#6: A visit to Kelantan is incomplete without having their local delicacies. There are plenty of delicious foods and delicacies in Kelantan itself and I really wish I could have bigger stomach to have them all.

Besides local delicacies, Kelantan is a state that rich in colourful and unique cultures; especially in terms of arts and performance.

I would like to extend my gratitude to AirAsia and also Tourism Malaysia Kelantan for this wonderful and unforgettable media fam trip. I'd been waiting for so long to visit Kota Bharu, Kelantan cause Kelantan is one and only state that I haven't visit yet and now my dreams finally came true. For those Sabahan who interested in visit Kota Bharu, Kelantan? Now you can do so cause AirAsia is flying directly from Kota Kinabalu to Kota Bharu 3 weekly flights on every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
