Kedah


A state of Malaysia, located in the northwestern part of Peninsular Malaysia. Its territory is distributed between the peninsular mainland and Langkawi. The mainland has a relatively flat terrain, which is used to grow rice. Langkawi is an archipelago of islands, most of which are uninhabited. Langkawi is the most known destination in Kedah, but there are attractions in the mainland too, such as waterfalls and the Lembah Bujang (Bujang Valley) Archaeological Park.
