The largest town in Kedah, Sungai Petani has definitely experienced its fair share of development over the years. Enjoying a steady and rising economy, the town is now home to numerous attractions that entice visitors. Despite a rapid development, the town is still retaining many of its old world charm that reminds of life in the early days of Malaysia.

The Sungai Petani railway station has always been a major transportation hub for the town. A nearby bus station also functions to provide both long and short distance bus services. With the KL to Sungai Petani ETS train services, the town now gains access to higher speed railway transportation as well.


Currently, Sungai Petani is slowly developing towards the tourism sector as an attempt to fuel its economic growth. Several notable shopping malls have been established in recent years as the city moves towards urbanisation. However, eco-tourism and historical heritage sites are still extensively preserved and maintained as another outlet to attract more visitors as well. The Silver Jubilee Park and Clock Tower stands alongside modern structures such as the Riverfront City. The town even has its own water park and extensive mangrove swamp. Visitors are welcomed by a truly unique town where nature, history, and modernisation co-exist together.
