There are plenty of things to do in Sekinchan and below are just some of our favourites:
Make your way to Redang Beach to make some wishes at the Sekinchan Wishing Tree. With thousands of red ribbons hanging from branches containing people’s individual wishes, you can bet that it’s also a great place for an Instagram-worthy photo shoot. If you’re interested to have your wish on the tree, you can make a small donation to the nearby temple before you get the red ribbon to write your wish on.
There are also other places where you can take a picture without having to pay! Sekinchan is famous for their vast paddy fields and some of them provide the perfect background, with clear blue skies and verdant fields to invoke envy from friends!
Sekinchan is a popular spot for kite flying as the winds are quite strong. You can purchase kites from the local vendors and get started on learning how to fly one!
Visit the fishing village to witness first-hand the lives of the local fishermen at Fisherman’s Wharf.
