Kuantan is the state capital of Pahang, the largest state in the Malaysian Peninsula. It is situated near the mouth of the Kuantan River and faces the South China Sea. Since the late 1800s inland tin mining and rubber plantations attracted settlers. Today it is an administrative centre and port, and tourism is a major industry. It is famous for its production of handicrafts, batik cloth and fish products. The town is quite small but the State's mosque, with its statuesque beauty and stained glass windows draws tourists, as do the nearby beaches, which are ideal for water sports such as windsurfing.

Kuantan features prominently in the first part of Nevil Shute's 1949 novel A Town Like Alice. Kuantan is known to tourists for its nearby waterfalls (such as the Sungai Padan Waterfall), town parks (such as the Gelora Park, Teruntum Mini Zoo and Agriculture Park), river cruise, and cuisine – don’t leave without dining on grilled fish with keropok (famed local fish crackers), satay sold by street vendors, and typical Indian dishes. Don't miss the great shopping at the modern Malls, and search out local handicrafts.

In the town of Pancing, 24 km south, are the Gua Carah Caves that are well worth visiting. There is an ancient Buddha there, and is accessible to folk of all ages. Also nearby at Pekan – the Royal City – you can visit the Sultan's Palace and the State Museum with its history of Pahang and its royal family. About 40 km inland are two theme parks: Bukit Gambang Resort City, a large water theme park, and Bukit Gambang Safari Park. The Sungai Lembing Museum, about 26 km north of Kuantan, relates the rich and interesting history of the town's mining industry; then visit the mine tunnel nearby.
