    Why book with Wotif ?

    Pocket Guide: Alor Setar

    Alor Setar is a small Malaysian city near Thailand’s border where you’ll get to live and breathe the local culture. Chock full of beautiful religious buildings like the gold, white and green Wat Nikrodharam (temple) and historical sites like the birthplace of Malaysia’s fourth prime minister, this state capital is a time machine to the way things used to be. Almost all the food to be found is fresh, flavourful and genuine cuisine that is not watered down for tourists. Whether you are passing through or want to stay for the long haul, book from our range of Alor Setar accommodation to experience a true blast from the past.

    Alor Setar sits near the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia where the sun rises over rice paddies and distant hills, then sets in scorching colours over the horizon of the Indian Ocean. The town is an odd mix of Thai and Malay due to being ruled by one or the other over the years. Wat Nikrodharam, for example, glints gold in the sun and has carvings and figures on its exterior similar to temples you’ll see all over Thailand. It may not be the biggest or most impressive temple, but there is an air of importance around this colourful and proud building. Then there’s the Masjid Zahir (Zahir State Mosque), a Muslim place of worship just as captivating as its Buddhist counterpart, but simpler with cream walls, and large dark brown domes. The importance of both religions is easy to grasp in Alor Setar.

    More windows into the past can be found at the State Art Gallery, where paintings, photos and musical instruments paint a picture of how the artistic scene has evolved over the years. Muxium Padi teaches visitors that everything that happens in the rice harvesting process is important to the region, even organising a traditional cow caravan on weekends.

    It’s not totally about the past here though. The Alor Setar Tower stretches 165m above the low city as a symbol of the region’s modernisation. It has a rotating restaurant (Restoran Sri Angkasa) where the view can be enjoyed along with a meal. The real hearty meals are served down at street level day in, day out. Rice noodles with fish gravy, the filling and scrumptious meat bone dish called bak-kut-teh, and simple but satisfying Chinese roasted meat and rice dishes will have you feeling like a local and ready to try more.

    A flight to Malaysia and one of our Alor Setar hotels are your ticket to a place where time seems to stand still in certain parts of the city, while not even 100km away from modern Georgetown and Penang. It will complete your experience of this astonishing and diverse country, so book your Alor Setar holiday today!
