The Islamic City
Known as ‘The Islamic City’, Kota Bharu offers a fine architectural mix of dignified mosques and old royal buildings. Most visitors use the town as a stopover on the way to the Perhentian Islands, but friendly locals, tasty cuisine, and easy access to authentic villages make a sound case for a longer stay. However long you stay, you should have no problem filling your Kota Bharu itinerary with interesting museums in town and temples, waterfalls, and caves in the surrounding area.
