Kelantan, Malaysia

Kelantan is a state of Malaysia that is located in the east coast region of the country peninsula. The state of Kelantan is known for their unique local culture and dialect, and they are proud of it. With the Kelantanese Malay people being the predominant ethnic group in the state, the rich Malay traditions such as kite-flying contests, top-spinning contests, and bird singing competitions, and traditional handicrafts such as batik, kain songket, and paintings and wood carvings are still preserved. Even so, Kelantan's economy is still predominantly riding on paddy, rubber, and tobacco as cash crops but not forgetting the fishing and rearing livestocks. As for their dialect, it is called the Kelantanese Malay and it is very distinctive compared to the standard Malay language. One can speak fluent standard Malay but have trouble understanding their dialect. Not only is their language distinctive but it's the same for their food as well. The commonly known ones are Nasi Dagang and Nasi Kerabu.

Similar to Terengganu, both states experience the same climate due to their geographical location. They are often the first two states to experience the landfall of the northeast monsoon season each year which leads to floods in the lowland areas. During the northeast monsoon season, floods may last for two to three days or in severe cases, up to eight days.

Within walking distance to amenities such as banks and eateries, as well as Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM). Some units are put up for short stays like Airbnb, Agoda, and Booking. A Malay-majority area.

Marketed as the tallest building in the state and the golden triangle of the city because of its strategic location in the heart of the city.

Expensive residential development. Selling point:

1. First premium gated and guarded community
2. Elevated living & park
