    Can someone give an update about the recent situation in/around Bukittingi concerning the smog/haze due to the Riau fires?

    I intend to visit this area for 4 days starting from friday(march 21st). Would you recommend this? Is Padang airport (still) open (I will arrive by plane)?

    Thanks answering,

    My better half is on Nias at the moment (a little to the north and offshore) from Bukittingi and she says no smog or haze whatsoever. She was in Bukit Lawang earlier in the week and said it was a bit hazy, but not mental bad.

    Hope that helps.
