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.

There are a restaurant call nasi ulam cikgu, they serve good Kelantanese traditional food such as ulam (some rare vegetables, herb and leaf) to eat with white rice and fish sauce. Their fried chicken and fish also taste good. There also a local artist provide art class, at the art class can try the simple batik drawing there.

There are two small shops with items for tourists and a restaurant (haven't eaten there) and that's it. It's a bit like the rest of the city - you can do it but you... More

This place didn't have a particularly varied display of local crafts. A couple of silver places that were a bit run down, an art shop with not much in the way of local paintings. Not worth the visit from our perspective.

A few stalls selling low quality tourist tat and a small museum which charges you double if you are a 'foreigner'. Spent about 5 minutes here and then left.

The building itself is quite impressive and well maintained. 👍👍 i came here to try out the famous nasi nearby. The building itself is quite impressive and well maintained. You can find different kinds of interesting souveniers. It can get very hot during lunch hour.

There are are several 'points of interest' in the city centre within walking distance of each other. The building and the garden courtyard are worth a brief visit but there is not much else to see.

Although KB is a big city, it is difficult to find handicraft things or something genuinly Malaysian. This market is small but offers a number of shops selling things from fridge magnets to paintings and other home decor stuff. You can also find restaurants alongside where you can eat typical dishes as well as for example home made coconut ice... More

We turned up and wandered around and there was nothing to see. Checked previous photos just to make sure it was the right place. Not recommended.
