My Sadly Negative Feedback- Especially To Those In charge of the Park

Though Lata Tembakah Recreational Forest is popular not only among the local population, including from outside Terengganu, sadly the even with the best of nature environment there are also disadvantages and limitations. Survey authors found, there are signs that lies hidden in the branches and leaves, while there are signs of the available word from sign has come apart are a sore eyes, and also showing signs of decline and broken.

Public toilets are also a problem that should be addressed by management Lata Tembakah. This is because, when viewed from outside the public found the perfect toilet. However, when viewed from a short distance and when to get into, not only the public toilets do not have doors. There is a water pump that does not work when the water pipe is not connected to a water pump involved. In addition to the condition with no sink pipes and absence of piped water supply to the toilet causing the toilet is no longer regarded as a toilet but a 'haunted house'.
As such, it is appropriate management Lata Tembakah immediately repair public toilets and changing place before there was among the visitors who made waterfall as a 'release' urine and feces would pollute the water flow as a cause of the spread of germs, salmonella and e-coli.
