Charming Pangkor Island ?

The little tropical island of Pangkor in Perak, Malaysia ( you can actually cycle around the whole of this island within a leisurely 4 hours ) is a rather unassuming and laid back resort village trapped in a kind of time zone , quite like many offshore islands too in Malaysia . On the one hand bullish businessmen love tourists like heaven while on the other ( usually politically "correct" ) over-conservative 'naturalists' ( hahaha) fear the love-hate crowds will sooner or later cause the extinction of million-year-old natural attractions.

The total collapse of the awesome 'world famous" leatherback turtles of Trengganu maybe a case to ponder...meanwhile da finger pointing goes on...& on...

Perhaps we should LEARN ( not 'study' or 'tour' please ) from some other less endowed countries ( sounds familiar ?) but invariably seem better(smarter perhaps ?) prepared to handle tourists of any creed and kind, & who infact thrives on da Tourist Dollar as a Godsent( even with imitation beaches ala Sentosa Island , courtesy Singapore OMG !).

Never mind , meanwhile do enjoy the show below , on some still alluring natural ( not faked ) charms of Pangkor, often at remarkable prices that will bring :-))) to your faces as bright as the tropical glow here...errr ...ok lah sometimes...


Natural beauties imminently endangered ? ...we pray Pangkor 4 will be much brighter !


some places of interests...


Malay roadside delights , don't ever miss them !


Chinese backStreet bites, as chin-kee as they come

It does seem though that the much overhyped Visit Malaysia Year 2007 has no real positive effects on this quaint little island here...

...as far as we see...
