We did not go on any excursions during out stay at Club Med Cherating July 08 however we did came across a very good English speaking taxi driver : Mr. Man who we used for a shopping trip into Kuantan ( 45min drive ; RM 140 round trip; 2 OK shopping centres- East Coast and Mega Mall – worth a trip if you do not have time to shop in KL but if you are stopping in KL then give it a miss…).We also used him to take us to the jetty in Kuala Terengganu where we went on to Redang Island after Club Med . He was prompt and reliable picking us up from Club Med and then from the jetty on our return. He charged us RM 750 for the 5 hour round trip. He was about 30% cheaper thena using the official Club Med taxi. Mr Man: 013 922 3790; 012 9563550.Highly recommended.
