More Travel Information

To properly appreciate the natural beauty of the Straits of Malacca, including the many tiny islands that make up this unspoiled archipelago, it’s best to get on board a boat. From your hotel you can book a trip on a traditional junk, a speedy motorboat or a super-fast catamaran, depending on how you prefer to ride. Your captain for the day will give you plenty of time to explore pearl-white beaches, to fish or picnic, as you pass deserted islands on crystal-clear seas.
A culinary tour of this diverse region would include spicy ethnic cuisine, which blends plenty of fresh fish with vegetables, pickles, delicious noodles and fluffy rice. Our premier resorts have it all and more, with a wealth of European options, à la Carte lunches and tasty snacks for when you’re feeling a little peckish. You’ll soon notice that children are warmly welcomed at the majority of the eateries in Pangkor, but some resorts also offer adult-only dining options.
Luxury Pangkor Holidays offer travellers the chance to discover more about the flora and fauna of the island’s ancient rainforest, with special tours run by experienced local guides. You can be sure of spotting a range of natural wonders, from scuttling geckos, to anteaters, macaque monkeys, carnivorous plants and large monitor lizards. Back at your hotel, there will still be time to sip cocktails by the shore and recall the highlights of your jungle adventure.
