Cherating

The first club in South East Asia of Club Med is located in Cherating at the South China Sea. And because it's the first, they got the best spot, although the whole region has fine sandy beach.
After Club Med came the other resorts. like: the Legend, the Impiana Hotel, Holiday Villa and the Residence Inn. All of them are beautiful hotels/resorts. It's a mixture between traditional and modern resorts.
Cherating is situated 47 km from Kuantan. It is unique with its rustic atmosphere and warm hospitality of the village people. Cherating also offers you the chance to shop for handicrafts and see cultural performances. Village maidens nimbly weave the pandanus leaves into mats, hats, bags, and other inexpensive lightweight souvenirs. Cultural shows include wayang kulit (shadow play) and silat (Malaysian art of self-defense).


Cherating is approximately 47km north of Kuantan and 133km from Kuala Lumpur. There two ways of getting there - by air (to Kuantan, then taxi or bus) or by car.
It takes about 4 hours to drive from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan using the inland Karak Highway and its another hour from Kuantan to Cherating. The drive alone is an interesting experience as you pass primary jungles, palm and rubber plantations, historic towns and quirky pit stops.

  • Beserah is a fishing village about 10 km north of Kuantan. Beserah is noted for some of the best salted fish in the region. An unusual sight is the way Beserah fishermen utilize water buffaloes on the beach to transport baskets of fish from the boats to the processing centers. These water buffaloes are also used in the padi fields. Beserah has several batik factories and cottage industries which produce handicraft from sea shells and pandanus leaves.
    Please, ask in your hotel, what's the best time to go there the water buffaloes.
