Kuantan - my hometown. If there's anywhere that you can find both development and decaying buildings along a street, this is it.
While Kuantan is currently undergoing development, truth to be told, the town has never quite garnered the development momentum that spurred Kuala Lumpur into the metropolitan it is now. In fact, everywhere you go, you'll see empty buildings, some badly needing restoration.
There aren't that many modern skyscraper in the town, there is no crazy traffic jam that you get during rush hours in KL, and everyone is just moving at a much slower pace. Certainly, if you're looking for a city life, you won't find it.
But if you're looking to relax, Kuantan is the perfect location.
I look forward to seeing you again Kuantan.
