I've got a day in Langkawi late June 2010 and plan to take the cable car + skwalk activity there. Lately I've read about the smoke haze there that comes across from the forest fires in Sumatra. I note that they tend to occur more in August. Have these fires been a problem since 2005 as I don't see any news reports on them?
Has anyone been there in June and experienced haze? I read that the pollution index was 500 back in August 2005.
