Alor Setar also known as Alor Star is known as the rice bowl of Malaysia. The rice Padi museum provides a great insight into the history of rice production in the region.
The museum provides great value and is not a tourist trap. If you have time, a few hundred meters down the road is a technology museum. This is a great tactile learning place for kids.....big kids will enjoy it as well :-).
If you are staying in Kedah do also try the various hawker centers, the food here is great. You will also find the ferry port for Lankouwi (spelling?).
Alor Star Kedah is a rural town with a certain charm if you have time enough to become sympatico with its rythym.
