Haze in Kuala Lumpur 2013 Pictures
The haze is back again in Kuala Lumpur. It has been an annual issue since more than 10 years ago. The effects of the Indonesia’s Sumatra can be seen in Peninsula Malaysia and Singapore. While Singapore hitting their breaking record of PSI 400, there is no indicators of PSI level in Kuala Lumpur.

This morning, visibly the haze has worsened. From Sungai Besi, it is hard to see the beautiful landscape of the city. It is as if the whole city has disappeared from sight. Bear in mind this is not the 400 PSI level yet so you can imagine how badly the situation in Singapore right now.
As I travelled from the MEX highway, the visibility is getting better when I get closer to the city. There are no indications on whether the conditions going to improve but from the reports from Singapore, it won’t be.
Singapore has sent troops to try to control the situation in Sumatra. However, the damage has done.
Malaysia and Singapore Tourism Boards spent millions a year to promote their countries but it will be useless if they can’t stop the haze from Indonesia every year!
