Pangkor Island

The perfect getaway

 

 

 

Pangkor Island is fast becoming one of the most popular beach holiday getaways amongst Malaysians. This phenomenon has led to Pangkor's unprecedented organic growth seen in recent years.

Pangkor has a local population of approximately 35,000 people and the main business activities would be fishing, seafood processing and of late, tourism related services.

With the upgrading of the Ipoh - Lumut trunk road, travel times between both cities have been reduced to 45 minutes from what use to take 90 minutes. The construction of the coastal highway linking Banting in Klang to Taiping in Perak would ease traffic on the North South Highway and half travel times from Kuala Lumpur to Lumut.

Pangkor Island's beauty lies in its idlyic less-develop state whereby city dwellers visit regularly as a sanctuary for relaxation. Be it jungle trekking, cycling or simply strolling along its pristine beaches, Pangkor's mesmerising experience can only be told by those whom have visited here.
