Kota Bharu — 3 nights

The Islamic City

Known as ‘The Islamic City’, Kota Bharu offers a fine architectural mix of dignified mosques and old royal buildings.
Step out of Kota Bharu to go to Tumpat and see Wat Machimmaram Sitting Buddha, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Istana Jahar, make a trip to Wat Pikulthong Standing Buddha, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Masjid Al-Muhammadi, and enjoy the sand and surf at Pantai Cahaya Bulan.

To see where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read Kota Bharu day trip planning site.

Kuala Lumpur to Kota Bharu is an approximately 6.5-hour car ride. In December, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive 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.
