During the school holidays, we were in high spirits when our parents informed us that we would be going to Cherating, a beautiful island on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. We went there by a chartered air-conditioned bus. We painted the town red at there. Cherating was situated in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It had a breathtaking, scenic and clean beach. There were many chalets and hotels which dotted the coast and they were surrounded by lush greenery. We stayed in Grand Continental Hotel which had the ideal facilities for family vacation.
Cherating was a haven for an adventurous person like me. It had many activities for the tourist such as swimming, water sports, snorkeling and jet skiing. I tried everything and was over the moon to be able to go snorkeling. I was overjoyed to have this golden opportunity to discover the underwater world. I also used an underwater camera to capture amazing shots of the fishes and corals. Initially, I was petrified about going on the jet ski but the instructor gave me pointers to ensure I felt absolutely safe.
At night, we had a barbecue under a myriad of sparkling stars at the beach. The food was scrumptious and mouthwatering. Many local and foreign tourists including me visited the world-renowned turtle sanctuary. I felt very disappointed because I didn’t see any turtles on the beach. After three wonderful days, we decided to call it a day and went home. Cherating was indeed a great place for a holiday vacation. I had fun during the children’s club party. I think my family and I will be visiting Cherating again.
