Pangkor, Manjung · 55 hotels available
Pangkor is indeed one of the most exotic places in Malaysia, where traditional fishing settlements and modern resorts co-exist as one on this island. This mix presents their visitors a rare chance to live near and observe this fisherman in action while enjoying the simple, relaxing holiday back at the resort facing the clear, blue sea.
Its tranquil beaches are the main tourist attraction that brings in the people. Pangkor's two popular beach areas of Pasir Bogak and Teluk Nipah offer sun and sea enthusiasts activities like scuba-diving, snorkelling, wind-surfing and fishing. While Pasir Bogak is quite developed, Teluk Nipah still retains its kampung or village atmosphere. Teluk Ketapang or Turtle Bay still receives turtles on their egg-laying pilgrimages, which is surely something you wouldn’t want to miss.
Foo Lin Kong Temple is an eye-catching Taoist temple, built at the base of Pangkor hill, encircled by decorative gardens and fishponds. Its fashionable structure makes it distinct from further areas on the island. It has been designed with stones and rocks in a very natural manner. On the roof are carved the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac and there is a miniature form of the Great Wall of China behind the temple. There is an adequate amount of turtles and fish in the ponds around the temple that add to its scenic splendor.
Dutch Fort is sited about three kilometers south of Pangkor Town at Teluk Gudrang and was structured in 1670, becoming one of Pangkor’s most ancient island attraction. It lays evidence to long-reigning Rule from Netherlands in the ancient eras. The fort has been a victim to unceasing outbreaks by the native warrior leaders who enforced the Europeans to give up their grip. Today, the abode endures more similarity to a store room than a military protection and there are only three genuine walls remaining.
The Tiger Rock is an enormous stonework and measures nearly 5 by 10 meters. It demonstrates an engraving of a tiger which is alleged to have slain the kid of an officer from the Dutch marine. According to one baleful account of occasions, a Dutch VIP’s child had been kidnapped and executed by the Malays and Bugis in 1743. Consequently, the residents devised a tale that the child was rushed by the tiger which encouraged the memorial label. Furthermore, there are two curved borders imprinted with the caption “If Carlo 1743” and “VOC”, signifying to the Dutch East India Company.
