Hill Resorts
A big protion of the Main Range / Titiwangsa Range is in the state of Pahang. Many high mountains in Peninsular Malaysia are located Pahang. The highest in Peninsular Malaysia is Mount Tahan in Taman Negara but national parks must not be developed.

So Pahang made other mountains into hill resorts. The most popular in Malaysia is Genting Highlands. It is just 64 km from Kuala Lumpur. This resort is more of a place for entertainment than for relaxation. Genting Highland's theme is City of Entertainment.

About an hour drive from Genting Highlands is another hill resort called Bukit Tinggi / Berjaya Hills Resort. This resort is a place for relaxation with botanical garden, japanese garden and boutique spa hotel. Tourist can also take a van up from Berjaya Time Square.

Kuantan
Kuantan has very few places of interest to visit. However, if you want to go to places around Kuantan or other places of interest in Pahang, Kuantan has express bus terminal called Makmur Bus Terminal and local bus terminal to cover Pahang area.

I did not go anywhere in Kuantan because I took it as a stop-over to other places. The only place I went was the Esplanade where locals go fishing and tourist go for cruise to see fireflies. Jetty Shahbandar is located at on end of the Esplanade.

Kuantan has a museum called Tokoh Museum. It is located near the Sultan Ahmad Shah Mosque. When I went there on one Staurday, it was closed.

About Pahang, 'A Gift of Nature'
Pahang is a state located on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Its latitute coordinate is about 3o45'N and longitude coordinate is about 102o30'E. Pahang has population of about 1.543 million (2009 estimates) with about 65% Malays, 15% chinese and 4.4% indians. Majority of its people speaks Bahasa Malaysia / Malay language with some speaking English.

Pahang has a land area of 35,964 km2. It is the biggest state in Peninsula Malaysia. The Main Range (Titiwangsa Range) passes through the western side of Pahang. This made Pahang rich in flora, fauna and also natural ecological structures like caves, lakes and rivers.

The jungle consists of tropical rainforest, recreational forest and mangroves forest. The most popular tropical rainforest would be Taman Negara / National Park which is one of Malaysia's national parks. There are natural lakes like Lake Bera and Lake Chini. The rivers are also popular for white-water rafting activities.

Kuantan is the capital of Pahang. It is located around the mouth of Kuantan River facing South China Sea. Due to this, it faces the North-East monsoon from November to March. During this monsoon season, I would recommend you to visit the western side of Pahang that is the hill resorts area.
