There’s a huge reason as to why many people encourage media platforms not to promote hidden gems and natural attractions. The reason behind it? Humans.

Once a hidden gem goes viral, people start flocking to the location, leaving behind damage and destruction.

An example of this is the recent incident from the Sekinchan Paddy Field, also known as the rice bowl of Selangor due to the location having one of the highest yields of rice in our country. With that being said, why would anyone deliberately step on the paddy for the sake of a good picture?

The Inforoadblock Facebook page recently shared images of people standing inside the paddy field to take photos, literally causing the paddy to be squashed underneath their feet. They wrote, “Even though Sekinchan is a tourist attraction spot, don’t damage other people’s paddy.

In the images showcased, people can be seen standing inside the paddy field through a path created after they had stepped on and damaged the paddy plants.

Netizens criticised them for being selfish

Netizens have since condemned the action, emphasising that the paddy field and plants are part of people’s livelihoods, hence,  they shouldn’t be damaged for the sake of pictures.

“The right of the people there, the place where they create a livelihood and you guys do that. We all know that stupidity is free, so they hogged all of it,” said a user.

Another commented, “Stupid. Why are you destroying other people’s livelihoods? There are (designated) paths there, right? If you want to enter, use those paths. Want to destroy other people’s livelihoods for what? Because of monkeys like this is why others will not be allowed there.”

So, please do be mindful whenever visiting a tourist spot, just avoid any sort of action which could cause damage to the location. Be respectful of the space and create memories while being considerate.


What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments section.
