Info : Markets and Handicrafts Tour
Siti Khadijah, Khota Bharu’s famous Central Market in Kelantan, is the first stop on this half-day guided tour. The market itself is mainly operated by women and named after a role model for female entrepreneurship, the wife of Prophet Muhammad. Siti Khadijah is a paradise for traditional crafts and delicious home-made desserts, and most fittingly, it has a delightful community feel to it.
Once you’ve sampled the baked goods and admired the handiwork, The Craft Museum in the centre of the cultural zone of Khota Bharu will give you insights into local artisan trade. Enjoy a traditional Kelantanese lunch at Balai Sulur Gadung before continuing on to the Handicraft Village next door. Here, you’ll see plenty of stunning examples of delicate embroidery, elegant wood carvings, intricate weaving, sophisticated silver work and colourful batik prints.

“I cannot fault Lyria, from our very first contact to our return to the UK after the holiday, she gave us an exemplary service. In the planning stages, she listened carefully to our requests and the sort of holiday we were wanting to experience; Lyria really went the extra mile looking into everything and created the balance we were looking for. Throughout, her response has been quick, friendly and efficient, giving us a very personalised service. I would definitely recommend Experience Travel.”
