  • I would like to said that this tower certainly does give me a great panoramic view of the whole city of Alor Setar. Even though the tower is shorter and smaller compared to in the Kuala Lumpur Tower, but it is still being able to accomodate lots of tourist to enjoy the city view. There is still quite a number of tourist flock into this city to travel, anyways. Lastly, you can enjoy the magnaficient paddy field view from this tower as Alor Setar is also being famous for it's paddy fields. The Alor Setar tower still can be improved in order to compete with the Kl Tower.
  • The building maintenance is bad. Nothing to enjoy other than the view. The staff instructions like scolding children. Not worth the money paid.
  • Very impressive tower... landmark in Alor Setar... beautifully lit up at night
  • Currently the view deck under maintenance...only Level 3 is accessible for the view. Stay there for like 10 minutes and paid RM9...bit expensive with nothing to do up there...could reduce the ticket to RM5....lol
  • Great places to see the view the Alor Setar city but it have less information about the state history and have less souvenier.

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.
