Kuala Kedah

Kuala Kedah Fishing Village

Kuala Kedah is a fishing village located at the mouth of Kedah river (Sungai Kedah). It’s about 20 minutes journey from the city of Alor Setar with the new upgraded 4-lanes road leading to it. Along the road to Kuala Kedah, try to stop at one of the many road side stalls selling the infamous Laksa Telok Kechai.

Kuala Kedah marina

Kuala Kedah also served as a gateway to Malaysia’s renowned Langkawi island via the Kuala Kedah jetty with ferry. Ferry rides from Kuala Kedah to Langkawi took approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Try to seat at the right hand side of the ferry, one will be able to see the beautiful castle-like Kuala Kedah marina. Though the marina has been completed 2 years ago, there’s no new development and it’s not open to the public. Recently, ambitious local authorities announced plan to develop the marina into a waterfront city. Hope the Kuala Kedah marina will not be another white elephant baking under the hot sun.

Kota Kuala Kedah Lighthouse

Just beside the marina, there’s an old historical fort built to protect from naval attacks with loose canons known as Kota Kuala Kedah or Kota by the locals. Above picture shows the lighthouse inside the newly repaired rectangular fort. Kota Kuala Kedah can be accessed by road via the Tok Pasai bridge which connect the two sides of Kuala Kedah seperated by the Kedah river.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty
    worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
