Kota Bharu

— 2 nights

The Islamic City

Known as ‘The Islamic City’, Kota Bharu offers a fine architectural mix of dignified mosques and old royal buildings.
Go for a jaunt from Kota Bharu to Tumpat to see Wat Machimmaram Sitting Buddha about 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah, don't miss a visit to Wat Photivihan Sleeping Buddha, and examine the collection at Istana Jahar.

For other places to visit, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Kota Bharu road trip tool.

Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bharu is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive. In November in Kota Bharu, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.

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.
