Pulau Pangkor, Perak

Went on a family trip recently to a less known island off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Situated nearby the town of Lumut lies Pulau Pangkor in Perak.

You get to enjoy lots of water activities such as island hopping, snorkeling, swimming and jet skiing. The costs for these activities are lower than those found in the other more famous islands.
