Tranquil fishing village, picturesque hills, the world’s oldest rainforest and deserted white sand beaches. These are some of the natural ingredients that give Malaysia a rustic appeal. The locals are also known to be generous with their warm and hospitable ways and treat every guest like a family friend.
Malaysians enjoy a comfortable pace of life that leaves room for them to indulge in their favorite pastimes like top-spinning and kite-flying. One good way to experience Malaysia’s charm is to take a trip up the East Coast. Also visit Kuantan, here the clear waters of the South China Sea and endless beaches lure sun-seekers. Its royal past with the rich cultural heritage is another big attraction.
Kuantan’s beaches are blessed with warm, clear waters and cool winds for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing, fishing and other sea sports. Nearby at Chendor beach, lucky visitors might catch a glimpse of leatherback turtles laying their eggs at night between May and September each year.
