I lost my Tanah Merah river photos which I took years ago. Without the photo I couldn't build a page for you, next time perhaps. The town is small built on the river bank of Kelantan river (if not mistaken) under the Tanah Merah district. This town has a history from a monk from ancient dynasty of China more than thousand years ago whom he...more
Perhaps the only main reason why people would come around here is to get to Thailand across the river. If not wrong, I think that place is Golok. Can see from here that over there things seemed more hustling and bustling.Southern Thailand is not so safe now, so it is the tourist's risk to go there for a shopping or two.more
Tumpat is a small border town to the north of Kelantan. The main road leading to the town is beautiful as you could see paddy fields on both sides. As you approach the town, you would feel as if you've been transported back to colonial times. Take time to enjoy the feel of an old border town with narrow alleys. You could still see an old iron...more
You will be experienced totally outrages journey when you should pass through half of the city to complete your route. It was located near the Kelantan's River that was connected with Kota Bharu via Salor Bridge. Along the river band there was a park known as Taman Air Muleh or "Benteng" by a locals. It had a beautifull view when you can see sunrise and sunset together with birds flied. Pasir Mas is the second famous city after Kota Bharu. There is a rumors that it famous with beatifull and pretty ladies in Malaysia. Local habitants mostly came from unknown origin. It believed that they were mix with Arab and Siamese.

After crossing many times in this little town I finally get off my car and roam around. I was no surprise when I saw hundreds of bazaar like stalls selling almost the same items. When during raining seasons everywhere is wet with water. This is a market where people come to purchase Thai products to retails in there respective shop in their village. Most of the products will never get to the shelf of the big supermarkets. The foods are 99.9% Malays and Thais. There is only 1 shop selling Chinese foods and business is only for lunch. Whenever I by passed this small town I will just get down to buy Rice, that's my only purchase because is cheaper than Kota Baru, and Tib Bits are also cheap unfortunately I do not eat Tib Bits.%h*
Fishing & angling is a must for a visitor who choose to stay / overnite directly in front of the canal / river. The water quality is great and good type of fishes can be hooked up. For the baits, we may just use fish fillet, prawn or even squid. I did catch a good quality fish just by fishing at the veranda of my chalet, local called in 'Selangat' or in Melaka we called it 'Senangin'. It is small but yet a delicious fish to eat as I requested the chalets restaurant to cook it in steam Thai style.
Equipment: Light fishing equipments.
the bachok district in kelantan is situated along the coastline. the most famous beach is pantai irama, which is just next to the main town of bachok. A victim of coastal erosion, the beach itself is just a beach, sand & surf. What attract the locals here are mainly the opportunity to relax among the coconut trees, and have a mid afternoon treats of keropok (fish crackers) and ice shavings.
