    Interesting and charming
    Interesting and gentle experience, learning about rice production. The paddy fields are lovely to look at, and there are water buffalo. And the buildings gentle to wander around. The on site cafe is a little more expensive than other places, but the food is good and the setting is charming. The museum itself is air conditioned. The buildings could do with a lick of paint.

    Interesting working museum with excellent interactive elements
    We visited the Laman Padi rice museum as part of a cruise ship excursion. They opened up the museum just for the tour groups as otherwise it would have been closed (due to it being Christmas Day). The indoor museum was just okay, and our tour guide gave us a talk on the process of growing rice, however when we went outside the visit became much more interesting as we had the opportunity to get interactive which made our stop here a lot of fun. The local guide at the museum showed us the various stages of rice growing, how it was planted and harvested, how they extract the rice 'padi' from the plants by bashing it, etc. We also saw them demonstrate how to cut open and grate coconuts (including a chance to drink the coconut juice straight out of the fruit) and we got to see some of the water buffaloes and the national flower of Malaysia. I wasn't expecting much from the visit but the interactive nature of the outside tour made this one of the most fun stops we made on our various cruise excursions. Well worth considering if visiting Langkawi.

    Fascinating
    Fascinating to see how the rice is grown and cultivated. The staff are friendly and explain the process very well. Also nice to see the Water Buffalo. Very hot in the afternoon so best to visit early morning

Thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Laman Padi fields in Langkawi. Our tour guide was super friendly and informative, she showed us the stages of rice cultivation, how to properly cut open and grate coconuts, the beautiful herb gardens and took us to see the water buffalos up close! We were given a very hands on experience, planting rice crops ourselves, using the traditional tools and we drank from fresh cut coconuts! Would definitely recommend paying a visit to this beautiful open plan museum if u are in Langkawi!

Lovely tranquil place. Excellent small museum, informative and interesting. The surrounding padi fields with water buffalo were very attractive as well as the herb garden. The area was beautifully maintained. One of the male employees was super helpful and took time to explain the various herb plants and let us smell them. His enthusiasm made the visit all the more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.

On my way to Pelangi for carrot cake and coffee I passed this abandonded looking mud field and wondered why it stood next to a luxury resort. It might once have appeared fine with the scarecrows standing in the rice field but now it seems only depressing.

Pretty disappointed with this. Looks like govt has spent a lot of money building this but they have failed to make it a success or even maintain it. The whole site lies pretty dormant. You walk in and nobody is interested, nobody to give info or anything. Only thing available is the eatery where they serve food and drinks. The paddi fields, though not that many, are somewhat interesting but with no info they are mystery. Perhaps they can charge an entry fee and do guided tours with food sampling.
Oh, beware there are some nasty ants at the far end. You step in that area and these things invade you feet and everything attached to them. I am back in the hotel and I still have bugging me.

It's located at the end of Chenang Beach. Nearby are Pelangi Hotel and Casa Del Mar, two 5-star hotels. The Laman Padi has timber-structure accommodation surrounded by small paddy fields that qallow you to see the paddy planting and harvesting activities without leaving your room.

To eat at the special place as in the photo, you have to pre booked it and give some deposit or else on the day you come they wont allowed you to sit there & tell you its already been reserved. U can only sit at the normal dining table. Came here because i wanted to experience some "makan di tepi sawah feel" . For the price of food, its a bit pricey because the portion is not big. Btw photo & reality will not always same. So don't give high expectation. The taste is ok.

The restaurant next to the Laman Paddi attraction is nicely located in The rice paddies directly at the main road but can transport you to the Kampung!
Unfortunately the menu is mostly not available. The service is terrible. Is it because of the long Covid pause? The food is Malaysian Nasi Lemak . Looks good but we did not try it. Could not wait that long. Just getting our drinks was complicated enough.
The staff is friendly but obviously not enough of them.
