Kota Bharu

Date Links: Sat 04/06

Accommodation: Grand Riverview Hotel

In the northeastern corner of the peninsula, Kota Bharu, which calls itself ‘The Islamic City’, is the termination of the east-coast road and a gateway to Thailand. At first glance, Kota Bharu, with its bustling modern centre and traffic-clogged streets, seems much like any other Malaysian city, but this is a city rich in Malay culture, with royal palaces, colourful markets and several museums to linger over; it’s also a good base for exploring the surrounding region. Many travellers plan an overnight stop here en route to or from Thailand or Pulau Perhentian.
