The Islamic City

Known as ‘The Islamic City’, Kota Bharu offers a fine architectural mix of dignified mosques and old royal buildings.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sultan Ismail Petra Silver Jubilee Mosque and Masjid Al-Muhammadi. The adventure continues: buy something for everyone on your list at AEON MALL Kota Bharu, examine the collection at Min House Camp, browse the eclectic array of goods at Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah, and make a trip to Wat Photivihan Sleeping Buddha.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Kota Bharu trip planner.

The Blissful Abode
With its own distinct culture, charmingly traditional rural landscape, and a wealth of ancient history, a cultural trip to Kelantan offers plenty of attractions for tourists. The Tittiwangsa Mountains kept the state virtually isolated from its surrounds for centuries, with visitors having to hike for weeks to make it there. As such, it developed its own arts, cuisine, and a dialect that is unintelligible even to many Malay speakers. To bypass the mountains, travelers to and from the state took to the seas, which bred a maritime culture that often came under attack from piracy. High peaks, coastal regions, and fertile rice fields make for a diverse geography that's a delight to explore.
