Roti Bakar Beserah

This is a roadside stall selling different version of eggs on toasts. Crunchy and fluffy. This place is always crowded in the morning. Must try their roti titta as their kaya is very flavorful and not too sweet.

Sungai Pandan Waterfall

Probably one of the cleanest waterfalls in a Malaysia as it’s well maintained frequently. A really scenic waterfall where no hike or trek is needed as it is only 100m away from the parking spot.

Mustafa Cendol
Lightly colored cendol with a more strongly-flavored coconut milk. Rojak biasa was decent.

Puteh Beach Bar


One of the best bars in Kuantan with nice powdery sand. Best spot would be the bean bags by the sand where you can enjoy the breeze and sound of the waves.

Ana Ikan Bakar Petai 3

A piece of Kuantan you should congregate at, for that gastronomy experience. Of course, that is for those whom like to appreciate dinner within a bustling festivities environment.

Kuantan Pickers & Kedai Kopi

Nicely vintage setup that resembles old school style kopitiam. Limited choice of menu but it’s definitely a good place for breakfast to hang out with friends.

22, Jalan Besar, 25000 Kuantan, Pahang

Great Starbucks cafe with a nice view of the sea and beach. It has two levels with ample sitting place. You can never go wrong with sipping a cup of coffee by the beach!
