A kite-maker or 'wau' as they call it there are a unique artform only exist in the state of Kelantan in Malaysia. Located in northern most land on the East Coast, it offers a unique blend of food, culture and craftmanship that infuse a touch of Siam. An almost lost art, kite-makers skills and trade secrets are pass to the next generation by blood-line.
