Malay cultural hub
To experience rich Malay cultural heritage, take a flight to Kota Bharu. Old trishaws mingle with modern vehicles amidst the hustle-and-bustle of the old central market that is still being dominated by enterprising women. It is a journey back in time in Kota Bharu, with museums galore and unique architectural styles. A flight into this wonderful gem of a town in the state of Kelantan is definitely a worthwhile cultural and culinary adventure.
Kota Bharu is also a shopping haven for silverware, batik and unique handicrafts. The town serves as a jump-off point to the fabulous beaches and underwater treasures of the Perhentian islands.
