Laman means field and Padi stands for rice in Malay. So Laman Padi essentially means rice field. This vast open complex comprises of number of rice fields, herb gardens and galleries or museums where the process and evolution of rice cultivation & harvesting in Langkawi is exhibited. So if you like agro tourism, lush greenery and want to spend some time with the nature and at the same time understand about how rice is cultivated which is the primary product of export for Malaysia, then this will be a great place to visit and spend couple of hours or even more. Laman Padi is located in Pantai Cenang and opposite to Meritus Pelangi. It was established in June 1999. From the beach area, it's an easy walking distance. Once you enter through the gate, you will see signs to different sections of the complex including a Heritage Gallery, a Paddy Gallery and so on. But before you start visiting the various sections, ensure that you get hold of a guide. It is free. Although the places looks virtually empty without any soul, there are actually very knowledgeable and friendly guides available in the complex who will take you around and explain almost everything about the place. Unless you get a guide, you will probably wander about aimlessly and come out without having appreciating the offerings of this place. There is car park inside. There are also toilet facilities here. Laman Padi has two nice restaurants surrounded by lush greenery. One is Laman Ria, a restaurant run by a Japanese couple serving excellent Japanese, Malay, Chinese and Thai food, and the other is Jimmy's Cafe serving nice Asian cuisine including tandoor (made in earthen oven) items. There is also a Spa inside which uses the fresh ingredients from the herbal garden and offers different types of massages and treatments.

Even so, there's an attractive swimming pool, a west-facing cocktail deck, a wonderful restaurant serving Asian fusion cuisine and a lounge-bar set in a heritage Chinese shophouse. All in all, it's a wonderfully romantic hideaway.
