Sekinchan is a small town located at about 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur (after Klang-Kuala Selangor-Tanjung Karang).
Paddy Fields – Green or Yellow Backdrop
Sekinchan, which literally means “village suitable for plantation” in Chinese 适耕莊, lives up to its name as almost its entire landscape is covered by wide and well-irrigated paddy fields. This can be one of your stops but make sure you go at the right time of the year to get the scenery, mood and feel that you want. You can drive right beside the paddy fields on the roads connecting the a small village (Site A) located in the center of the Sekinchan paddy fields.

For views of a fishing village and boats drop by Bagan in Sekinchan. This fishing village is located along the river and a small seaport. You will find some new shop houses which are mainly seafood restaurants where the crew can have a delicious fresh seafood lunch.
Pantai Redang (Redang Beach), a hidden beach in Sekinchan is worth a visit. In fact, it is very near the seafood restaurants area at Bagan, so you can go to Redang Beach after a nice seafood meal. You can take an unbeaten track along the coastal line, away from the jetty, on the way you will find a nice and secluded spot for birding, especially egrets, waders, and terns. There is a Tree house at Redang Beach Sekinchan with swings and hammocks made from fishing net. Go there for the sunset shot, it will be amazing.
