Just got back from Pangkor Island. We have never set foot there and on the 27th of December 2010 at 2:45pm were our very first step on the island. We drove to Lumut on PLUS highway and exited via Bidor then through Teluk Intan and finally to the jetty in Lumut. The journey took almost 3 hours. In between Setiawan to Teluk Intan we passed by padi fields and coconut trees. It has been quite sometime since we saw such sceneries.

Reaching the jetty we boarded the boat which looks like the Columbia space shuttle. Its free sitting and some have to stand since some seats were occupied by bagages. But luckily it is just a 15 minutes cruise to the island.
Reaching the island we were greeted by pink taxis which are the main public transport that whisked us off to our temporary lodging, a service apartment . We gave it a 2 out of five stars

In the evening we went to checkout the beach which was just a 5 minutes walk from where we were staying. The water was murky but still a ok to swim. Along the roadside there are convenience store, burger stall, `goreng pisang' stall and a few food stalls. In other word,you won't starve to death if you are castaway here.
Got to pen off for now but in the next entry are photos of our boat trip and island trip around the island.
