Sungai Lembing is a tin mining town in Kuantan District, Pahang.The developed

Muzium Sungai Lembing

A museum highlighting the tin mining industry was opened in 2003.
The museum is housed in an old bunglow once used by the mine manager.

From Sungai Lembing we continue our journey to Trengganu following the coastal route.
We stopped at Chukai to have a tea break at the famous Hai Peng Kopi Tiam Restaurant.
This is my favourite stopped over every time when I travel from Paka to Kuantan. 
I used to work at Residence Resort Paka, now knowns as Qamar Paka after rebranding.
After tea break we drive straight to Dungun and stay overnight there
