Sekinchan

Sekinchan is a small town located in Sabak Bernam, in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. It is about a one and a half hours drive from Kuala Lumpur by the coastal road.

Besides being a fishing village, Sekinchan is also a rice producing area. There are also rice millers in the area and locally produce rice are available for purchase.

The harvesting of rice is done around the month of June. It was at this time that I make a trip to Sekinchan on a sunday morning with a group of photographers from the Kuala Lumpur Photography Club.

We arrived at Sekinchan at around 10am (8am would have been more ideal for photography) and everyone of us starts clicking away.

There were also quite a lot of visitors. Some of them would rent bicycles and cycle around the rice fields. Visiting Sekinchan can be good family fun and educational for the children.

Nearby the rice fields are some vegetable farms where you can buy their produce. There is also a chinese temple, worth a visit just to have some refreshments after all the activities from the hot morning.
