The quiet island of Langkawi with its explicit nature still is plunged in rustic beauty.The vast expanse of paddy fields bears witness to the fact that rice cultivation is the oldest surviving industry in Malaysia. The Rice Field Museum of Langkawi bears to the past days of the land.
The scare-crows, the buffaloes, and the birds that you can find here give you a picture of the simple rustic life when agriculture was the main profession of the people.
The Field of Burnt Rice
Located near the Langkawi Airport, the Field of Burnt Rice is a place that you would find in every map of Langkawi. The story as known is that the place was originally an old rice field. Datuk Karma Jaya in 1821 ordered the field to be burnt so that no paddy could go to the Siamese who were involved in a war with the people of Langkawi. Locals believe that during the heavy rains some amount of burnt rice come out of the ground.
