    One of the tourist site at the heart of Kota Bharu, we take chance to visit the museum since it quite closed to Masjid Muhammadi and Pasar Siti Khadijah, where the later are more flocked by tourists. It was actual royal palace and converted to the museum, and is good to get knowledge about Kelantanese royal culture, exhibiting on the clothing, weddings, and other royalty ceremonies. The entrance fee also is cheap for RM2 per person.

    Recommended to visit this local market. Walked from the outdoor areas selling fruits to the center area selling veg on the 1st floor, dry goods on the 2nd floor and 3rd floor textiles and clothings. There is also an area for cooked food. The poultry and seafood stalls were close today, and so were most of the stalls. Not sure if it’s because of Hari Raya Haji on Monday.

    Ventilation within the market was generally good and most stalls have fans on however as the day time temperature reached 33 degrees celsius hence can be quite hot while walking in the market.

    Managed to buy some fruits to bring back to the hotel to eat.

    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.

    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

    Came here to check on the family tree and nice seeing the exhibits as the glasswares and more there. Should check this one out, too if you're around for Istana Jahar cause it's just behind it.

    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

    Laksa is my most favourite food in my life. When I saw that My Laksa was going to open this year at the KB mall, I was excited and couldn't wait to enjoy it. So, before start a new semester, i decided to try this laksa with my best friend. Before this, I am really love D'laksa which is also one of famous penang asam laksa that sold in mall. I'll buy it every time I go to Queensbay Mall. Now, I dont have to worry when I come back home back home for semester break because I could come here to fulfill my craving, I rate 4.5 out of 5, its worth to try, believe me :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Amazing street art, worth a visit.

    It is in city centre, not far from the food market.

    Lots of pieces of art, Malay people, animals, military scenes.

    Large and colourful. Not as great as in Kuantan, but you will see yourself :)

    We saw art on several streets around one area.

    Unfortunately it was raining when we were there, but we managed to take several photos holding umbrella.

    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.
