teluk batik in dire straits

Once pristine Teluk Batik near Lumut is now a sorry sight of abandoned/uncompleted structures surrounding it...and on an even more scary note more strange structures are haphazardly on the way up ! The wonderful pictures captured here of the beautiful natural landscape do not reflect the actual state of affairs here as uncollected rubbish/broken fencing/structures lining the beaches is now proving a terrible eyesore , especially after a packed weekend of tidak apathy holiday makers.

the tourism unfriendly rude sign on the hillslope glaringly claiming the owner's land status

Visit this place soon and see for yourself the still charming albeit ageing & deteriorating beauty and hopefully help bring attention to the right peopke to save the place from further decline !
