History of Pangkor Island In past times; this area used to be the center for piracy. People were especially keeping themselves busy with the tin industry, until the British took over. In the Dutch built a fort also for protection against the locals and the higher powers of that time at Tiger Rock.
During the British rule the name has temporarily been Monkey Island. Another option is by renting a car, though there are only a few places where this is possible. Sometimes you will get cheaper prices if you rent a motorbike or car from one of the employees at your resort; but do check up front how things like insurance and such are arranged.
You could of course also consider renting a bicycle, but do know that some parts of the island have some steep climbs which can be quite strenuous in this tropical climate.
Last option is to get around by taxi; but this does limit the possibilities of exploring the island a bit. On the other hand taxi drivers are quite knowledgeable so they might be able to take you to places unknown by tourists.
There are no metered taxis on Pangkor Island. Trips are based on fixed prices. During weekends or public holidays it can be quite crowded on the island, and most of the motorbikes will be rented out.
We paid RM32 per day, but normal price is RM40 per day we rented one for multiple days during our stay. Always be careful when riding a scooter. Always wear a helmet.
Make sure you bring your international driving license with you, otherwise you will not be able to rent the scooter.
Never go too fast. Roads on Pangkor can be quite treacherous and sometimes slippery especially after rain. Attractions and activities on Pangkor Island Below a list with attractions on the island: Water sports and other activities are plenty around Pangkor Island. Especially around Bogak beach and Nipah beach there are numerous operators that offer banana-boat rides and Jet Ski rental.
Pangkor Town is a nice place to visit as there are many great local restaurants where you can enjoy typical dishes originating from the island itself. Kali Amman Temple is the only Indian temple on the island; especially interesting to visit during the two big festivals of Deepavali and Thaipusam.
You can arrange a nice offshore fishing trip through your hotel or resort; though this can be quite pricy. You can also arrange a boat with local fishermen for a day.
Pulau Jarak is quite a boat ride away from Pangkor, but it is worth the trip.
Here you can find great marine life. The small island itself is perfect for a secluded day trip. You can do some light jungle treks around the island. The best one, the Pangkor Hill Trek, starts at Bogak beach and takes you all the way to the eastern side of the island to Sungai Pinang Kecil.
Most jungle hikes only take an hour or two.
Always notify your resort or guesthouse owner that you are off to do a jungle hike. Another fun thing to do is to rent a boat for the day to go around the island.Tasik Kenyir Express V3.
