We first start moving to Kuantan in November 2001. The first time we were here, it was a cultural shock for us. There were no raise building, no 24 hours convenient store, no hypermarkets… basically Kuantan was a boring town. There were not much choices of food to eat, places to go for shopping or even for sight seeing.
As years goes by, more and more buildings, housing areas, shopping complex and even hotels are developed. More and more tourists from other states come here for holidays. Among the favorite spots which attracts tourists to visit Kuantan are the Bukit Gambang Theme Park, Teluk Cempedak, Cherating beach, Sungai Lembing, and the Kuantan Town itself.
