  • The landmark of Alor Setar, a place family visit during weekend for picnic. There was a restaurant located on top level of the tower, can try out the foods and enjoy the aerial view of Alor Setar. Wheelchair accessible car park and entry are available. There was entry charges to visit the tower.
  • Good place to view 360 degree panoramic of Alor Setar, Kedah. Accessible view at 3rd level. It was hazy with boring muddy clouds all around. Advisable to check waether before going. I like to point the step up stainless steel stand are not screwed down and could be potentially endangering anyone.
