Activities at Agrotourism Homestay Kampung Sireh

I don’t really know what I was doing. I am proud of the end product, though.

Riding on tractor

We were taken around the village to checkpoints on a tractor. Nice ride. We got a good view of the surrounding area. The best part was we wished “Selamat Pengantin Baru” loudly,all together, to all houses that have decorative tents in their lawn. It’s so nice traveling with fellow crazies. Haha.

Stay in traditional homes

Traditional homes were made with tree logs that were hand-cut by villagers themselves when they opened the village long time ago. The house remains mostly original to preserve the technological product on display.

Learn about traditional paddy planting, tree log cutting methods and herbal plants

Homestay Pak Ahmad at Kampung Sungai Sireh preserves some traditional tools and machines. There are also a lot of herbal plants around the house. We learned about them by answering quiz.

Fishing and catching catfish

What is the difference, you ask? You fish with a rod. You catch with bare hands. I didn’t do it. But it looks so fun. If you like mud and being wet, this activity is a must try. Later, you can clean yourself by bathing in ‘palong’, man-made clean water drain with pipes to control water to paddy squares.
