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.
Change things up with a short trip to Wat Machimmaram Sitting Buddha in Tumpat (about 32 minutes away). There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah, see the interesting displays at Istana Jahar, make a trip to Wat Photivihan Sleeping Buddha, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Masjid Ar-Rahman Mukim Pulau Gajah.

Start your trip to Kota Bharu by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

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.
