A typical view of the village in Sekinchan.

Sekinchan is a small town located in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. It is located along the coastal Federal Route 5 between the towns of Sabak Bernam and Tanjung Karang.

Apart from being a lively fishing village, Sekinchan is one of the major rice producing areas of Malaysia. The vast, well-irrigated and organized paddy fields around Sekinchan produce one of the highest yields of rice in the country.

Sekinchan is often visited for its fresh seafood. It also draws diners from Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh. There are some rice millers in the area where locally produced rice can be purchased.

"The Seeds of Life", a local Chinese drama, is set there. [1]
