Visited on a TUI excursion but really not worth it. Didn’t see any staff and if it hadn’t been for our tour guide we wouldn’t have got to know much. Outside rice is growing at various stages and inside implements used in its cultivation.

Im not sure if the time we visit is not the rice season, but honestly this museum is not available for visitors. No proper signage, the paddy field are cover by water spinach, frog laying eggs meaning the field are not well maintain for paddy.

Interesting museum but did not see a single person around whole attraction !! Would have been interesting for someone or signs to explain what was happening on each padi field outside

Taxi's guys were accommodating, about 40 ringit from our hotel to Cenang main shopping area. They seemed well organised, but not very clean.

For a culture that is too attached to rice I ecpected to see a larger exhibit, and the place is almost abandoned, I didn't see any employee. Surrounding is a rice field that is having all stages of rice, nice to view its growth, and...More

The rice museum is a little odd as it looks closed (no staff that we could see) but seems to be a self-guided free museum. The museum itself was interesting with plenty of signage to explain the different tools and the important role rice has...More

The paddy field are not well maintained. However the infomation center is well maintained. Free entrance to this place. Good experience for children to see how the rice are produced.

I'll start by saying that we went in the monsoon season so maybe not as many tourists. Perhaps the place not viewed at its busiest best? Then again probably not really a must see magnet for many even in the high season. I'd say drop...More

Went for the route less travelled by and was so worth it. So much different from some of the overly touristy attractions in Langkawi. An ecotourist option and quiet but informative. One of the farmers saw me looking around the herb garden and took me...More

Me and my parents visited the rice museum by ourselves (not part of a tour)... and we felt rather like we shouldn't be there, there was no one about anywhere, lots of cats but no people at all. It is very poorly signed, we weren't...More

Hi You need to cross Pulau Payar from your plans, It is a full day trip and you do not have the time You would be best doing the cable car and Oriental Village at the same time. Not sure where you are staying as to what would be a better plan for you as with your plan you are going from one side of the island to the other,

Going with 1 yr old baby and mum in 50s (5 Replies)
Hihi need help on the suitable places to go in langkawi. We have 3 adults and a 1 yr old baby. Staying 4 days 3 nights at meritus pelangi resort. Places that i've already out on my list: 1) Cable car 2) Rice museum 3) Boat tour - my mum is very interested in the boat tour but we are not sure if it would be safe for my baby 4) Seven wells waterfall - will the walk be too tedious? 5) Black sand beach - worth the trip? Thank you so much for the help!

An awful lot to do, in such a short time. As a Grandmother of 2, one year babies, I would suggest you delete the Boat Tour and the Seven wells falls from your itinerary. The Rice museum is almost opposite The Pelangi Resort - so no travelling involved. Relax and enjoy.......

Hi all, Made a very last minute decision few days ago to go Langkawi when i saw a good deal from MAS. We will be travelling next week for a 3 days trip. It's going to be challenging as i am bringing along 3 senior citizen and 2 children (5,7 yrs) and 1 infant (3 months).

Hi Your itinerary looks fine although it will depend on how mobile your wheelchair user is as to whether they will be able to go on the cable car and skybridge. You can leave the baby stroller at the entrance to the cable car. It will be safe there. The pasar malam on Wednesday evening is in Kuah Town and at the moment will be very interesting as there will be lots of buffets for Ramadan as people will be breaking their fast at that time. Flagging taxis down is against the law on the...More
