Kedah is a state located at the northwestern part of Peninsular Malaysia. Similar to Penang, the state consists of 2 main parts: the mainland and the popular island, Langkawi. It is also one of the main paddy field areas in Malaysia. The estimated population in Kedah in around 2.07 million as of 2015.

The official working days are from Sunday to Thursday, thus making the public holidays in Kedah slightly different than the national holidays. “Laksa Kedah”, a dish of rice noodles in a fish-based-asam-flavoured gravy should be in your food-to-eat list when you plan a holiday there. One of the most popular stalls is Zakaria Laksa Teluk Kechai in Jalan Kuala Kedah.
