About Pangkor

Pangkor Island is a popular island destination for local and Singapore holiday makers also one of the most enchanting islands in the world today. It gets extremely busy during school and public holidays. One operator on the island reported that approximately 2000 holidaymakers were left without a place to stay on the island during the Chinese New Year holiday period.. Of course, many people assume that there's plenty of available rooms on the island and that reservations weren't necessary.Pangkor Island is located just off the west coast of Perak in Peninsula Malaysia.Pangkor is a 40 minutes ferry ride from Lumut, a coastal town which is about 84 km from Ipoh in the northern part of Peninsula Malaysia.

Things to do

Beaches-Pangkor's two popular beach areas of Pasir Bogak and Teluk Nipah offer sun and sea enthusiasts activities like scuba diving, snorkelling, wind-surfing and fishing. While Pasir Bogak is quite developed, Teluk Nipah still retains its kampung, or village, atmosphere.

Dutch Fort-The Dutch attempted to monopolise the lucrative tin trade but despite the presence of the fort, smuggling of tin continued. Disgruntled local leaders frequently attacked the fort which eventually led the Dutch to abandon the area in 1690. Today, the Museum Department has reconstructed the Fort and it stands in its original foundations.

Getting to Pangkor

By Ferry
The closest mainland settlement is the town of Lumut, an attractive, laid-back place about 7km away. From the Lumut pier, ferries depart regularly to different parts of Pangkor Island.
