A visit to the Rice Museum is interesting and informative. It makes one appreciate all the work that goes into the planting, cultivation and harvesting of rice. It was an interesting experience. Our guide spoke with excellent English. We are glad that it was included on our tour. If you are brave enough to step into the rice field, you... More

There was an interesting exhibition with some nice dioramas in the main building (AC). Outside it was nice to stroll along the edges of the small well kept rice paddies. There were... More

The reviews for this place are quite mixed so we went along not knowing what to expect.

There are few signs and no explanations - if there is an actual indoor museum then we didn't find it. But... More

These gardens are pleasant to spend half an hour to an hour strolling through. The rice paddies are interesting as are the exhibits, especially about the Field of Burnt Rice. This is conveniently located at the north end of the Cenang strip.
