Letter to the Langkawi Gazette

I want to tell you about my adventures with Tanjung Rhu.
One day i came there 5.30 and i was not allowed to go on the beach.
After 5 your not permitted to go on the beach??
What about the nice sunset??

Other time I went with my daughter and children about two o'clock.
We went on the beach and I was shocked to see the fence.
We sad down and then this guard came and said we have to move.
We were sitting about 5 meter next to the fence and this guy said we can not because we need space when there is a emergency at the resort beach.
So they take the beach and turned it into a prison.
