How to Get There: Rantau Panjang Immigration - Kota Bharu Airport

This is the first in my series for those travellers on a shoe string,
trying to get around the best they can...
Since I'm currently sitting in the Kota Bharu Airport,
(which btw is one of the most obscure ones I've ever seen)
I thought this is the best way to start...

For those just interested to get from the Rantau Panjang Immigration 
(meaning travellers from Thailand, especially Sungai Golok)
just follow steps one and two...

1. After immigration, walk out straight following the shaded areas
to the corner before the Bus station.
2. Wait for bus SKMK's red bus #29.
The 36 km ride will take you about 45 minutes to get to the central bus station

Route: Rantau Panjang - Kota Bharu Central Bus Station
Bus #: 29
Cost: RM5.10
Estimated travel time: 45 minutes

3. To get to the airport, grab another SKMK's red bus, but this time #9. After passing the University Malaya Kelantan, look out for the airport just around the corner... It is kind of small so be sure not to miss it.
(or if you are as fortunate as me, the driver told me when to get off)

And just a tip, avoid taking this bus around 2 - 3 p.m. on weekdays (Sunday - Thursday in Kelantan). As I had the misfortune of being trapped in a bus with triple the rated standing capacity of the bus with a lot of inconsiderate students... 

Route: Kota Bharu Central Bus Station - Kota Bharu Airport
Bus #: 09
Cost: RM1.80
Estimated travel time: 20 minutes
