HOLIDAY IN PANGKOR ISLAND MALAYSIA
Pangkor Island Malaysia
Pangkor Island is one of the most beautiful islands you can find in Malaysia. My family and I had the chance to go there last week on our holiday. Pangkor Island is situated on the west coast of Perak Malaysia. We stayed at Sea View Hotel and Resort which is in Pasir Bogak. It is actually one of the best beaches in Pangkor Island. There are many hotels and resorts on the island from budget hotels and chalets to the most expensive hotels you can find.
There are also many activities you can do on the island such as jungle trekking,fishing,bird watching,water sports - banana boating,jet ski,canoe and snorkeling. If you are at Pasir Bogak in the morning,you can watch hornbills and will get a chance to feed them. You can watch the sunset in the evening.
We went for a tour around the island right after we reached there. We visited a Dutch fort which was built in the 17th century,Pangkor town,fishing villages and fish satay factory. After checked in at the resort,we went for a walk along the beach and watched sunset on the beach.
On our second day there we spent most of our time doing water activities like jet skiing,boating,canoeing and snorkelling. After all those tiring activities we spent our evening at the resort. It was an amazing experience we had on the Pangkor Island and it really is the perfect vacation getaway.
