Pahang Country Town Sungai Lembing

Sungai Lembing

Located at east coast of Pahang, Sungai Lembing is around 42 km away from Kuantan. Though Sungai Lembing is in remote area, it doesn't stop me from visiting this tiny rural town.

I have heard of the captivating landscape of Sungai Lembing for years. What a pity I had not been there when I was staying in Temerloh. Owing to the Pahang rare-earth issue, I decided to go to Sungai Lembing before it turning into a dump site.

Sungai Lembing was once abounded in tin ore. The tin mine was managed by the British Company, Pahang Consolidated Company Limited (PCCL). During the production peak period, the PCCL had the world's largest and deepest underground mine. The pit was closed in 1986 when world tin prices declined.

The above photo is the main street of Sungai Lembing. There are double storey old wooden houses on both sides of the road. A century-old tree is erected in the middle of the street. The elderly town folks will be seen chatting under the shade of the big tree in the evening.

In addition to savor the great-tasting food of Sungai Lembing, at the same time we also look around some fascinating attractions in Sungai Lembing.
