booked.net

Kuantan is the state capital of Pahang, on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

Get in
By bus
Kuantan's long distance (intercity) bus station is located at Terminal Makmur. (Beside Stadium Darul Makmur). However, the Kuantan's new Integrated Bus station located at Indera Mahkota (11 km from Kuantan). To/from Kuala Lumpur: Kuantan is about 4 hours from Kuala Lumpur by bus.

By plane
Kuantan's small Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Airport (IATA: KUA) is about 15 km southwest of the city. The airport currently serves a few daily flights from Kuala Lumpur-KLIA (40 mins) on Malaysia Airlines. It also commences service from Penang airport via Fireflyz from March 2011 onwards.

The airport also serves an international flight to Singapore by Firefly 4x a week.

By car
Opened in 2004, the Karak Highway and East Coast Expressway connect Kuantan to Kuala Lumpur, and the distance of approximately 250 kilometers can be covered in 3-3.5 hours. The East Coast Expressway is served by stop-over areas that are equipped with toilets, sundry shops and food stalls. You may exit at either the Gambang or Kuantan exit. Both expressways are toll roads. Travelling the entire journey via the expressways costs RM27.60 for a car.

Federal route 2 also links Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan. As it is an ordinary road, it has no toll. However it is a somewhat slower route than the expressway as there are traffic lights along the way and a lower speed limit.

Get around
The public transport system in Kuantan has recently improved with the introduction of RapidKuantan bus system. Getting around town is possible with several routes and the buses run to and fro between main hub and other spots around town, connecting to Sungai Lembing, Teluk Chempedak and Bukit Gambang Waterpark Resort. The RapidKuantan buses run at the frequency of 30 minutes interval which uses the hub behind Terminal Makmur (currently UTC Building) as a central interchange. The fair is RM2.00 for distance within town, and RM4.00 for destination outside town.

  3. Sata, fish paste and coconut wrapped in coconut leaves and barbequed; good with fresh fruit juice.
