On my Peninsular and Southeast Asia Travel Tour 2007 I spent some days in Kota Baru in the Zeck Travelers Inn. Zeck, the owner of this Guest House bring me and to other guests to a Monkey Contest. On this contest many people from everywhere in Malaysia come with them Monkeys to catch Coconuts from palm trees. The winner was the Monkey who took the most Coconuts in one minute. It was a big spectacle in Kota Baru near the Boarder to Thailand. I arrived by Bus from Pulau Perhentian in the South Chinese Sea. In this State Capital you will find many small Restaurants who offer good Indian and other Asia Food. My favorits are Meena Curry House, Restoran Sri Devi and Hayaki.

My highlight at Kota Baru in Peninsular (West Malaysia) was the Central Market. Many locals offer in a modern Markt building fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, all kind of meat and clothes. On the way to the market you will pass some supermarkets and other shops where you can watch the all day life of the habitats of Kota Baru. Many people come here to visit the Thai Consulate to get a Visa for Travel Thailand. A lot Traverllers, Tourists and Backpackers arrive at Malaysia’s Kota Baru Airport from Kuala Lumpur to travel Perhentian Islands which is easy to reach from here by Public Bus Taxi or Minivan. Kota Baru have good structures for Backpackers, ATM’s, Guest Houses, Restaurants, Hostels and Hotels are widespread. The Travel options are nearly endless, here are a Airport, Bus Terminal and a Train Station for connections in Peninsular, Thailand and Singapore.

From the Railway Station I took a Train to Singapore, I recommend to book the tickets in advanced because it’s happen many times that the Train is fully booked. For more Informations about this Town in Malaysia read your Lonely Planet Travel Book or ask in the Tourist Information Center in the City of Kota Bara in Asia.
