I am very excited about this holiday times where we had the opportunity to visit the turtle conservation center located in Cherating. Children can see turtles live here. This place is situated next to Club Med Cherating. No admission fee is charged

Quite near the hotel. In fact you will pass this sanctuary 1st before you reach the hotel if you are coming from Kuantan. The kids were excited to see the turtles and their babies

Small state run sanctuary. Very informative. Can be visited in an hour just off the main road. Great to see the baby turtles.
