Late afternoon on a street in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan.

In Malaysia, we drive on the left side of the road. The small towns are often congested as more buildings are built while the streets remain unchanged. Narrow streets and a lack of parking spaces are common in rural Malaysia.

A drive through the main street in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan.

A storm is approaching, adding an intense mood to this border town. A narrow section of Sungai Golok separates the town from Thailand. For an outsider visiting the first time, the feeling is noticeably edgy.

This rustic town has a duty-free zone popular for its Thai foodstuff, clothing and housewares. Not a sleepy town, the atmosphere here is generally intense.
