Kedah, Malaysia

Kedah, a state in Malaysia, is situated in the northern region of the country's peninsula, encompassing both the mainland and the renowned Langkawi island. Kedah is often referred to as the "rice bowl" of Malaysia due to its distinction as the largest rice producer in the country, primarily on the mainland. Additionally, Langkawi is celebrated as a duty-free island, allowing individuals to make unrestricted purchases of alcohol and tobacco as of March 27, 2019. However, it's important to note that restrictions on taking these items out of the island still apply.

Despite having lower household income compared to more affluent states like Johor, Penang, and Selangor, Kedah offers a balanced lifestyle with a lower cost of living, affordable homes, and a less dense environment. The most vibrant area for residential and township developments is Sungai Petani, which boasts the highest number of new launches and ongoing projects. Other popular areas for development include Jitra (the fourth largest town in Kedah), Kuala Ketil (located between Kulim and Sungai Petani), and Kulim (home to the Kulim Hi-Tech Park).

The following shows the residential property transactions in Kedah over the last few years:

Under the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP), Kedah is set to receive nearly RM5 billion in high-impact infrastructure projects and development from the federal government. Approved projects include the development of the Kulim International Airport with a value of RM1.6 billion, the construction of highways from Bandar Baharu to Sungai Petani and from Bandar Baharu to Penang's second bridge, the Sidam Manufacturing Industry and Logistics Hub, the Alor Setar Digital Library, and the Gurun Petrochemical Industrial Park.

Overall, Kedah presents promising opportunities for growth and development, with significant investments in infrastructure and a range of attractive residential and industrial areas.
