2. Ride a Quad Bike

Being a coastal town, Cherating has a diverse and exciting landscape from its local fishing village to its thriving mangrove forest.

Ride in a group along the sandy beaches, through forest trails, and the local fishing village, all while having a magnificent view of the South China Sea by your side.
