The traffic around Bukit Layang-Layang during the World Kite Festival (18-23 February 2014) was jam packed.

The locals swamped to the festival not merely for the flying kites, but the carnival like stalls on the hillside.

KFC and Pizza Hut were one of the event sponsor but their stall did not open until 10am. We ended up having Nasi Lemak at another stall.

I loved the pineapple but ironically, these were Philippines pineapples (Johor is the largest producer of pineapples in Malaysia).

I am yet to visit another kite festival held at Kelantan. Perhaps I could see more Wau Bulan and Keropok Lekor in Kelantan.
