Right on the Thai border, Pengkalan Kubor is the immigration check point for this little used back route to Thailand. During the day, a large car ferry (60 sen for pedestrians) crosses the river over to busy Tak Bai in Thailand (If you have the guts, you do not need passport to cross over and come back). It's a tax-free zone, so the shopping is good if you know how to bargain - electronic goods, houseware items, and clothes are popular items. The road from Kota Bharu passes through some of the most traditional villages in Kelantan.
