It is sad that Langkawi, a popular destination for local and foreign tourists, is dirty.
As a regular visitor to the island, Awang is charmed by its beauty. That is the reason that Awang feels very upset with the situation which the Minister of Tourism, Datuk Seri Dr. Ng Yen Yen herself, commented.
The island that has become our pride due to its tremendous development from the effort of our former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, is now dirty?
If the claim found to be true, what is the action of the local authority? What does the State government has to say? What about the Langkawi Development Authority and the tourism industry? For the people of Langkawi, what are your feelings? Do you want the island to be dirty?
If foreigners really love the island, the locals should love it even more.
As such, let everybody – the government, people and private sector – come in concert to clean up the island and make the cleanliness culture as top priority.
If tourists run away to islands in Thailand due to the filthiness, don’t blame anybody, but ourselves. Langkawi, is not like other places because it has its own uniqueness. So keep it up.
Awang— steadfast to cleanliness
Anaklangkawi :- We are stating to get famous for the wrong reason.. Wake up langkawian.
