05.19.2008 · Posted in Malaysia Attraction

The only way to get to Pangkor Island is thru Lumut Jeti Terminal.

The moment you reached Pangkor Jetty, you’ll be greeted by all those people who offered car rental services. If you are looking for a car to rent, they will be your best resources. Do bargain with them to get a cheaper rent!

Usually the car provided is NOT luxurious, but it will to do the job for you to explore Pangkor Island. I’ve rent a car for RM 70.00, fuel up the car with RM 5.00 and manage to explore Pangkor Island for 4 hours.

If you know how to ride a motorcycle, you can rent it for RM 30.00 for the whole day.

Pangkor Island is a small place, not so much development here. Tourist activity will be the main attraction here.

From Pangkor Jetty we stopped by at the Teluk Raja Bayang Mosque performed out solat here. Teluk Raja Bayang Mosque is one of the two mosques available in Pangkor Island.

We then drive to Dutch Fort (Kota Belanda). The history of Dutch Fort started as early as 1680. Back then this was where the Dutch have placed their army force. Panglima Kulup our great hero that has freed Pangkor from the Dutch.

Nearby the Dutch Fort is one of the largest Batu Bersurat (inscribed stone) from the past history. Unfortunately it was not well kept as there are graffiti all over.

Along the way to Teluk Cempedak, there is a Fish Factory, making all kinds of seafood stuffs from fish, crab, prawn and etc. If stop by, do buy some fish crackers to take home.

We bought our souvenirs here in Teluk Nipah. There are plenty of souvenirs shops here. It’s just next to the beach, people come here to swim and enjoy the water sport. The water sport equipments are provided with minimal fees.
