Across Pahang you will see a fusion of cultures – Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous tribes – resulting in a uniquely blended community with rich heritage and diverse cultures, customs and clothes. Visit the handicraft centres - Teluk Chempedak, Sungai Karang and Cherating – where you’ll find and array of traditional goods such as the Songket (hand woven gold and silver brocade); Baltik, wax-printed fabric; and many household items made from pandanus leaves, traditional woodcarvings and shell crafts.
Enjoy a relaxing beach/island holiday when you stay at our Tioman Island and Cherating Beach hotels. Tioman Island’s flora, fauna and underwater scenery are excellent. Cruise in a glass-bottom boat, go swimming, snorkelling or scuba diving to see the corals, sponges and marine life in the crystal blue waters. Soak up the sun on the golden beaches where you’ll witness spectacular sunrises and sunsets at Juara and Salang beaches. Visit the Turtle Sanctuary and Information Centre on Chendor Beach, where you’ll usually see turtles landing on the beach between April and September. Hire a bicycle and explore the island, and make sure you sample the local favourites at the food stalls. Explore the tropical rainforests and go trekking to see waterfalls, lush vegetation and wildlife. The calm blue waters off Cherating Beach are perfect for water sports such as kayaking, sailing and windsurfing.
Visit the highlands resorts and stay at Cameron Highlands , Genting Highlands or Fraser’s Hill and enjoy the varied charms each region has to offer: rolling hills, craggy mountains, tropical rainforests, abundant wildlife and tea plantations. Visit the Taman Negara National Park, where canopy walkways allow you to see the forests from a different angle. Enjoy challenging jungle trekking to view waterfalls, mountains, secret caves and lakes, or experience white-water rafting down the rivers through the mountains.
