Oops…just realized I’ve yet to conclude my road trip to Kuantan tale and jumped to my recent trip to Singapore 😛
Here is the rest of the story……
On early Sunday morning (last day of our trip), we hesitantly picked ourselves up from the cozy hotel bed and headed to Sungai Lembing (a small sleepy town near Lembing River – 45min drive from Kuantan town) for a hike to Panorama Hill. This small hill is local favorite for exercise and bird’s eye view of the town below. Best is to climb in the morning as the temperature is much cooler and the misty view provides best photo opportunity and you might spot some pretty birds, as I did 🙂 At the end of your hike, the town’s market offer some of the best noodle soups and Nasi Lemak for breakfast.
Little info on Lembing town, this town got its name from a Malay word “Lembing” which means spear or “Spear Town”. This little town (a road divides two rows of old wooden shoplots, a wet market, museum and some administrative houses), is a well know location in the history of Pahang State for it’s Gold Mining activities during pre-independence days. Now, what remains is the same row of shops and a laid back ambiance which folks from the big cities come here to enjoy
