Historic Sites · Observation Decks · Shopping Malls
The capital of the state of Kedah on the west coast of the Malaysian Peninsula, Alor Setar ranks as the tenth-largest city in Malaysia by population. The city remains very conservative, adhering to a strict interpretation of Islam and cultivating a deep loyalty and respect for the local monarchy. Alor Setar's location in the northwest of the peninsula makes taking a trip over to neighboring Thailand simple. Despite heavy Islamic influence in the area, the many historical attractions in Alor Setar represent multiple Asian religions. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Alor Setar and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
