It has been almost 2 months smog disaster hit the island of Sumatra and Borneo. There's a lot of efforts are being made by the government to get rid of them. However, it seems like it takes longer to overcome the haze this year.
Early September this year, I had the opportunity to enter the thick smog in the city of Jambi. To arrive in this town, I had to overland for 12 hours from Bengkulu because no plane can land at the airport of Sultan Taha, Jambi. Another option, 7 hours from Palembang which time flight status still 50% can set off or cancel, 12 hours from the city of Padang with status 100% safe and Batam 5 hours with the status of 50% can be set off or cancel anytime.
