Pangkor Jety

Taxi around Pangkor Island
On 14 until 25 of June I have been to Pangkor Island for induction course. This is compulsory induction course in order to confirm my position as an educator in Politeknik. This induction course is full of seminar and at the end we have to seat for final exam.I just take this induction course as a positive thing. Besides I have met other educator from other Politeknik and Kolej Komuniti that increase my networking.

The best part is I spend 12 days in Pangkor Island, when there is free time we went around the island and do some activity. View the picture.

Pangkor is a popular place for weekend traveler because it is easily reach from Kuala Lumpur, it will take you only 3 hours ++++++ . If you coming from Kuala Lumpur use the North South Highway then turn to Slim River exits. The journey begin by using the old road, you will pass Sungkai, Bidor, Teluk Intan, Sitiawan and finally Lumut. The view from Teluk Intan to Sitiawan is beautiful you will see the no end paddy field and coconut plantation farm. “I have see coconut tree before but this is first time in my life I see the coconut plantation farm” You must view this coconut plantation farm.At Lumut you can take a ferry to Pulau Pangkor it will takes you about 30 minutes and cost only RM10 include return so keep your ferry ticket save.

Then you will reach the Pangkor Island there are many taxi here that will cost only RM 5 per person to reach your accommodation. The best place to stay is at Teluk Nipah, as this place will easily reach your needs or facilities. There are many affordable accommodations at Teluk Nipah. A walk away to convenient store, food stalls and souvenirs shop. Even if you want to do beach activity it just a walk away, you can do snorkeling, kayaking, island hopping, banana boat or ride on Jet Ski. However if you want a peace place with less facilities you can choose Teluk Dalam.When I was at Pangkor my accommodation was at Pasir Bogak. These places have only a few choices of accommodation and less convenient facilities compare to Teluk Nipah.
Usually they will bring you to Pulau Giam for snorkeling and it will cost you RM150 a boat for island hopping and snorkeling to that island. If you do snorkeling they will rent to you RM5 for a goggle.Pulau Pangkor is small island you can go around the island within 30 minutes by renting a motorcycle, car or bicycle.
Come and visit Pangkor it is small island. 2 days one night would be enough for your stay here and really suitable for weekend outing. If you not driving you can take a bus direct from Puduraya to Lumut and you can walk to the jetty is only a couple of meters.
