Kedah is located in the north-western part of Peninsular Malaysia. The state consists of the mainland and Langkawi – an archipelago of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, most of which are uninhabited. The mainland has a relatively flat terrain, which is ideal for growing rice. Hence, the state has been named the ‘rice bowl’ of Malaysia. Langkawi is famous for its beaches and seafood.
Kedah borders the states of Perlis, Perak and Penang. It also shares international borders with Songkla and Yala provinces of Thailand to the north. Its state capital is Alor Setar. Some of the state’s interesting landmarks include Lembah Bujang Archaeological Museum, Istana Anak Bukit and Paddy Museum.
In addition to growing rice, tourism in Langkawi also contributes to the economic growth of Kedah. Since 1996, the state has forged its economy towards the automotive and aerospace industries with completion of the Kulim Hi-Tech Park. Commercial properties in this state include shop-office lots, retail space, office units and industrial lots. Terraced houses, semi-detached houses, bungalows, condominiums and apartments are popular residential properties in this state.
Like the rest of Malaysia, Kedah has a tropical rainforest climate. There are two distinct seasons. The dry season runs from January to March. Rainfall may vary throughout the rest of the year but typically intensifies during the end of the year. Humidity is high all year round and temperatures range from 21 to 32˚C.
Hindu-Buddhist influences were revealed from the archaeological discoveries in Lembah Bujang. After independence, the state has been ruled under the Kedah Sultanate. Three major ethnic groups make up most of Kedah’s population – Malay, Chinese and Indian. Some of the notable traditional songs and dances include Tarian Cinta Sayang, Lagu-lagu Berendoi and Wayang Kulit. Due to its close proximity to Thailand, some of the state’s traditions and food also reflect Thai influence.(Read More)
