Even with the lack of sleep, the very early morning flight to Kota Bharu was indeed worthwhile. The abundance of subjects made us regret that it was only a day-return trip. So many things to shoot, so many places to go, yet so little time. A state so rich in culture and colours, in its heyday, Kelantan was known as the 'Annexe to Mecca' for its role in developing Islam in the region.
As soon as we arrive Kota Bharu, we went to Siti Khadijah Market. A visit to Kelantan will not be complete without a visit to this bustling bazaar. From the market's 3rd floor, it was truly an irresistible treat for shutterbugs with it's colourful assembly of goods and lively atmosphere. We also dropped by another market at Pasir Mas' town.
