White-sand beaches and lush jungle in Pahang

From the sweeping green vistas of the Cameron Highlands, to the lush jungles of the Genting Highlands, travelers will be awestruck by Malaysia's beauty. And Pahang vacation rentals put you right in country's beating heart: trek along mountainous tea plantations so elevated you'll be walking through the clouds themselves, and finish sipping on a delicate lotus flower infusion in an ancient Buddhist temple. If you'd rather just relax, head to Kuantan to laze on the city's long stretches of sand or join the many backpackers who flock to Cherating for its white-sand beach and shady palm trees.

Trek through Pahang's ancient jungles

The Cameron Highlands of Malaysia are infamous for their beguiling walks, teeming with the world's rarest wildlife and offering soaring views of the sun-laced trees, 5000 feet above sea level. Travelers can find Pahang vacation rentals close to where many trails begin, leading to spectacular waterfalls where threatened bird species have made their home. Stop off on your way to take all the family on a tour of a verdant tea plantation, revel in the serenity of a forest clearing cut off from the hustle of everyday life and hike through boardwalks laden with trailing ferns, golden orchids and low-hanging clouds.

Experience the natural beauty of Pahang

Attractions for every traveler can be found near Pahang vacation rentals. Experience Malaysia's oldest national park, Taman Negara, where you can explore the rainforest and see largely undisturbed indigenous tribes. The sparkling expanse of Chiki Lake is another must-visit place and legend has it that a dragon resides in the string of lakes that make up the area. To really get away from it all, consider visiting Tioman Island, which was once rated as the most beautiful island in the world.

City sun or mountain cool in Pahang

Pahang boasts a beautifully warm climate all year round, and the good news is it doesn't vary much. Its hottest month is March, when you can soak up all that tropical Malaysian summer heat, and the temperature averages 80 degrees. However, if you choose a vacation rental high in Pahang's mist-filled mountains, the mercury can definitely drop. Daytime highs usually top off near the low 70s, making it perfect for those forest treks, but pack a sweater for the evenings.

Meet the world's rarest wildlife in Pahang

Pahang stretches over the epic basin of the Pahang River, enclosed by the Titiwangsa Mountains of the west, and the eastern highlands in the north. There are 3 ecosystems that mingle together in the area: the fresh water rivers, the dense jungles, and the coastline, which of course makes it a paradise for breathtaking wildlife. With the Malaysian mountains being so high above sea level, take advantage of your time to observe plant and bird species you won't find anywhere else on the globe, all laced with the aromatic scent of tea. If you're lucky you might even see "the world's largest flower", the Rafflesia, in full bloom.
