How to get to Cherating From JB or Singapore?

Hai guys, may be you are about to plan your holidays to some places in the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia(Cherating,Kemaman or Kuala Terengganu).

There are two routes how to get there. First:Segamat-Kuantan Road. Second:Kota Tinggi Mersing Road.If you choose to use Segamat-Kuantan you should first hit the PLUS highway and then exit at Yong Peng.From Yong Peng to Segamat the road condition is quite good and the road is rather straight.There are places (extra lane) where you can overtake slower vehicles like lorries and trailers.It takes you about 4 to 5 hours from JB to Kuantan. You can have a stop at Muadzam Shah may be to fuel up your car or to go to toilet.After you reach Gambang you can choose to use the LPT highway.

Second route is Kota Tinggi-Mersing and Mersing-Pekan-Kuantan. This road is better in terms of its beautiful scenery.But the road is not that straight compared to Segamat-Kauanta.You have to drive carefully because there are many sharp corners there. If you opt to use this road do it during daytime. Remember that before you start your journey make sure that your car is in good condition.Never overtaking other vehicles at double line. All in all I would prefer to use the first route for some reasons.

How about accommodation? Some people like to stay in 4 or 5 star hotels. But to some people they just don't mind.
