Visit Kota Bahru – Malaysia

Kota Bahru, is the capital of State Kelantan in Malaysia. This state has been ran by opposition party PAS for many many years. And naturally, there has not been much funding from the federal government to develop this state. I was quite surprised to be told that Kota Bahru is actually the most populated city in the east coast, about half a million. And seems to me that there is definitely a lot of opportunities for growth here.

In terms of tourism, the most popular beach in Kota Bahru – Pantai Cahaya Bulan as seen in the pictures below, can be developed further. This could be a potential business for water sports activities, or a beautiful relaxing place for people to unwind in the city of Kota Bahru with half a million population.

The shops along the beach are currently restaurants, which are good for a hang out and eating place. Further development can make this a great night spot for kelantan.

I also had the chance to visit Rantau Panjang, a small town across Sungai Golok at the Thailand-Malaysia Border. This town is mainly a place where many locals would come to shop for cheap items, eg: clothing, local tidbits, home decoration, etc. It is like a Petaling Street in Kota Bahru. A place where tourist can buy some stuff back home for their family, friends & colleagues.
