Situated just off the west coast of Perak in Peninsular Malaysia is one of the most enchanting islands you'll ever come across.
Pangkor has for centuries enthralled visitors with her charming beauty. In days of old, the island was the refuge of seamen who sailed through the Straits of Malacca. Pangkor's many idyllic bays made it the perfect stopover. Pirates, adventures, merchants and soldiers of fortune sought the peace and tranquility she had to offer.
In stark contrast to Malaysia's fast-paced progress, Pangkor remains a haven for these seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Soak up the sun on her golden beaches. Catch sight of fishing boats rocking gently on calm blue waters. Get closer to nature as you trek through virgin jungles. Or experience the warm, friendly hospitality of her people. Whichever you choose, Pangkor awaits you.
For centuries, Pangkor has been a welcome stopover fro weary sea travelers, pirates and adventurers. At one time even ruled by European conquerors; yet, as if oblivious to the ravages of war and conquest, her natural wonders have remained unscarred, perhaps to conquer your heart. Pangkor today is a thriving tourist destination that somehow does not reflect its turbulent past. Visitors will be charmed by the serenity of its fishery villages, small but bustling towns and splendid selection of world class holiday resort.
