Well, after like 2 full weeks in Kuantan, we finally visited the Gelora Park in Kuantan last weekend. It's one of the big parks in kuantan, just off the main road towards the Telok Chempedak beach.

We initially planned to enjoy the beach there... but this is definately not a beach park... the beach is, let's say... not so clean... cuz i think its kinda near some river outlets and near town and such... so we stayed closer inland... where it was all fine... phoebe enjoyed it though, happily played with the fine sand... as u can see from the pix.


The park was beautiful with great trees and some lakes... looks man-made.... they stank too... i think it's due to very bad maintenance... but the view was great... a jogging path snakes all about the park, with a few children play areas scattered around... not forgetting the awesome sea breezes... really awesome wind!


Another highlight was the night market, held every Sunday near the park area... starts about 5.00pm... Joanna recommended the murtabak (mince chicken with onions,potatoes & eggs wrapped in dough)... it was OK lah... Lekor's were abundant too... i recommend u go early just for the parking... walk the park then go check out night market. (It's basically like KL's pasar malam)


We'll be back for the children's playground and the view... but not the beach...
