Abode of Peace
Kedah, a state comprised of flat, arable terrain on the mainland and an archipelago of islands just off the coast, has earned the nickname, “The Rice Bowl of Malaysia” for its landscape of small towns dotted across rice paddies and farms. The region's beaches and lagoons are rich in marine life. The archipelago has been developed as a tourist's paradise, with activity and relaxation both playing a leading role in most Kedah holidays.
