Day 1. Part 1.

The journey to Pangkor takes about 3 to 4 hours from Kuala Lumpur.


#1 somewhere along the highway for a toilet break, but I can't remember where this place is.

From Kuala Lumpur to Lumut is about 250 km. Upon arrival in Lumut, you can see a ferry service counter there. Lumut is one of the smaller towns of the state of Perak and it is also the gateway to Pangkor Island.


#2


#3


#4 Lumut Jetty Terminal.

To reach Pangkor Island, you will have to take a ferry from Lumut jetty.


#5 The return fare costs RM10 per person.


#6


#7 That's Ralph walking towards the yellow ferry with my trolley luggage.


#8 The ferry was quite comfortable, with air conditioning and the journey took about 30 minutes. Smiley

Note: Get off only at the second stop!


#9 We have finally arrived! Smiley


#10 The fishing settlement.

At the entrance of Pangkor you can rent bicycles and motorbikes for going around the island (you can hire them at the hotels too). But you can also hire a taxi.


#11 These vans are taxis. All taxis here are pink!

We took a taxi to Nipah Bay and it cost us RM12.

We stayed in Seagull Beach Village Resort on the first night and we had to stay in another resort on the second night. I'll save that for another post.

Soon after we checked-in, settled down and freshened up, we went looking for food near the beach. I was looking forward to having a meal at the beach; a nice seat facing the sea to enjoy the nice view and meal.


#12 Teluk Nipah (Nipah Bay) on a Friday afternoon.


#13 Nipah Beach.

I had seen many other beaches; I thought the beaches here would be the same as any other beach. The Pangkor beaches proved me wrong! Again, I'll save that for another post because I took A LOT of pictures here.


#14


#15


#16


#17 The Tom Yam was superb!

Smiley It was a really delicious meal, or maybe we thought so because we're so hungry?

Tips: Do not swim right after eating. Ralph did this once and became very sick. Smiley


#18


#19 Relax and have fun because that's what the beach lifestyle is all about!


#20 “The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach”


Next post: Where to stay in Pangkor or Nipah Beach? Smiley

Hi Monica,
Nice pictures, I'm sure you have enjoyed your holiday escapes fully and stil thinking abou the beautiful moments there. I've been to Pangkor when I was little, and now with too many Meow2 I have to chance to travel. Sooner or later the rescued cats got to go.. leaving only my cats, still many though, then perhaps one by one to pass on to only good friends and good homes

Come visit me, I have a surprise for you dear.
