Malaysia - Perak Darul Ridzuan - Pangkor Island (1)
Some beautiful beaches of Pulau Pangkor.
1. Emerald Bay on the west of the Pangkor Laut Island.
2. An isolated streatch of beach on the south-western coast of Pangkor Laut Island.
3. Telok Belanga on the west coast of Pangkor Island.
4. Deep sea trawlers are a familiar sight in Pangkor.
I mailed this postcard from Post Office of Pangkor Island on 27 June during my business trip on that island.
Pulau Pangkor is an island off the coast of Perak in north-west peninsular Malaysia, reached by ferry either from the old jetty or from Marina Island jetty both located in Lumut (a small coastal town that links to Ipoh through Sitiawan). It has a land area of only 8 square kilometers, and a population of approximately 25,000 islanders. It is heavily promoted as a low-key tourist destination by the Malaysian government, but fishing and fish products remain major industries. (read further)
