Rice Garden Museum in Langkawi

Pantai Cenang Attractions

Rice Garden Museum

The Rice Garden Museum is a gallery in Laman Padi with a collection of artefacts, photos, charts and tools on the history of rice cultivation in Langkawi. Set in Pantai Cenang, opposite Bon Ton Resort, it is divided into the Heritage Gallery, Paddy Gallery, Herb Garden and Garden of Variety.

Opened in June 1999, the Rice Garden Museum is a good place to spend an afternoon. The Heritage Gallery has a series of displays on the sequence of activities pertaining to rice planting; meanwhile the Paddy Gallery is a viewing deck with breathtaking views of a multi-tiered rooftop rice garden. The Herb Garden and Garden of Variety sections are places where you can actually try your hand at rice farming.


Laman Padi’s other attractions include a unique floating rice garden (which makes for great souvenir photos!) plus there is a traditional rice village and a very pretty herbal garden. In an effort to attract more tourists and to increase awareness of rice planting activities, Laman Padi hosts periodic rice-based food demonstrations, festivities and themed exhibitions.

Situated just 10 minutes away from the airport and within the vicinity of the island's popular beach resorts, the complex houses a popular restaurant called Laman Ria, which serves up traditional Malay recipes and kuih-kuih (local delicacies) which use rice as the main ingredient. For unique take-home souvenirs, check out the rice-themed handicrafts on display in the gift shop.
