Home to many mosques, Kota Bharu is a city in Malaysia that serves as the state capital and royal seat of Kelantan. Kota Bharu features a tropical monsoon climate that borders on a tropical rainforest climate, with daily temperatures ranging from 23.3 to 30.9 degrees Celsius. The city experiences heavy rainfall from August to January, with no true dry seasons and cool monsoon winds in the months of December, January, and February. Compared to Kuala Lumpur, the cost of living in Kota Bharu is slightly lower, primarily because the former is an urban city that serves as the heart of the whole country. Travellers should still prepare some extra cash though, if they are planning on exploring the outer areas of the city.
