It's a reasonable sized site with paddy fields, gardens and an indoor museum. The place is looking rather run down with peeling paint, cluttered gardens/flowerbeds and a generally tired look and feel. The indoor museum is interesting and gives good explanations on the history of rice production. I did not come across any staff that were there to help answer... More

Very interesting tour of approx 1 hour. Must have a guide to properly understand. Great history on how the indigenous grew wetland rice and how things have developed.

We were staying at the hotel across the road and decided to take a wander in, we went to buy tickets at the counter and enquired about the guided tour which was advertised. Unfortunately you needed to book the day before for this . We decided to wander through anyway and purchased tickets with a map of the complex. Parts... More

Actually not very worth for a visit, just a 5 mins tour, and the signage is too confusing, we went into the resort check in counter rather than the museum. Everything is just see no touch, no interaction, guess sekinchan one is better. the exit door even broken and can't close properly.

Very boring! Not informative and no one explains a thing! Complete waste of time but it's sad because it could be good.

This is an average place to visit in Langkawi. I think there are much better options available to do in Langkawi that one could opt for.
