PLEASANT URBAN LANDSAPE


Indonesia's kampungs (areas of housing occupied by the poorer people) are often pretty, traffic-free places full of flowers and happy people.

The kampungs should be preserved and improved (with the provision of clean water for example), rather than being demolished to make way for golf courses, luxury houses for the elite, shopping malls.

Venice would not be Venice if St Marks Square was replaced by a shopping mall.

Fes would not be Fes if its old town was demolished to make way for golf courses.

Indonesia would not be Indonesia if its prettier kampungs were bulldozed to make way for luxury houses for the elite.
