Last weekend, I was being invited with few Sabahan bloggers together fellow medias for an exclusive 4D3N Media Fam Trip to Kota Bharu, Kelantan in conjunction with the inaugural flight of this significant new route which AirAsia is the first carrier to connect between both East Malaysia and East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia directly.
#1: Press conference ceremony and performance were held once we arrived Kota Bharu
#2: My first ever media tag as a travel blogger
#3: Stayed in two different hotels throughout our media fam trip; Hotel Perdana and Renaissance Hotel
#4: We visited many historical and interesting tourist spots around Kota Bharu, Tumpat and Rantau Panjang area.
#5: Famous shopping spots; Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah or known as Central Market, Pasar Besar Rantau Panjang and Wakaf Che Yeh night market.
#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.
