Missing the sea breeze? Not anymore, Perak is more than just limestones and caves - it is also home to sandy beaches. Pangkor Island’s white sandy beaches and clear sea make it a popular destination for Malaysian’s and the charm of the fishing villages provide a unique holiday experience. Tourists can snorkel at Giam Island, visit the Dutch Fort, enjoy the fresh seafood and shop for Pangkor’s famous anchovies.
If you want to retreat to a less touristy destination, pay a visit to Teluk Batik or Teluk Senangin for a break from the hubbub of the city. If at all you feel like visiting Pulau Pangkor, you can plan a day’s trip to these places as Lumut jetty is located nearby.
Tourists can also drop by the River Terrapin Conservation Centre to see the conservation efforts on this endangered species. History buffs can visit the Pasir Salak Historical complex, where the Perak British Resident was assassinated.
