A Road Trip to Sekinchan

Ayden learned about Sekinchan fishing village and paddy field recently in class. He told us so much about it and asked a lot of questions. We have never been to Sekinchan so we decided to make a half-day trip to give Ayden a ‘lawatan sambil belajar’ experience.

Sekinchan is about an hour drive away from PJ. The best time to visit Sekinchan paddy field is March to May or September to November during pre-harvest season.

When I bring the boys out, we make sure of these two:

1) To go to open air places with minimal humans only. So our outings always have a back-up plan in case there are many people at the place we go, we’ll switch to Plan B and head somewhere else.

2) No dining in. I pack sandwiches instead.

We arrived Sekinchan about 4pm. First stop was the Fishing Village. There wasn’t anyone in the fishing village so we spent some time there. Ayden wanted to stay longer because there was a cute puppy hanging out with us. After that we drove to Pantai Redang where the temple and Wishing Tree is located. 

The temple and Wishing Tree is empty so we took our time lingering there to take pictures. 

After that we walked to Pantai Redang. There are people at the beach but not many and they were all scattered around. We chose a spot without people, take pictures and left for the paddy field.

We stayed at the paddy field until sunset and had our sandwiches there because at the paddy field is empty with no humans.
