This landmark in the heart of Kota Baru in Kelantan is named after Prophet Muhammad’s first wife who was a savvy businesswoman. The name is an apt representation of the bustling market as the majority of businesses here are run by women.

If you’re looking to get a glimpse of local life, then Pasar Siti Khadijah – with its cacophony of sights, sounds and scents that are typical of a local market – is definitely the place to be.
