While Cherating is best known for its beaches, the ocean isn’t the only body of water worth exploring. The Cherating River (Sungai Cherating) meanders through mangrove forests of the region, and cruising the river has become one of the area’s most popular activities.
By day, Cherating River cruisers might spot monkeys, monitor lizards, snakes, otters, terrapins and a variety of tropical birds. By night the river looks completely different. On a nighttime river cruise, thousands of fireflies glow in the mangrove trees — a magical experience. It’s also possible to experience the river by kayak or canoe, or by learning to crab fish in its clear waters.
