Hi all,

Has anyone been to the East Coast of Malaysia [main island] and the islands off Kuala Terengganu?

Just seeking some info on ease of travel, where to visit and what to see.

A few years ago we spent a couple of weeks in Cherating, a holiday resort village just north of Kuantan and not far south of Cukai. The city of Kuantan can be explored for a day and Lake Chini is good for an excursion. We also took a boat trip from Marang to Pulau Kapas and spent a day on the island walking and snorkeling - there were plenty of good, large fish to see and I assume it could be similar further north at Pulau Bidong. We flew in to Kuantan from KL and traveled around in a hire car. People who have been there more recently should be able to tell you more. Enjoy your planning! :)
