Pangkor Island is one of the most beautiful islands in the Peninsular of Malaysia. The name was originally Thai, Pang Ko, which means directly translated to Beautiful Island. The island is definitely a great relaxation spot, away from the hustle and bustle of city life and it still maintains its rural lifestyle which definitely a lot more kickback. The island offers crystal clear waters, warm white sandy beaches with jungles to explore. The waters of Pangkor Island are also perfect for snorkelling, breath-taking views during scuba-diving, and also the island provides a perfect condition to wind-surfing. Pangkor Island is accessible via a ferry ride from either the Lumut Jetty or Marina Island Jetty. The ferry ride will take forty-five minutes despite its location is rather close to both jetties. The ticket is RM 5 for a one-way ferry ride from both jetties.
The fort was built by the Dutch East India Company in 1670 at Teluk Gedung of the Pangkor Island. It is one of the important relics in the island and this shows the glorious history of Pangkor being colonized by the Dutch. The fort was used by the Dutch as a protection for the colonial masters against pirates and also locals that were unhappy with their presence on the island. The Dutch also kept their tin ores, mined in Perak, in the fort. In the 1970s, the Museum Department of Malaysia had reconstructed the then-ruined fort. In 1997, the Perak government had further developed the surrounding place and upgraded the place as one of the tourist destinations. There is only one original Dutch building still standing after all these years. There is no admission fee being imposed to any of the visitors of the fort.
