  • This is the Kedah rapid development. It is the second highest tower in West Asia and the 19th-highest tower in the world. It has a dining hall and a shop under the stairs. In the middle of the tower, about 88 meters from the ground, there is a watch table. From here, I can see the scenery around the city of Rome. As the weather was very good, one of the people told me that he could even see the southern part of Thailand.

  • I love my fiance so much. (the yellow)
  • Good enough. And price is acceptable. But now open until 11pm.
  • Like the other guy said, if you've come to town in the late afternoon and all the museums are closed and you have nothing else to do, it doesn't hurt to come here. Admission is reasonable, but foreigners get charged more.
  • A place of attraction in Alor Setar. Will I consider to visit this place again? Yes 😊😊😊
  • An icon to Alor Setar, you can see the whole city from the viewing deck on top. The revolving restaurant is not in operations at moment as they dont have a new caterer yet.

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.
