Theme Parks · Scuba & Snorkeling · Gardens
Pahang, the largest state on Peninsular Malaysia, encompasses the Pahang River basin. The highland area of the state features rolling hills of agricultural land, along with temperate retreats, which were established during the colonial era with luxury hotels and amusements. The rainforest region hosts many rare and endangered animals, such as tigers, elephants, and tapir. The coastal areas offer flatter terrain along limestone cliffs that descend down to fine, sandy beaches. Out at sea, a set of islands provides great dive spots with coral formations.
