Cuti-cuti Malaysia ~ Kelantan (2)

My luck has come .... we accidentally bump into one of the famous spot in Kota Bahru. Its called the Wat Phothikyan Phut Thak Tham which located at Bachok. This is what I saw when we passed by this area.

Its a Siam Temple.

Stunning view of our mighty Buddha, Amitabha.

I am honour standing next to his feet.

Siam Walking Buddha. More info here.

Sorry, not knowing what to call this statue !

Avalokiteśvara. More info here.

Siam Four Faced Brahma. More info here.

What interest me was this Siam 7 days Buddha. More info here.

Wat Phothikyan Phut Thak Tham temple is about half an hour drive from Kota Bahru to Bachok. There are many beach resort along the way as well.

Now, here is the situation at Jalan Kebun Sultan during evening time. Very very very busy ! All Chinese food is located along here and its also the only China town in Kota Bahru. Did you notice the Jawi words ?  One thing you have to take note is 90% of shops will be closed after 5.00pm, supermarket is about 10.00pm then 90% of the restaurants & food court will be closed at 10.00pm as well. There's still some 24 hours food stalls available everywhere in the city but mostly are closed and its actually very very quiet after 10.00pm. So, make sure you go to have your dinner early ya when you're in Kota Bahru!

This is the view between Jalan Buluh Kubu & Jalan Parit Dalam. And Siti Khatijah Market is on the left (just in front of the red car).

There are quite a number of vegetarian restaurants available in Kota Bahru too. I've already noticed a few of them around the city.

Oh boy, this ad is actually taking me back to the 70's. haha..... There's also one newly open Chinese food court at Jalan Sultanah Zainab called Medan Selera Kubang Pasu. There is one delicious 'yong tou fu' stall there that you must try.

Infront of me is the famous Arkinson Clock Tower in Kota Bahru.
And this Restaurant Capital is situated just in front of the clock tower, at Lorong Dewan Kota Bahru. They serve really delicious chinese Kuih and also nasi dagang. Their customers are queuing up almost every morning just to enjoy the nasi dagang.

I really like it especially the rice. Its not overly cooked and its really aromatic with all the gravy. Hubby & I share one packet. I took mostly the rice, egg & pickled vegetables. Am totally speechless ! I am returning to this restaurant for the second time just for this nasi daging before living Kota Bahru. So, what can I say ! Bye-bye Kelantan.

This mosque is located nearby Bandar Permaisuri, Terengganu

This is the east cost highway but only available till Paka, Terengganu. Its not totally ready yet. Once its ready, then you can travel straight to Kuantan - Karak Highway till Kuala Lumpur from this east cost highway. By the way, thanks for visiting and hopefully my Kelantan trip will bring you a little joy. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
