Rehab @ Pangkor (26-28 Jan 2009)

Lumut Waterfront

After a terrible fever that lasted a whole week, I figured I needed to relax and have some rehab time in Pangkor Island, Perak. It was considered a last minute getaway coz we didn't plan for it with my being sick and all the previous week. So on Sunday afternoon, after waiting for Bai to finish some of his work (that seemed to last for hours!), we packed quickly and left the house at 6pm.

We reached Lumut at about 9pm and after dinner, looked everywhere for hotels but to no success. We drove back out to Manjung to look for hotels but since it was CNY holidays, every room is fully booked. But no worries, we were prepared for it - we brought our hammocks and finally camped out at Teluk Batik beach. When we got there, the beach was full of groups of families and frens on picnic and camping trips so it was really safe. We tied our hammocks and slept until 6am (tried to sleep anyway since it was crowded with noisy kids still playing at 3am(!!) and later the mat rempits tested their whatever skills at about 5am). In the end we gave up and left the place to buy the first ticket to Pangkor at Lumut jetty.

The ferry ride took about half an hour so we reached Pangkor quite early - about 8am. Bai rented a motorbike for about RM70 a day (during off peak season the rental is only RM30..sheez!) We were told that all hotels were fully booked but we decided to ride along the Pangkor beach anyway and look for available room anywhere. We rode the bike until Teluk Nipah and scoured for rooms and we finally got really lucky that there was 1 available room in Palma Beach Resort. It costs about RM200/night (off peak rate is RM120 only), but we were satisfied with the room as it was a big room for 4 people (1 queen bed and 2 single beds) and was just a walking distance to the beach.

We checked in after we visited the Kota Belanda (Dutch Fort ) and trekked up the Jambatan Gantung (not much fun by the way). After resting for a while, we went to the crowded beach for some swim and sun. The water was great and the place was really happening with lots of people doing all sorts of water activities, swimming or just chilling out. We wanted to go kayaking (rates about RM15/hour) but decided we would do the water activities the next day.

waiting for sunset

We finally left the beach at about 6pm back to our room, took a shower, and headed back out to catch the sunset. Teluk Nipah is a great sunset spot, but the sun will be partially blocked by the neighbouring islands, so we had to ride towards Pasir Bogak and there a was a perfect spot just before Pasir Bogak. We managed to capture a few sunset shots then when it was about to get dark, we headed back to Teluk Nipah to have some dinner.

Our seafood dinner cost about RM70 - which is OK considering the seafood were all fresh. Then we walked along Teluk Nipah to check out the souvenir shops and later on chilled out at the beach. Nitelife is a bit peaceful here - no pubs in sight here, it's just a place for people to relax and enjoy the beauty of the island itself.

The next day we did some island hopping (costs about RM20/person, inclusive of snorkeling mask and life vest and the boat tour). We passed by Monkey Bay, Pulau Mentagor, Pulau Giam and lastly Coral Island. We did some snorkeling at Pulau Giam, but the place was crowded and the sea has receded so there was nothing much to see. In fact, the sea receded so much that people can just walk from Teluk Nipah beach up to Coral beach. It was fun to watch but we didn't manage to do it due to time limitations.

Pulau Giam

After the boat ride, we swam for a bit and then headed back to our room to check out and then leave the island. Though it was a short trip, I was satisfied that I finally set foot on this island after 30 years of living here in this country
