This is a small town centrally located in north Malaysia. Peoples are friendly and helpfull. However, don't expect much on their English.
Anyway if you walked into a hotel and see a Malay receptionist, just get them to do what they normally do and that's all. Don't expect! If you can find someone with lots of info to share, you should really appreciated and give him some credit. With the highway built, the city should be able to developed but somehow it is not.
SP is a growing city. It has much wealth and the people are genuinely friendly. It is an excellent place just to relax and have some good Malaysian Chinese food
North Malaysia is welknown for their hawker food and hence, Sungai Petani as well. There's a Thai Restaurant known as Mae Salong, just google it.
The food is just normal to me but my family member enjoy it very much. Nice environment, reservation si not compulsary but strongly recomended as it is always overcrouded.
Sungai petani is in d center u can travel to Penang by 45 mins journey or u can go to hatyai will take about 2 hrs journey .
Sungai Petani is a town area where everything is simply enough. The best part of it is it is located near to many fisherman's village.
just make sure you know where to go and you will be served with the best view in malaysia.
Not much things to do. Noticed a waterpark around the city. But guess not so good as not much people aroung even during weekends.
Not for the fussy travelers. This place can be considered boring for most but basically meets the demands of a simple life.
The people are friendly, plenty of cafes and eateries at the newer township Lagenda Heights area. The main older town has an old charm to it.
Bring along sunblock or an umbrella as malaysian weather is unpredictable. Oh and you need to try the "Duo Ban" noodles as it is unique only to this region.
The best place to shop in the Northern region of Peninsular Malaysia other than Penang is Sungai Petani.
Sungai Petani is also surrounded by historical sites related to the trade routes of the "Golden Chersonese". If one is interested to go for hiking, Gunung Jerai (Jerai Mountain) is will satisfy your taste for adventure and for you to catch a bird's view of the rice bowl of Malaysia. The cool air is certainly refreshing.

Population of equal composition of Malay, Chinese and Indians. Nice sight seeing for huge padi field area surrounding Sungai petani. It is a good place to relax and play golf and young children will like the water park near sky residence.
Quiet place, good food and leisurely pace of life. A visit to the mangrove jetty on the way to AMIST university/ the way to Lembah Bujang could be interesting, lovely riverside view.
It is nice to get a few days from the big city such as KL or George town. It is only 40 km away from Penang which is easily accessible by highway.
