Kuantan is a municipality and the state capital of Pahang, Malaysia. It is located near the mouth of the Kuantan River and faces the South China Sea. In the first century Kuantan was a part of Chih-Tu empire.

In the 11th century, this piece of land was conquered by another small empire called Pheng-Kheng before being taken over by the Siamese during the 12th century. During the 15th century, Kuantan was ruled by the Malacca Empire.

The National Physical Plan 2005 identified Kuantan as one of the future growth centres and a hub for trade, commerce, transportation and tourism. Kuantan is considered the social, economic and commercial hub for the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, due to its strategic location. Rapid development has transformed and modernised Kuantan.

The recent introduction of Malaysia’s first Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Kuantan is designed to boost the regional economy, tourism and growth.
