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.
Get some cultural insight at Istana Jahar and Handicraft Village and Craft Museum, Kelantan. Change things up with a short trip to Wat Machimmaram Sitting Buddha in Tumpat (about 32 minutes away). There's much more to do: stroll through Pantai Cahaya Bulan, don't miss a visit to Wat Pikulthong Standing Buddha, examine the collection at Bank Kerapu, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah.

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.
