Sekinchan Day trip what to do

Sekinchan (適耕莊:鱼米之乡)has been so popular recently for day trip, it's paddy field as well as seafood. You can pretty much see alot posting photos of paddy field in the social media. I've never been to sekinchan and it is the right time to pay a visit as of this month(June) the paddy field will be in Golden tone.

Depart from KL and arrived in Sekinchan after about one and a half hour of driving. The paddy museum signboard is the first thing I saw as soon as we've arrived. Following the signboard to the paddy museum, there's another signboard that says large scale 'wall art', out of Curiosity then follow the signboard in hope to see some really cool large scale paintings, sadly after a few turning left and right, got no idea where it leads, if you've seen the wall art would be great if you can share. Your blog or photo down at the comment section below.

So our first stop are the paddy museum, you can get a ticket to enter the museum,  there's also souvenir shop where you can buy rice, brown rice noodle and some other products that made from rice.

yummy Durian ice cream


The durian flavoured ice cream taste really good especially on this hot weather.

Small stall


Bought freshly picked corns 7 for Rm10 from the small stall beside the museum, there's also fruits and some sea products. Sekinchan are famous for its paddy as well as sea products.

Wa zai mango

While on the way to the other attraction,  Nan tian gong temple, visited Wa zai mango to get some really huge mangos.

The Nan tian gong temple is just next to the paddy field,  a great spot to take photos of the paddy field, there's also lookout tower you can climb up to view the paddy field from top.

Back to the paddy museum, there's a signboard to La familia orchard, unfortunately it was not open today, good thing is more photos of paddy field from a different view.

On the way to the famous beach "pantai redang" you will passby a nicely decorated souvenir shop  with a cute name "Grandma's house" 阿嬷的家 for some snacks and cold drinks.

Pantai redang beach is pretty crowded, there's a small temple and a wishing tree where you can throw and hang the red ribbon onto the tree. You can also see fishing boats that are very photogenic. One can camp here, fishing, picnic and all you really do at the beach is relax, no swimming though, as the water here are dirty.

We talked to a local friendly little girl who helped her father to collect the entrance fee for the toilet while he is away, she keeps complaining about how boring is the job just by sitting there for hours. She know exactly the spot where to collect the best seashell, our evening are basically collecting seashells by the beach until dinner time since there is nothing much left to do in Sekinchan.
