Pekan, sebuah bandar tua yang mempunyai banyak kesan sejarahnya. Bandar ini juga dikenali sebagai Bandar Diraja pernah menjadi ibu negeri dan pusat pentadbiran negeri Pahang Darul Makmur.
Dalam tahun 1948, bangunan ini telah diduduki oleh DYMM Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar sebagai menggantikan Istana Sri Terentang. Bangunan ini kemudiannya dikenali sebagai Istana Kota Beram yang menjadi tempat persemayaman baginda dan menjalankan upacara-upacara yang lain. Pada tahun 1954, lantaran kedudukan ruang-ruang di dalam istana yang agak terhad, kerajaan negeri telah membina bangunan tambahan untuk dijadikan balai yang dikenali dengan Balairung Seri.
WELL, LET’S DRIVE ABOUT 38 KM FROM MAHKOTA AMAN HOMESTAY TO THE TOWN OF SUNGAI LEMBING AND LEARN ABOUT ITS PAST GLORY...
The Pahang Sungai Lembing Museum was set up to remember the glory days of Sungai Lembing town as the richest producer of tin when the country, Malaysia, was the largest producer in the world.
However, tin is no more an important ore in the world, having been replaced by plastics, alluminium and other cheaper synthetic resources for what were previously its end products, like tins and containers for foods and drinks.
With the establishment of the Museum, it is hoped that the present and future generations can comprehend and see the importance it had played in the economic and social development of Pahang state as well as the country.

Kuantan, the capital city and main administrative center of the state of Pahang Darul Makmur, lies on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, about 170 miles east of Kuala Lumpur - the capital city of Malaysia - and 215 miles north of Singapore. It is situated on the banks of the Kuantan river mouth, facing the South China Sea. This town is the gateway to the delightful East Coast states of West Malaysia. You can travel north along the coastal road to the states of Trengganu and Kelantan. And further up north towards the borders of Thailand. Although Kuantan has grown into a bustling modern town in line with the rapid development of Malaysia, it still retains its delightful cultures, traditions and values, making it a modern yet traditional town. Populated mainly by the Malays, Chinese and Indians, you will also find in the outskirts, communities of indigenous people ( known as "Orang Asli" in Malaysia), some living the modern way while others maintaining their traditional lifestyle.
THINGS TO DO
Well, don't just stay in your room while you're in town...take a peek outside and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Partake in the activities. And you'll find that there are plenty of joyful things and activities you can do in Kuantan. The popular beaches of Teluk Chempedak, Batu Hitam and the tranquil Sepat Beach are just nearby. You can enjoy and experience the vibrant night markets or watch the unique sight of buffaloes hauling carts laden with catches of the sea at Beserah. Or go to Jalan Masjid in the middle of Kuantan and visit the Pahang Heroes Museum (Muzium Tokoh Pahang) depicting the notables of Pahang's political and social history. Make a visit to the Pahang Art Gallery (Balai Seni Lukis Pahang) at Jalan Tanah Putih near the MPK Office Building. Or just watch some lively traditional dances at the Taman Budaya Negeri Pahang at Jalan Teluk Sisek. And if you wish to take a fast jog to burn your fats away or just have a leisurely stroll to exercise your eyes, this capital of Pahang has several recreational parks and a popular waterfalls spot with friendly facilities.
