"field of the burned rice" Pulau Langkawi Tourist Trap Tip by call_me_rhia
Pulau Langkawi Tourist Traps: 23 reviews and 39 photos
The field of burnt rice is the biggest overstatement of the island. To get there you have to pass a long row of stalls selling you a vast array of tacky souvenirs, and once you get past them all you are left wondering where the field is... There was a stunning house there, so I figured it would be at the back of the house - only to be stopped (kindly) by the owner who pointed me to the field.
Well, the fild is not really a field... more like a very tiny patch of old rice paddy that people burned when the Siamese attacked the island in 1821 and where burned rice still "comes out". The highlight is a 1-foot square box with some burnt rice in it and a plaque.
Unique Suggestions: Take a look at the house right by the field: it is possibly the most beautiful Malay house you will see in Langkawi.
