It has attracted the attention of tourists from all over the world to Malaysia with LIMA being the highlight of their travels. Even locals are flocking to the beautiful island of Langkawi to check out the exhibition.

Jean-Paul Lardinois has expressed his disappointment as some of the visitors are very inconsiderate when it comes to taking care of the environment. He wrote in his post,
“We come from far away, and this is my third LIMA. You have a fantastic paradise island. I have no lesson to give but here is the trace after a few days. Monday there was nothing. It is not difficult to put everything in a plastic bag and put it in the trash. Everyday I saw some incivilities. Continue to destroy your paradise.”
Malaysians, we are better than this. You don’t have to do much. You just need to throw your rubbish in the designated place. Let’s take care of our beloved country together OK?
