If you have not been to Sekinchan and happen to pass by, drop by this town with your family. This coastal town is located at the west coast of Selangor in the district of Sabak Bernam and is about 90 minutes away from Petaling Jaya. If you are coming from Petaling Jaya, head for Sungai Buluh and use the coastal road to Kuala Selangor. The other alternative is to use the Guthrie Corridor Expressway and follow the direction towards Kuala Selangor.
You will pass by Ijok, Bukit Rotan, Kampung Asam Jawa before reaching Kuala Selangor. After Kuala Selangor, go towards the direction of Tanjung Karang. The next town after Tanjung Karang will be Sekinchan. Some of the activities that you can do here include stopping by the paddy fields, take your lunch or dinner at the restaurants in town and finally buying some fruits and at the many stalls by the road side as you travel back to the city.
This town is reputed to be the highest yield-producing rice in Malaysia. Remember to take your camera along with you as the vast expanse of the paddy fields will look great for outdoor family photos. Depending on the season, you may see the green paddy plants thriving or farmers using tractors to prepare the ground for planting.
You can drive a few kilometres and enjoy the scenic view of the flat-land with proper irrigation system. Stop by some spots and take some photos. A great place for outdoor photography.
You are welcome to pay a visit to our rice mill which is located in the centre of the paddy field. You could find many educational information such as the processing of rice, seeding process and many more. You can learn the history from our Malaysian First Paddy Gallery as well.
