Kelantan is one of the states in Malaysia.

Kelantan is positioned in the north-east of the Malaysian Peninsula. It internationally borders Thailand. Internally, it borders Terengganu, Kedah, and Pahang: other states in Malaysia.

The east of Kelantan is the coastal side with South China Sea washing its beach.

Historically, it was once part of Siam.

Circa 1945, it became the first spot where the Japanese first landed to conquer Tanah Melayu (Malaysia's former name before independence). Amazingly, the Japanese used bicycles to move about all the way down to Singapore and only took 3 days to do so.
