Hi, as part of our Malaysia trip, we have 6 nights on East coast Malaysia at beginning of October.
We want to do 4 nights on Kapas relaxing, then 2 nights in Cherating, before going to Kuantan to get flight to KL.
Question - i have read reports that Cherating is not very nice? True or false?
I have always wanted to go there, & missed the chance when travelling in 2005, & again in 2007.
I have already been to Perhentians & Redang, & have also been to Balok Beach (Swiss Garden) so wanted to go somewhere different this time. We just want a nice setting & somewhere to relax for a couple of days & maybe see the turtle sanctuary.
Some people have said its a ghost town, & a building site & most restaurants/bars have closed? Is this true?
Also, can anyone recommend a nice mid-range hotel in Cherating (cannot afford Club Med!).
