Pantai Merdeka

Located approximately 60km south of Alor Setar, Pantai Merdeka is endowed with a stretch of white sunny beaches that are shaded with tall swaying palms. Water skiing and sailing are popular along this stretch of coastal water. One can also choose to have picnics here or just laze around. Pantai Merdeka makes a great place to relax and unwind.

Kuala Kedah

Located about 12km from Alor Setar, this town is home to Kota Kuala Kedah. It is a fort that was built around 1770 to protect Kedah from enemies who came in from the sea. It is said that stone masons were specially brought in from India to build the fort. Today, it is a busy fishing village and a paradise for seafood.

Bukit Kayu Hitam

This border town acts as the main entrance to Thailand. Most of the traffic between these two countries and all the buses to Hat Yai in Thailand come through this way. Apart from that, the Duty Free Shopping Annex offers shopping at bargain prices. For those who want some relaxation, there is a newly constructed golf course of international standard.


There are a few parks in Kedah that are blessed with magnificent waterfalls. One favorite weekend retreat is Batu Kampar. Picnickers can revel in the cool depths of rocky pools while enjoying the thundering roars of the waterfall. Peranginan Bukit Hijau in the district of Baling offers another park, which features a waterfall amidst lush greenery. Other waterfalls include Puncak Janing and Seri Perigi.
