Kota Bharu Craft Village

The best place to shop for souvenir while in Kota Bharu will be the Craft Village. It is located in Jalan Hilir Kota in the cultural zone of Kota Bharu.

The village was opened in July 1991 to spur the development of the traditional handicraft industry in the state.

One can buy a wide range of handicrafts which make excellent presents or souvenirs. The handicrafts produced here illustrate not only the exquisite craftsmanship of the people of Kelantan, but also their cultural history, which has been passed down the generations.

The building in the complex are constructed in traditional Kelantan Malay style and are named after popular flowers and plants. The main building, Balai (or hall) Getam Guri, is a handicraft museum. Entrance fee to the museum is RM 1 for adult.
