Nice group of buildings, restaurants and souvenir shops, clean and welcoming. Museum we wanted to visit, but on seeing foreigners pay double price, we opted out

Not much to see here. But still, its a good place to visit to know a little bit about Kelantan traditional craft. Batik painting, silver craft and oil painting all in one place. There is a small museum located at the upper storey of the...More

They gather all the local craft here in a well organised compound. Starting with batik making, silver craft, oil painting and many more. Besides, there are some food stalls selling local cakes and local cuisine.

There is a very small museum, probably need only 15 minutes to see everything. I personally find the batik painting store more interesting. It is located at ground floor. You can learn batik painting with RM10 charge only!

The buildings do look nice but there's nothing more. Just some basic touristic souvenirs shops and 2 restaurants It misses more activity and soul...

We bought two keris daggers made on the premises and some additional ikat fabric. Seeing how some of the products are manufactured is really a great experience and well worth the visit. And of course you can buy your souvenirs right there too.
