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.
