follow the signs to Kuantan and you'll find yourself on the elevated highway thus by-passing Kepong town. At the end of this expressway, continue to follow the Kuantan and East Coast Highway signs. Takes about 10-12 minutes from the first toll gate to get to Batu Caves.

    You are now getting onto the Karak Highway (Metramac Toll), which takes you to Genting, Bukit Tinggi and Janda Baik. Kampung Janda Baik is shown on the right of the picture.
    This road is windy and has a reputation of being a killer stretch - please stick to the speed limit of 90 km/h to avoid any accidents.

    Rest stop-Maran-Part III

    Maran Rest Area

    The East Coast highway is still pretty new. Consequently, the toilets at the rest areas are new and relatively clean. Some of the rest stops have petrol stations (chiefly Petronas) and food as well. The one pictured here, Maran, has a surau and toilets and stalls that sell drinks, snacks and cut fruit.

    arch

    After you exit the Karak Highway, follow the Kuantan signs. You'll soon get onto a bridge with a pretty arch. Here you will see road signs with distances to:
    Lanchang
    Maran
    Kuantan

    Side trip: There is an elephant sanctuary at Kuala Gandah, near Lanchang. This elephant sanctuary can also be reached via Karak town
