Kedah ~ Sights & Visits

Intro & Background Sights & Visits Langkawi Kedah Map


 Kedah is one of the best destinations for those seeking retreat from urban living as its pristine environment is still intact despite the development taking place in the state.



Having all the ingredients that make it an ideal haven for an adventure holiday,

varied landscape, superb natural settings, year round sunshine, Kedah is the ultimate destination for the eco-tourists.



Sights & Visits

Alor Setar, the capital of the state of Kedah has historical and cultural

attractions. Many of them are a walk away from one another and sited at Jalan Raja, West of Sungai Kedah, which runs through the town.

Things to see in the capital include the central market, Pekan Rabu,

where one can shop for a variety of local wares and handicrafts, historical

buildings, museums and other places of interests.

For those inclined for the greenery, there are recreational forests and

waterfalls of cool, crystal clear water. Activities available there include jungle trekking, nature walks camping and other eco based activities.

More than a land of mere scenery, however, is its history.

From the remains of an early Malay fort at Kota Kuala Kedah to the site of Malaysia's most extensive ruins in the Bujang Valley with its sprawling remains

of a Hindu kingdom believed to date back to the 6th century A.D.

Other attractions include its enchanting beach of Pantai Merdeka, the quiet tranquility of Pedu lake, the highland retreat of Gunung Jerai, the untouched nature reserve at Ulu Muda and the thrills of white water in Sungei Sedim.


Off Kedah's western shores are clusters of sun-drenched islands that comprise

the legendary archipelago of Langkawi, easily the most popular resort

location in the country.
