Pekan
The Essential
Interesting
Situated close to the port town of Kuantan, tranquil Pekan is often neglected by tourists. However, this charming city, the former capital of Pahang, offers a warm welcome to those visitors who make it here. The Istana, or royal residences, bear witness to its rich history, while the city's shophouses ensure a hive of activity along the banks of the river.
