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.

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

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

If you're in Langkawi, go and have a look at this local museum. Nothing groundbreaking, but the staff are friendly and you'll meet the locals!
