On my recent trip to Malaysia, my husband and I went to Pangkor Island, which is a small island in the north west coast of Malaysia. The island is about 300km to the north of Kuala Lumpur and requires a drive or bus ride to Sitiawan, followed by a ferry crossover to get to the island. Its slight remoteness makes it a less popular tourist destination compared to other islands in Malaysia, such as Penang and Langkawi. But on the plus side, this means that the island is not overpopulated with tourists, which makes your whole holiday experience a bit more exclusive.
We spent four leisurely days there, doing nothing but lazing by the pool, walking by the beach, eating and then more eating! We didn’t venture out of the resort too much as we enjoyed the idleness, however there are things you can do on the island like going hiking in the forest, visiting a Dutch fort and Chinese temple and wandering around Pangkor town.
Do visit my flickr site for photos of Pangkor. Happy viewing!
