We'd read great things about a place called Pekan not far from Kuantan so jumped on a bus the next morning but once again the rain was seriously beating down so we had a picnic on a bench, bought an umbrella and gave up, headed back and caught the bus onto KL! Come on sun, where have you gone!!!!
Once our feet were on dry land again, we jumped on a couple of buses in the direction of Kuantan basically following the East coast! We managed to get on our most executive form of transport yet...a bus with only 3 seats across (2+1) - talk about leg room! The rain seemed to be following us unfortunately so we ended up only staying for one night in Kuantan (it has a great mosque)and enjoyed a great murtabak (like a spicy omelette) which Paul had to point at using a mop from the menu on the wall as they were struggling to understand us!! Very amusing!
