KOTA BHARU (Kota Baharu & كوت بهارو) | Kelantan | Royal & State Capital City

Mmmm...wondering why there's very little postings on the East Coast cities of KB, KT and Kuantan.

Born in KB, me think it has grown to be the largest urban centre in East Coast, and could comfortably rival Alor Setar, Seremban and the likes.
KB has the tallest Hotel-cum condo in EC.
Most chic shopping mall in EC
Biggest specialist hospital in EC

Many new high-rise projects of 20 or more storeys are sprucing up within the city skyline:
- Kelantan Trade Centre
- KB Trade Centre
- The new MPKBBI tower
- Intan Plaza
- Pelangi Mall
- Various Condos in the suburb of Kubang Kerian etc

KB deserves more highlights...

Being stay in many part of malaysian cities, i can confidently claim that Kota Bahru n Kuantan are much more livelier than alor star or miri and in fact can even match the city of ipoh. More hv to mention on developments in ktn n kb bcoz for most people in west coast, they quickly c east coast towns as dead n dilapidated areas, even though they have never visited these towns b4... dont believe me? ask them, n 5 out 10 still think that shit.

Like in kb, ktn night life is much more livelier than in ipoh n seremban minus the entertainment centres. For example, take a beautiful night walk along the crowded teluk chempedak beach, or join in the scores of people in night fishing along the scenic kuantan riverside. it is also not surprising to see crowded locals patronise into many chic kopitiams (in fact, alots!) centred around, for a cup of coffee n tastely roti bakar. I must say all these night activities don't coz u so much $$$ to fork out in a single trip. isn't that called ideal place to live n work?

The most important issue is : Who wants to invest in a state ruled by a fundamentalist Islamic party?

Actually, this should be Pasir Mas.

The gorgeous finely-featured, fair skinned dames predominant in that locality represent an exotic blend of Kelantanese, Siamese, Cham, Afghan and Arab ancestry.

Being a Kelantanese myself, I of course got one.
