    This is a very interesting market to visit. Most of the stalls are managed by women. You can buy many local stuffs here from daily necessities, clothes, food, fruits etc. Interestingly, some of the things here are quite cheap. We even saw turtle eggs for sale. There's also local tobacco available, some facial pellets for smooth skin, keropok etc.
    It's a one of the must-see places when in Kota Bharu

    Short stretch of beach. However a number of local food stalls available. Sells variety of fried prawn, fish, squid and fishballs. Overall, good visit with family with good foods. Lucky for us, during our visit, not many people visit yet, but if its 5pm, am sure it will be hectic and traffic jam.

    You could picture how royalty lived ages ago. The entrance fee is MYR1, for senior citizens? Also, picture taking is allowed

    I was here last in Feb 2019 and did not bother with this, thinking that the Royal family here had no interest for me. However, I had some free time and decided to visit and I was pleasantly surprised as it gives you an insight into more recent history of the Royal family as well as Malaysia since WW2 (mainly). It is good to see "real" artifacts like the beds that were slept in, clothes they wore and the dining table that was sat at. I found the pictures very interesting too, especially of one of the Sultans smoking.(which would never be seen today!)

    Kota Bharu being a sleepy town in the east coast has few malls. One of it is AEON mall. Located a little bit outside city centre, this is a fairly new, modern mall with good facilities. It has plenty of mid range international brands for fashion and homewares.
    Main shop anchor shop would be AEON deparmental store itself taking 3 floors. Ground floor is where the groceries shop is.
    The restaurants here are plenty ranging from foodcourt (3rd Floor) to dine in restaurants (Ground Floor).
    Parking is easy and free although you need to take a parking ticket. English is spoken here.

    If you like history and museum, this would be a good stop over to understand the Japanese invasion of Malaya through Kelantan. An interesting fact is Kelantan was once ruled by Thailand as a gift from the Japanese to the Thai Monarchy for allowing them to go through without any resistance
    There's also a replica of Fat Man and Little Boy bombs that destroyed Japan.

    A bit rundown. Nothing much to see for MYR2. Except for eatery next to it, Nasi Ulam Cikgu. The shop and art workshops were not working properly

    Some parts of the mosque is under maintenance. Several people were sleeping on the corridor after praying? There are a special building adjacent to it for ladies

    Loved walking in the golden sands, fringed by coconut palms. A really cool walk in the early morning or late evening as there is the breeze blowing. We also saw fishing boats returning. So relaxing to just sit around on the beach and observed the gentle waves lapping on the shore.

    Amazing street art murals. The best we have seen in our travels all over Malaysia. Near Pasar Siti Khadijah. Beautiful imagery of Malaysia customs, food and everyday life spread over several laneways. Just walk down some backstreets in the area.

    The exhibits seem to be gathering and there is no attempt to rejuvenate them from time to time. There are a few interesting exhibits though and it's worth a few photos.

    This mosque is well outside the city. The road to this place is small (one way road) not meant for busy days. To have seen this building after going through villages makes it significant.

    The mosque is made of wood and the design carved from it is detailed. Because it is surrounded by water, the place requires no airconditioning. This is a fairly new building. Around the building there are some seating areas so you can appreciate nature. However, if during religous holidays I don't reckon it will pleasant as places are limited. This is Wheelchair friendly place.
    This being a mosque, proper attires are required (headscarf, long pants...etc). Fridays will be busy.

    There is a restaurant next to the moaque selling local food. Great place to have breakfast/lunch. The 'roti canai telur' is a good bet. English is limited.

    It is one of the two places you can see here in the area. The other one being the fishermen's market. Here you can see colourful fishing boats nearby or experience the fish market in the afternoon.

    A huge night market with plenty to shop - souvenir, garments, merchandise, snacks and eateries. The local authorities should pay more attention in developing this place.
