What to Expect?

Sekinchan is one of the major rice producing regions in Malaysia. The paddy gallery, which is owned by PLS Group - a major player in the cultivation, processing, packaging and distribution of rice, is built within their rice mill and open to public.









Learn about Rice Cultivation

The entrance fee is RM 5.00 come with a 250g pack of rice!



Upon entering the Gallery, the visitors will be shown a short video clip lasting about 10 minutes. The video clip shows how paddy field was ploughed, how paddy seedlings were planted and how paddy was harvested. It was very informative and educational.





Visitors will then be greeted by a tour guide, who will proceed to guide visitors through the process of paddy plantation and their mechanized harvesting.









The visitor section of the rice mill has several pieces of agricultural machinery like rice transplanters. For those who wish to learn more about rice cultivation, Paddy Gallery (稻米展览馆) provides a more in-depth introduction.







Products

You can buy their staple product, Pearl Rice (珍珠米), at the factory. Also known as Japanese rice, their rice has a different and fuller texture.



Visitors can also sample desserts and snacks made of rice, that can be purchased from their shop (that visitors will be in after the tour).



The rice in Sekinchan is harvested twice a year – the middle of the year (around May and June) and the end of the year (around November and December). These are the best periods to visit the gallery. Sowing is done in between March and April as well as August and September. The paddy field is a vast expanse of green during sowing months and turns into a golden sea during the harvest period.

    Nice experience to visit this place. To learn by knowing how the rice is planted and processed. But I feel the fee of Rm5 to watch the video is not worth it even it come with a small 100g free rice. Inside the presentation they also promote their products. Perhaps the rm5 should come with complementary drink or foods.

    Very informative on how paddy ended as rice on our tables. Our guide ‘Moon’ was very obliging with our questions and photo opportunity is abundant both inside and outside of building.

    Compared to the Kedah Paddy Museum, this Gallery is more pro-active, friendlier & the toilets are much cleaner.

    Interesting little tour, could be made slightly longer with more detailed explanations but that's fine. Good range of grain products at reasonable prices. Unfortunately their little museum is upstairs so those with mobility issues will not be able to participate.

    Guy manning the cashier counter needs to learn to control crowd and insist customers on queueing up the right way. There were customers who came to the cashier from the other end and he still gave in to them and let them cut queue.

    It was ok. You pay an entrance fee of RM5 and you get a small bag of rice. They share the paddy planting process till rice. A very very short tour of their self claimed museum. Great for young kids.

    Everyone rushing to buy their signature rice.

    Came here second time after few years in between. Still a good and short education tour for family with school kids.

    A good place to shop for local rice and other products at very reasonable price. Plenty of parking next to the gallery.
