    When arriving in Langkawi

    When you arrive in Langkawi there are a few things you need to know. Whether you come by plane or ferry. First of all, Pantai Cenang / Pantai Tengah area is the best if you want to experience beach, restaurants, bars and shops. There are lots of hotels here ranging from lowest budget to splurge […]

    Walking up to Gunung Raya

    Yes this is a nice but quite hard walk. It´s 4287 steps to the top and most of them are upwards (a few ones going down before the final stretch up.) Gunung Raya is the highest mountain on Langkawi. Start in Kampung Bukus (Book Village) and follow the path. The park in this area is […]

    Nest Rooftop, Langkawi

    The Nest is the first roof top bar in Langkawi and the view from up here is amazing. You can see Pantai Cenang from a totally different view. Watching the sunset from here is popular and you need to be out in time to get a good place to sit. They serve food, inspired from […]

Its time for recycling

It is time for recycling in Malaysia now since the  gorvernment has enforced a new law. That means that everybody has to separate their trash and recycle it appropriately.

Beacuse much of this information never reaches the people of Langkawi the SW corp  (governmental company with the resposibilities.) has started an educational programme that means they are walking around in the kampungs (villages, neighbourhoods) and teaching people how to do it.

In Langkawi we don´t have our own waste bin but communal ones standing by the road, everybody is free to use them. And they are used, for everything.  They are also out in the school and teaches the children how to separate their waste.

Most of the people are also burning their trash instead of throwing them, that means they are burning everything and unfortunately that is polluting the air quite a lot. (And in Malaysia the people dying from lung diseases are much higher than for example Sweden, but that´s a whole other post). The burning starts usually in the afternoon and the traditional reason why people are doing this is because it keeps the mosquitoes away.

We have one incinerator on Langkawi but it is not working very well. There is another one to be built with start from 1st of june.

Supposedly there is also 23 stations where you can go and separate your waste, but I have never seen one. Now I will look for them tho, maybe I will spot one..

In a ultimate Langkawi their should be no burning at all, maybe just some garden waste sometimes and all trash will be separated into different binges. I am however keeping my expectations low tho and hopes for that the plastic and other dangerous burning will stop.

I am pleased however that this is an issue for the goernment of Malaysia, this is important.

  1. I think every country round the world must do this. Even in Sweden we have to improve. Too much is still going unsorted in the dustbins.

    • That is true. to take care of our own rubbish is important, try to make as little as possible and then make sure as much of it is possible to recycle as possible.

Rasism, personliga kränkningar/påhopp och falska email gör att jag inte publicerar din kommentar. Älskar snälla kommentarer och sakliga diskussioner ;)

    Jag sålde nästan allt jag ägde och befinner mig nu på resande fot. Kommer att leva på sparade pengar, försöka ta ett digitalt jobb, förhoppningsvis och njuta av livet som det ska njutas.
    JAG har hoppat av ekorrhjulet och försöker leva livet så som det ska göras. Njutningsfullt, livfullt och utan en massa saker som tynger.
    Har du frågor är du välkommen att maila mig!

    Just nu är jag i Langkawi, Malaysia. Har varit i Bangkok, Dan Nok, Hong Kong, Koh Lipe och Vietnam sen jag kom hit. Nästa resa går till Koh Lipe.

    Hade en fantastisk resa planerad till Laos - Thailand - Cambodia - Vietnam men den får vänta till ett annat år.
