We came here just to look for a particular brand of fish keropok but instead we found an alternative brand (equally good) and had our lunch at the food court on level 1. We later found a variety of local kuih muihs on our way out. Great place for tourists in my opinion although dark in certain areas. There were stray cats, and litter especially on the ground floor. Would be a fantastic tourist attraction if cleanliness is maintained as the locals have so much to offer.

The museum features Kelantan's cultural heritage through photographs and a great variety of artefacts. We were further amazed by the intricate wood carvings lining the building. After our visit, we were impressed by the rich Kelantanese legacy.

IMHO, Wat Mai Suwankiri (a.k.a. the Dragon Boat Wat) is the most stunning wat in Tumpat district. You can clearly see the strong Thai influence.
The main pull factor is of course the iconic dragon boat surrounded by water which has four dragons (naga) guarding it. Don't miss the crocodiles next to it. At the entrance to the main hall, there is a big healthy fig tree laden with fruits. There is a standing Buddha statue on its roof. In the main building, there is a wax statue of Tharn Di (Monk Di) who had since passed on. Tharn Di's figure is so life-like, even up close!! I really thought I saw him blinked! This wat has the most beautiful and elaborate interior in gold and red. Murals on the walls depict Buddha's life story. Walking around its grounds ... you will come across the Goddess of Mercy (Kuan Yin), Four-faced Buddha (Brahma) and another building where as you walk up the stairs, a glass compartment the preserved body of Tharn Di in a see-through casket will come into view.
Plan your trip to see this amazing wat with visits to the other wats in Tumpat district. You won't regret it!

The former bank building houses the Kelantan's World War 1 and II memorial items. The building completed in 1912 was called 'kerapu' due to the nature of the building itself which surfaces are uneven and "mengerutu" (in Malay) because it was made by cemented little stones.
On the ground floor you get to see the items left behind by the Japanese invaders and some information about the World War related to Kelantan's government in those periods.
While on the first floor, there are items related to the people of Kelantan and their fight for freedom during the English occupation.
Perfect for those who enjoy and hard fan of historical texts. Like me ;)
The entrance fees: RM2.00.

Was awed by the Sleeping Buddha. Gazing at the face of the Buddha made me felt calm, serene and peaceful even though I was perspiring profusely after walking in the hot sun. This statue reminds me of the one in Kushinagar which I visited during my pilgrimage to India in 2010. However, there is a difference in the style of presentation.

Known too as the Beach of Passionate Love is one of the finest in Malaysia. Lovely place for the young and old, notably to lovers madly in love. Walking on the beach in the early morning or in late evening, feeling cool with the breeze blowing , listening to the waves, feeling serene and calm among tall casuarina trees, makes a refreshing, invigorating activity.

There are a restaurant call nasi ulam cikgu, they serve good Kelantanese traditional food such as ulam (some rare vegetables, herb and leaf) to eat with white rice and fish sauce. Their fried chicken and fish also taste good. There also a local artist provide art class, at the art class can try the simple batik drawing there.
