Experience Rustic Kelantan with AirAsia & Tourism Malaysia

A holiday overseas with the family can be quite expensive (even if it was just 3days 2nights)

So why not try Kelantan? :) 
An ideal place for a mini getaway in Malaysia!
Great for those with a love of experiencing traditional cultures and history buffs!
Affordable, FUN and oh-so-convenient now that AirAsia flies to Kelantan
 from Kota Kinabalu 3 times a week!

Here i list down the places i went to eat and where i stayed in Kota Bharu, Kelantan!


Perdana Hotel 

Telephone Number : +609 7458888

What i really liked about this premier hotel is its prominent unique carvings
 in which rich Malay heritage is kept alive.
Blending modern luxury and classic deco, Hotel Perdana is suitable for everyone.
My room was spacious and comfy.
I'm particularly fussy about hotel toilets and i was not disappointed at all!
Needless to say, my stay at Perdana Hotel was enjoyable and very comfortable.


Renaissance Hotel
Tel : 09 7462233

Boasting 38 luxury suites and 260 rooms, experience the rich Malay culture 
at Renaissance Kota Bharu Hotel, the city's only five star international class hotel
 with premier convention and wedding venue.
With its classy deco, i immediately felt at peace upon entering my room.
Fluffy beds beckoned us to rest after a hot day out in Kota Bharu city exploring!
The bathroom lined with marble and spacious bathtub...
Ahhh! Time for a soak! *bliss* and comfy sleep time!

Grand Riverview Hotel
Tel : 09 7439988

While i did not stay there, i had the wonderful opportunity to have hi-tea
 beside the pool and facing the river for a view of the sunset!

Their talented chefs prepared a buffet of local delicacies while hotel staff and manager were
more than happy to explain/introduce each and every local dish served!

The sunset was spectacular, definitely a first for me to see a riverside sunset!
I usually enjoy my sunsets beside the sea! :)


New Horizon Restaurant
A hotspot for locals to dine with the family, enjoy thai-chinese fusion dishes here.
My favourite dish was the TomYam Soup! OMG, i'm salivating while thinking about it!

Address : Jalan Pasir Mas Salor, 15100, Kota Bharu, Kelantan, 15100, Malaysia
Phone: 0 9-744 7177


Warung Pok Mat
NEVER judge a dish by its look alone.
This bowl of heavenly goodness has taken Pak Mat many years to perfect, and i'm so glad to have the chance to eat it! Beef broth that has been stewed for hours with local spices, and succulent fresh river fish chunks added in later upon serving. Cool down with a cup of milky tea topped with local honey!
 :) i drank two cups! Its really THAT good!

Address : Medan Ikan Bakar Kuala Besar, Kota Bharu, Kelantan
Tip : Closed on Tuesdays. Be there early before the fish soup is sold out!

Yati Ayam Percik Restaurant
A must eat dish in Kelantan - Nasi Kerabu and Ayam Percik!
Fragrant rice is topped with fresh veg, eaten with charcoal grilled kampong chicken
 complimented with creamy coconut based gravy.
They also have lots of traditional kuihmuih available and prepacked!
I wanted to buy all of it! So colorful! I had a few and YUM! Perfect for desserts!

Address : Jalan Long Yunus, Kota Bharu, Kelantan
Phone : 017-935 1591

Kopitiam Kita
Take a chance to meet your favorite local celebrity here!
Don't miss out on their famous Roti TiTab - freshly made bread toasted with butter, topped with a half-boiled egg and dollops of kaya!  Try several other famous Kelantan cuisines here like, Nasi Air Dingin, Nasi Berlauk, Nasi Dagang,  & Nasi Tumpang !

Address : No. 4357-A, Jalan Pengkalan Chepa, Taman Desa Jaya,
                 15000, Kota Bharu, Kelantan
Phone : 019-981 0888

Nasi Ulam Cikgu Restaurant
The most memorable restaurant I visited!
This is where i tried the dish 'Budu' which is a sauce traditionally made with anchovies, salt
and 'tempoyak' (fermented durian) eaten with steamed rice and alot of raw veggies.
 Budu is definitely a unique dish, something that requires a very strong stomach acquired taste,perhaps?
All in all, definitely an experience for all food lovers! 

Address : Kampung Kraftangan,Jalan Hilir Kota, 15100 Kota Baharu, Malaysia
Tel : 0199616665/0199886665

Captain-T Restaurant
Fresh seafood +steamboat+ship!
Lots of fun cooking with friends!
The sweetness of the seafood is mixed in their already yummy chicken broth,
all the cooking is done in an air conditioned room!

Address : PT 247, Jalan Jambatan Sultan Yahya Petra, Seksyen 17,
             15050, Kota Bharu, Kelantan.
Phone:  016 203 5763 & 016 412 5763
