The serene island of Pangkor sits just off the west coast near the centre of Peninsular Malaysia.
While it has all the hallmarks of an amazing destination for tourists – sandy beaches, charming villages, friendly locals and great food – Pangkor is still relatively undeveloped and free from holidaymakers.
Aside from being one of Malaysia’s nicest beach destinations, Pangkor boasts a range of activities to ensure there’s something for everyone. Jungle treks and bicycle tours are perfect if you’re looking to get out and see the natural wonders.
Alternatively, the cultural attractions can be found on a motorbike tour, taking in the sights and meeting the locals.
