Kelantan is the home of giant kites that soar through the air with nary a
care in the world. Kite-flying usually takes place after the harvest when farmers
have time on their hands to fashion and fly these wau. There are many different
types wau kuching (cat kite), wau merak (peacock kite), wau bulan (moon kite)
to name a few.
Kite-making requires tremendous skill and patience. The art is usually handed
down from father to son. Along the road to Pantai Cahaya Bulan, there are many
such establishments producing these gaily-decorated kites. These establishments
can be reached by boarding Bus No. 10 in front of the New Central Market.
