Pangkor Island 2D1N Relaxing & Surprising Trip...

Last Saturday Jimmy and I went to Pangkor Island for a 2D1N relaxing trip..Earlier I have google-ed about the places of interest and famous food in Pangkor Island..For accommodation, we booked Vikri Beach Resort..The review of this resort is quite good..Somemore, it is just located in front of the Pasir Bogak Beach (within 100m walking distance)..So both of us would like to have a try..

Early morning, we took our breakfast in Ipoh..Then we departed our journey at 8am..About 9am, we arrived Lumut..We parked our car at the Multi Storey Covered Car Park at Lumut..Personally, this car park is quite safe if compared to others outdoor car park as I could see there are guards at every level..The parking fee is RM10 for 24 hours..

After that, we walked to Lumut Jetty..On the way to jetty from Covered Car Park, there are covered pavement for visitor..If rainy day, visitors do not have to worry to get wet..Hehe..Within 5 minutes time, we arrived Lumut Jetty..There are 3 ferry counters which are Duta Pangkor, Pan Silver Ferry and Mesra Feri..We bought 9.45am ticket..The ticket to Pangkor Island is RM10 included return way..The ticket is valid for 1 month..When we entered terminal jetty, there is a Malay lady offered us motor rental service in Pangkor..We exchanged our phone number and we will straight away get our motor at Pangkor jetty..The rental fee is RM30..

After went up to ferry, we chose upstair seat..The interior of the ferry is quite narrow..Besides, the windows are quite dirty..Around 10.30am, ferry only departed..On the way to Pangkor Island, we could see The Malaysia Royal Navy on our left..There are many military ships..There is a balcony at the stern of the ferry..We can go out for a sea breeze blowing and photoshooting..Hehe..

Around 11am, we arrived at Jetty Pangkor..We could see the trademark of Pangkor Island - Giant One Malaysia right at the Jetty Pangkor..After we walked out from jetty, there are 2 rows of people queuing up at the main entrance..Jimmy and I thought that they are passengers..Unexpectedly, they are providing motor rental service..Hehe..It is really funny..

After that, we called up our motor rental agent..While waiting for him, we could see that a lot of motors parked at the jetty..Many of them have the key inserted..At the other side, there are a lot of Pinky Taxi (van)..Hehe..It is one of the trademark of Pangkor Island..After took our motor, we felt that the motor is quite bad condition and spoil..But, we just took it as a lesson..To my readers, I would recommend that rent a motor after you have seen it..Hehe..

I could not describe how happy am I..But it is really happy!! Hehe!!

Around 5 minutes, we arrived Vikri Beach Resort..It is just located beside the beach..The bosses of this resort are an Indian couple..They are quite friendly..After paid and got our key, we walked to our room..Our room is facing to the sea..Hehe..Our room rate is RM100..After added on the 5% government tax, total have to pay is RM105..

The interior of our room is quite simple, nice and clean..They have provided TV, soap, toilet paper, heater and air conditioner..However, the TV only showed one program which is Astro Box Office Indian Channel..For those who like to watch TV, it is quite suffer..Hehe..

After that, we went back to our resort..We took a rest and head to Teluk Nipah Beach..Hehe..The road to Teluk Nipah is quite winding and there are a lot of steep hills..We have to be careful while going to Teluk Nipah from Pasir Bogak..When we reached Teluk Nipah, they are renovating along the beach..Eventually, it is not a right time to stay at Teluk Nipah at the moment as it is noisy and the beach is quite dirty..

We went to Lin Je Kong Temple..It is located opposite to the Giam Island..The Giam Island is famous for snorkeling..We took a lot of photos at here..Hehe..Of course, I be the model..Hehe..
