Alor Setar

Historic Sites · Observation Decks · Shopping Malls
The capital of the state of Kedah on the west coast of the Malaysian Peninsula, Alor Setar ranks as the tenth-largest city in Malaysia by population. The city remains very conservative, adhering to a strict interpretation of Islam and cultivating a deep loyalty and respect for the local monarchy. Alor Setar's location in the northwest of the peninsula makes taking a trip over to neighboring Thailand simple. Despite heavy Islamic influence in the area, the many historical attractions in Alor Setar represent multiple Asian religions. Our Malaysia online travel route builder allows you to schedule your trip to Alor Setar, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Alor Setar

The amount of choices for where to go for a night's rest is disproportionately small for a city of Alor Setar's size. Most of the options cluster in the center of the city to the east of the river. The hotels in general are three-star, but you can find a few four- or five-star accommodations if you look along the outskirts of the city. Also find a few budget-traveler options spaced around the city.
