Kota Bahru, and rural Malaysia

Hi, thanks for coming.

I hope you enjoyed the photos of Perhentian.

One of the places you can get the ferry to the Perhentian Islands is from Kota Pahru on the North east coast of Malaysia. It is the capital of the state of Kelantan, one of the most traditionally Islamic states in Malaysia.

We were there at the end of Ramadan. It was just a short stay, one night, but we had a chance to go for a walk and see the night market in the late afternoon, and other parts of the town the following morning before leaving to get the ferry for the Perhentian Islands

This is the last post on our holiday to Malaysia. In two weeks I'll post some photos of Singapore.

Here Christmas decorations are up everywhere and the count down has begun!



These first pictures show our walk around the town

The next five photos were taken on the way back from the ferry as we return home from the Perhentian Islands. The first two are of a Buddhist temple.
