For most visitors, the charms of Kelantan are found in the vitality of its culture and its remote, unsullied beauty. The traditional sports of giant kite-flying, top-spinning, silat, wayang kulit, bird-singing competitions and the making of exquisite handicrafts such as songket, batik, silverware and mengkuang products still remain fixtures here, offering a glimpse of traditional Malay culture in truly spectacular setting.

Kelantan's coastline is almost completely undeveloped, and offers a number of idyllic beaches. Vast stretches of tropical forest cover the state, and its southeastern corner forms part of the Taman Negara National Park.

 

Malaysia Map. KelantanLOCATION

Rustic settings of picturesque vampings (villages) amidst padi-fields give insights into a way of life that has endured the passing of time. Kelantan's history dates to between 8000-3000 B.C. Chinese historical documents chronicle the existence of a government which had links with China, when Kelantan was referred to as 'Ho-lo-tan'.

Kota Bahru

Forrmerly KOTA BAHRU, city, West Malaysia (Malaya), on the east levee of the Kelantan River, near the Thai border and 8 miles (13 km) inland from the South China Sea. Located in a fertile agricultural area, Kota Baharu ("new fort") is an industrial nucleus. It is inaccessible from the sea because of sandbars and relies on port facilities at nearby Tumpat. Kota Baharu is served bythe airport at Peng Chepa and bya dense road network. Pasir Mas to the southwest is the terminal for both the east coast railway and the branch line north to Thailand. Kota Baharu was one of the first places seized (Dec. 10, 1941) bythe Japanese in the Singapore campaign in World War II. Extensive industrial development undertaken around the city in the late 1970s included a major industrial estate at Pengkalan Chepa. Kota Baharu Teachers' College was established there (1954). Pop.
