As you travel into Kedah, you'll notice the endless rice paddies that reflect why the locals call this region the Rice Bowl of Malaysia. Thanks to the strong local industry, there have been people settled in this area since the 6th century. You can explore the archaeological site in the Bujang Valley, and wander through the museum to see the celadon porcelain, stoneware, beads and ceramics that were discovered here.
Get out to nature and visit the Bukit Hijau Waterfall. The large pools at the base of the falls are very inviting, so don't forget your swimsuit! Enjoy the beautiful combination of the national park, several little waterfalls, and a food court that serves up a delicious lunch. For a bit of relaxation, the Ulu Legong Hot Springs are ideal. There you can soak in the therapeutic mineral water and let stress slip away. The springs are open 24 hours and the best time to visit is in the evening, so you can enjoy a nice hot dip as you're surrounded by the cool night air.
The State Museum gives visitors an insight into Kedah's rich history, and has an impressive collection of artefacts, historical relics and paintings from the region. You can even see many precious antiques on display. Soak in a panoramic view of the city from Alor Setar Tower, or take a Kilim River Cruise and wind through the peaceful waterways of the national park. If you love birds, don't miss it! You're almost guaranteed to spot many different types of eagle soaring above you. Stop in at the fish farm at the point where the limestone cliffs open to the sea and feed the hungry marine life in their pools, then satisfy your own hunger with a fresh seafood meal in their restaurant.
Kedah is the best launching point for Malaysia's most famous islands. Take a dive trip out to Langkawi
and explore the clear tropical waters, or simply find a nice spot on a sandy beach to laze in the sun. You can learn to sail in the bay, or rent a kayak to travel around the island at a more sedate pace. Stop in at the Langkawi Bird Paradise, where you can see over 2500 different species of birds, and a massive open air aviary.
