Alor Setar (Lat.:6.140642,Lng.:100.354164)

booked.net

Alor Setar is the state capital of Kedah, on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is arguably the state capital on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia that is richest in Malay culture.

Despite the development and being the state capital, tourists are able to enjoy the scenic view of paddy plantations around the outskirts of the city.

Get in
By road
Alor Star is easily (and most practically) accessible using the North-South Expressway. A bus trip from Kuala Lumpur will take about 6-7 hours of travelling time. Bus services from Bukit Kayu Hitam are also available for visitors from Thailand.

By train
There is an inter-city train station located in the city that serves trains to all major stations.

By plane
Being the capital state of Kedah, travel via air to Alor Star is as practical as via land. Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia serve daily flights from Kuala Lumpur (LCCT, KLIA2), lasting 55 minutes; while Firefly offers daily flights from Kuala Lumpur via the city airport of Skypark Terminal in Subang. From the airport, travellers can take a taxi to Alor Star city centre, which is 13km away.
