  1. Nice intro into Pangkor Island.

  2. how much is d lowest price to get there to pangkor island by sea?and what about by air?
    will there be any discount if i have about 30-45 pax to go there?
    any further details about pangkor island?

  3. I went Pangkor island before… a relaxing place but I was wondering if I went to the wrong season as the water was chalky and I couldn’t see the corals clearly. I still prefer the beaches and the clearer waters in the east coast of Malaysia.
