Abstract

The aim of this research is to identify the natural resources and features in the Kelantan Delta area with regard to the suitability for ecotourism. This delta is famous for its mangrove forest and its natural beauty as the habitat of some natural resources. It is not only a considerable ecotourism area for people who live in Tumpat district and Kota Bharu district, where the delta is located, but also for people who living in other districts in the state of Kelantan, people from other states in Malaysia and tourists from overseas as well. Field observation was carried out in some islands of the delta to identify the natural resources and features of the area. The study clearly shows that the mangrove forest is the main attraction of the delta. Other resources and features also support the area to be promoted as an ecotourism site such as the diversity of flora and fauna, rivers, and delta environment.
