Heard of Bukit Gambang Resort City (BGRC) ?
We had the opportunity to spend 2 days and 1 night there during the last weekend of January. Alhamdulillah =)
It is located in Gambang, Kuantan Pahang about 218km from KL and about 35km from Kuantan. With the easy access of East Coast Expressway, the journey took us about 2.5 hours drive.
BGRC is the first and the largest water theme park in the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. So, if you happen to be here during weekends or public holidays, please do not be surprise of the crowd as most of the locals in East Coast will come and spend their weekend here!

The main attraction here is of course, the water park! With large area of about 60 acres, they offer lots of wide attractions such as Children Fantasy Island (“Penguin Island”), Special Kidz Zone, The Adventure Typhoon River as well as a 1 kilometer long man-made sandy beach. All you don't want to miss!
Interesting part is, it is a cashless park! This means that you do not have to worry about bringing all your cash each time you want to enter different areas or to pay your entrance or rental fees. It is the first of its kind of e-value system where all transactions are automatically deducted from a prepaid wristband. Sounds great isn't it? It is really convenient for you and your family!
|Cabbana for rent!|
One thing that you need to know is that, they offer some sort of spacious cabbana to put our belongings such as dry and clean clothes etc. The downside is that the price is quite expensive! If you need one, you have to rent it at RM42 or RM52 (inclusive of RM10 deposit refundable) and also come complimentary 1 pizza and mineral waters depends on which one do you take.
If you would like to come and try it yourself, it is open daily except on Tuesdays (except for school holidays & public holidays) from 10 to 6pm. The entrance ticket is RM21.90 for adult and RM14.90 for children below 12 years old. For children below the height of 90 cm is FOC!
