|Postcards - Kedah and Perlis
Kedah and Perlis are two states in the northwest of Peninsula Malaysia. This is Malaysia's rice growing area and the limestone outcrops are often surrounded by padi fields. The Langkawi Islands belong to the state of Kedah.
The caves of Gunung Keriang in Kedah are being plundered by crystal collectors and there is also talk of developing the caves for tourism.
