Malaysia is becoming an increasingly popular holiday destination. White sand beaches fringe the sunrise-drenched coasts and jewel-like islands. Wooden kampung houses squat amid coconut groves and rubber plantations and everyone seems to be smiling about how wholesome life can be.
Pahang, the largest state in Peninsular Malaysia is an ideal destination for anyone looking for an adventure, loves the nature and lots of outdoor activities. It is covered by verdant rainforests which are among the oldest in the world and boasts some 210 kilometres of splendid South China Sea coastline on its eastern flank which offers the finest in beaches such as the famous Cherating, Teluk Chempedak and Pulau Tioman.
Pulau Tioman, acknowledged as one of the world’s most beautiful islands is a popular retreat for sun seekers and diving enthusiasts for its gorgeous beaches and diving spots where marine life thrives.
Mountainous-forested interior dominates the state and culminates in Taman Negara, Malaysia’s largest National park with the focus point, Gunung Tahan – the Peninsula Malaysia’s highest peak. The rainforests in Malaysia are among the oldest in the world: roughly 130 million years old.
Pahang is warm and humid throughout the year with temperatures ranging from 21 degrees to 33 degrees Celsius. The highlands are definitely cooler with temperatures falling down to 16 degrees Celsius at night. The temperature rarely exceeds 23 degrees Celsius during the day in these highlands.
The five major highlands retreats and resorts of Malaysia, Cameron Highlands, Genting Highlands, Fraser’s Hill, Bukit Tinggi and Janda Baik are also within Pahang and are favourite getaway spots to both the locals and tourists who seek an escape from the tropical heat.
Cameron Highlands, with its cool climate, is home to Malaysia’s tea, vegetable and flower growing industries. Fraser’s Hill which is only about 100 km from Kuala Lumpur, is another cool hill resort dotted with quaint and colonial holiday bungalows. Genting Highlands is an hour by road from KL and is the perfect escapade for those seeking relaxation in a cool mountain setting.
Kuantan, the state capital, is not only fast developing as a commercial town but is also a popular seaside resort. Pekan, the royal town is situated 45 km south of Kuantan.
