Development on the hill leaves its ugly scars. This is the work of Foo Ah Kow and his boys. This is the original contractor that the developer commissioned to build homes for Pantai Hill. He will often appear neutral and approachable. But looks can be deceiving. He has a ‘God Father’ persona on the hill. So, dear visitors, please if you care for this nice place, bring this rubbish issue up with your resorts and if you do see this white-haired man – Foo Ah Kow riding his bike around, please say something to him.
Several people have caught resort workers dispose resort trash into the river banks. This area is outside the Pantai Hill gates, but greatly demonstrates how if unchecked – the tourism impact on the hill can quickly erode the pristine environment.
Take a closer look at the rubbish dump by the river.
UPDATE: This section of the river has been clean on 31st May 2015 by Pantai Hill residents who volunteered for the community cleanup. Thank you to those who gave their energy and time. <<Read the full report here>>
