|Cherating Beach - Pahang
Asia's first Club Med is located here. The resort is a low-rise development with extensive landscaping. It has one of the finest beaches in the east coast. Although Club Med offers exclusive facilities to its guests, the rest of the beach is open to all.
This town, which is situated only 47km from Kuantan, is unique with its rustic atmosphere and warm hospitality of the village folk. 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 (Malay art of self-defense).
