  STS075-733-095 Kelantan River, Malaysia March 1996
Located near the border of Thailand (extreme right), the Kelantan River and its delta are visible in this southwest-looking view. Over 150 miles (242 km) long, the Kelantan rises in the interior mountains of the Malaysian Peninisula and flows generally north-northeast before emptying into the South China Sea (bottom of the image). The river has numerous tributaries and is navigable for much of its course. Much clearing (center of the image) of the fertile coastal plain is underway, with rice fields and rubber and coconut plantations taking over. Barely discernible on the east (left) bank of the Kelantan River (midway between the bottom center and center of the image) is the modern commercial city of Kota Baharu.
