Kelantanese
culture
is
wonderfully unique, from
its delicious cuisine to the
distinctive Kelantanese Malay
dialect spoken throughout the state. It is also home to
some of the most ancient archaeological discoveries
in Malaysia, including several prehistoric aboriginal
settlements. Acknowledged as the Cradle of Malay
Culture, Kelantan is a veritable showcase of traditional
Malay customs and art forms, which includes wau
(giant kite-flying) and wayang kulit (shadow puppetry).
Kelantanese handicrafts such as batik, kain songket
(woven brocade) and silverware are especially fine and
sought after.

These three caves can be accessed via long-tailed boats along the
Galas River. Gua Ikan or Fish Cave is named after a solitary fishshaped rock. It is a fascinating experience for naturalists, with a
huge chamber of beautifully sculpted stalactites and stalagmites as
well as resident bats. The other two caves have smaller passageways
and more intricate routes, presenting greater challenges.

in Kelantan to sample a taste of the rich cultural heritage of the
state, rarely seen anywhere else in Malaysia. A range of traditional
activities are showcased, including bird-singing competitions, wau
(giant kite-flying), top spinning, playing of rebana ubi (giant drums)
and wayang kulit (shadow puppetry).

Shopping
Getting Around
A bewildering range of handicrafts in various colours, shapes and
sizes fill the shelves at Kelantan’s souvenir shops. Take your pick from
the intricate handicrafts, silverware, fashionable batik sarongs, pareos
and trendy bags to the richly-embroidered songket fabric and many
more. In many places, visitors can also watch how the crafts are made.
Some items such as wau (giant kites) can be custom-made to suit
your liking. Duty-free shopping zones are available at Rantau Panjang,
Pengkalan Kubor and Bukit Bunga.
Buses and taxis ply the roads between Kota Bharu and the
outlying districts. In Kota Bharu itself, trishaws are a more
affordable and quaint mode of transportation. The local bus
station is situated near the Handicraft Village which connects
to various places within Kota Bharu, while the buses from the
Kota Bharu City Bus Terminal and Lembah Sireh Bus Terminal
connect Kota Bharu to the rest of Kelantan. The local train is
another interesting way to get around in Kelantan. This train
operates within the state and connects Tumpat in the north to
Gua Musang in the south.

This is the largest market in the state, about 4km from Kota Bharu,
and quite close to the Thai border. Functioning as a wet and
wholesale market during the day, it comes alive at night, with an
assortment of local products ranging from fabrics and clothes to
food and local fruits. Whether just wandering around and taking
in the local colour or haggling with local traders, a visit here is as
entertaining as it is eye-opening.
