Kedah is more than the rice bowl of Malaysia. It offers a host of attractions that delights visitors of all ages and interests.
It has the oldest Sultanate in the history of the country and next to Malacca, abounds with historical attractions like the Bujang Valley and the Kuala Kedah Fort.
Bujang Valley takes the name of a legendary winged dragon (Bhujangga) and was a renowned kingdom and port in 5th century AD.
The Kuala Kedah Fort was erected in the 18th century to repel Siamese attacks. It might have been a war zone then, but today draws foodies attracted by its seafood offerings, particularly laksa.
