Balai Nobat

This imposing 18 meter-tall building sits patiently in Alor Setar. It houses the royal musical instrument set known as the Nobat, which is played by the Royal Orchestra only during royal ceremonies including inaugurations, royal births, weddings, and funerals. It is believed to have Hindu origins dating back centuries ago.

Birth House of Dr Mahathir Mohamad

This humble house made of attap wood was the birthplace of Malaysia’s fourth and arguably, most outspoken Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir. Memorabilia relating to the life and times of Dr. Mahathir Mohamad are displayed in the interior and the exterior of the house which will, hopefully, give you a deep insight into his persona.

Bujang Valley

Bujang Valley is located near the town of Sungai Petani and was the scene of a once thriving Hindu-Buddhist civilization dating to the 5th Century. Over 50 archaeological sites have been discovered here containing the ruins of Hindu and Buddhist temples. The Lembah Bujang Archaeological Museum was built here to display some of the findings, including pottery shards, ceramics and stone carvings. Indian tridents and gemstones from the Middle East are also displayed.

Bukit Hijau

Situated in the heart of the Gunung Inas Virgin Forest Reserve in Baling, the Bukit Hijau recreational forest has an incredible variety of flora and fauna. Many people come here to swim in its streams fed by a seven-tiered waterfall famous for its pure, crystal-clear waters.

Bukit Pinang

Bukit Pinang, located in Gunung Inas, is an orchard famous for its local durians, a thorny fruit with an aroma to boot. Visitors can also sample other delicious tropical fruit which is freshly grown here all-year-round.

Pedu Lake

This lake was created by making a dam out of a water catchment area deep in the jungles of Kedah to supply paddy farmers with water. Now the lake also doubles up as a peaceful retreat, famous for its ‘tualang’ trees and honey from bees.

Seri Perigi

The Seri Perigi Recreational Forest is located 35 km away from Alor Setar. The highlight is a spectacular 100 meter drop of waterfalls, which is also popular as a picnic spot among locals. The famed Jerai Mountain feeds this waterfall directly, so you can enjoy a cold and refreshing bath in refreshing mountain water.
