Before its closure there was actually a huge hole in the fence which was cut, and one could actually walk through onto the airport's property.

    These folks dont care, because they're here for 1-2 days max, and they move on to other greener pastures. They can ruin a good hobby for many local folks. Plenty of examples - closure of Merkeat Hill, double fencing around airport perimeter etc.
    bad attitude and behavior are equal opportunity and fair, they are contagious and no one race is inmune.

    I have witness so many different groups doing abhorable things while they shoot, but I will not stoop so low and say caucaian photographers are worst or local Singaporean Chinese are worst, or PRC Chinese are worst.

    Your statement is very bigoted, but I would not cast all your friends, family and ethnic group to be bigoted, but you only.

    Photographers have the rights to keep their location secrets and we as fellow photographers just respect it.

    What we can do is maybe show that we are genuinely interested and not to wreak havoc, this way we can gain someone's trust and therefore they MIGHT(big MIGHT!!) share their secret spot.

    Those who shoot nature all the more should protect their locations considering how 90% of the photographers act and behave.

    Cheers, glad to have a label

    That aside, I'm not arguing that foreigners are bad or good, I'm giving an example of things we have witnessed before. In any community, there are likely to be bad apples to ruin the good reputation of the group.
