You'd think visiting a rice factory would be as boring as hell but it did not prove to be that way at all. The rice factory receives and cleans rice and they pack it for transportation. The rice is brought to the factory in bulk on long boats and is then removed and cleaned. The cleaning is done with machinery in a very dusty environment. Visitors to the factory can buy rice pancakes for lunch and they are delicious.
