Kota Bharu Travel Tips
(12 February, 2006)
Kota Bharu Travel Tips
provides useful information on Kota Bharu for the benefit of those planning their tip there. Kota Bharu is the capital of Kelantan Darul Naim
. It is located on the northeastern part of Peninsular Malaysia. With an estimated 2010 population of about 610,000, it is one of the largest towns in the East Coast.
Being by the banks of the Kelantan river, Kota Bharu is flood prone. Within Kota Bharu town are many heritage sights such as palaces and mosque. Due to Kelantan's proximity to Thailand, there are many big Thai temples close to Kota Bharu, especially in the town of Tumpat
. There are about 30 Buhhist temples in Kelantan, which is something of a surprise for a state with an overwhelmingly Malay population.

How to go to Kota Bharu
You can take a flight, a train or a bus to reach Kota Bharu. The Sultan Ismail Petra Airport (KBR) in Pengkalan Chepa
is the main airport for Kelantan. It is served by Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia and Firefly.
For a bit of sightseeing, you might consider taking the Jungle Train that runs between Gemas in Negri Sembilan to Tumpat in Kelantan. It offers you a good view of the tropical rainforest.
Finally, Kota Bharu is connected with all major cities in Peninsular Malaysia by bus.
Kota Bharu is a flood-prone city, particularly during the monsoon season. Here are some photos that I shot of the flood in Kota Bharu, when I happened to visit it during flood season.
