Our Birthday Beach Vacation in Kuantan
We actually planned on celebrating our birthdays (mine was on Sep 21 and Hubby's on Sep 23) in Krabi. Alas, COVID-19 happened.
Taking advantage of the many promo hotel rates during MCO, we made a reservation at Hyatt Regency Kuantan instead. We booked our rooms for three nights for just RM300+ per night!
We still get our beach vacation after all!
It was so nice to just sit and listen to the sound of waves. But we didn't just spend our vacation in our room!
I had made an early online check-in in the morning and received an alert that our room was ready so we managed to check-in early.
At around 4pm, we decided to jalan-jalan around the nearby beaches. We took out our foldies for a ride, and cycled from Teluk Cempedak to Dataran MPK and back, stopping along the way at Taman Gelora, Laman Teruntum and Pantai Teruntum.
It was quite fun, and it was easy and safe to navigate our bicycles around Kuantan's rather heavy Saturday evening traffic.
It was a short 20K ride, just nice as an "opening ride" for our vacation because we planned to cycle to some beaches in Terengganu the next day!
After the ride, and because we skipped lunch, we were looking forward to some nice dinner. We didn't really want to venture out too far so we opted to eat at one of the stalls in Teluk Cempedak.
We saved the more indulgent makan for another day/night.
