Kuantan

3
The capital of Malaysia's third-largest state, busy Kuantan remains generally untouristed, yet continues to grow as a residential urban community. Tourism in Kuantan mostly comes from travelers stopping here on their way to other destinations and attractions. The hub of commerce and activity along the port gives visitors a glimpse into the lives of authentic Malaysian city dwellers, while the beaches are refreshingly free of tourist trappings found on the surrounding islands. Kuantan is in Kuantan District. Plan my trip to Malaysia with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Where to stay in Kuantan

The growing economy of Kuantan has spurred a recent spate of modern midrange accommodation options popping up all over the city. Though this does not bode well for the budget-conscious, you'll still find excellent bed and breakfasts, hostels, hotels, and guesthouses with basic, clean rooms near amenities like the center of town, the city's bus station, and portside. If you're able to splurge a little, then a couple of luxury hotels exist here with air-conditioning, swimming pools, spa and massage treatment rooms, and high-speed Internet.
