    Kuala Lumpur to Pangkor Laut by air

    by Restless-in-kl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Berjaya Air is operating on a DeHavilland Dash 7 (48 seats) aircraft between Kuala Lumpur Subang Airport (SZB)* Terminal 3 and Pangkor Airport (PKG), on the neighbouring island of Pulau Pangkor.

    A pleasant flight of 30 minutes with stunning views of the West Coast of Malaysia and the Straits of Malacca, will take you to Pangkor Airport. Upon arrival, you will be greeted and assisted by our warm and friendly Resort representatives for a short taxi and boat ride of approximately 30 minutes to Pangkor Laut Resort.

    Cost per person one-way is RM50.00 for an adult and RM25.00 for child.

    Travelling on Pangkor

    by cucumbre Written Nov 16, 2004

    Rent a motorcycle at Pangkor. You may even get a good deal at Lumut Jetty, mainland Malaysia. It is the most common mode of transportation on Pangkor and is definitely very convenient to travel to any part of the island.

    The price is around 20 - 30RM per day. But it could escalate to 50RM during peak periods like holidays. We got it for 60RM for 2 days just before Deepavali. Look for the helpful Mr Tan outside the Pangkor town jetty.

    Some resorts and hotels also offer such rental services but they may be more expensive. So try the town.

    Bicycles are not recommended as there are a numbers of up and down slopes on the road, particularly the northeast region. Would be very strenous to ride a bicycle.

    Else try the taxis in pink!

    Ferry services

    by cucumbre Written Nov 16, 2004

    There are a few ferry operators at Lumut jetty. As you approached the jetty, you would see at least 2 tickets counters (impressionably, one group in yellow and another in pink) trying to draw your attention with their voices. That's where you can buy ferry tickets. :)

    One-way trip cost from 5 - 8RM. Some hotels and resorts like Pan Pacific and Teluk Dalam offer their own ferry service. So do take note. Tell the counters where you are heading (your lodging). They would tell you where to get the right tickets.

    Motorcycle's key and contact no.

    by cucumbre Written Nov 16, 2004

    For the rental of motorcycles, it is good to have the contact no. of the owner with you in case the vehicle breaks down or unforeseen circumstances happen. He should give it to you even if you haven't asked.

    We lost our key at Tortoise Bay in the late evening. It was too far to travel anywhere else on foot. The owner came to our rescue with another key after we called him with the help of another local at the beach. *Phew* Really helpful.

  • Road Trip

    by kissgurami Updated May 24, 2004

    we drove up from Singapore to Lumut. It was a very interesting trip by getting lost in K.L and taking the small roads instead of the North South Highway. But the small roads allow more interesting drive such as rail, greenery , old shophouses.... coconut plantation, palm plantation n even banana plantation.

    It's a 7 hrs drive up. Toll charges came ard SGD 50 coz we went off to the small road. Take caution for trailers

    U can park your car at Lumut for RM10 per night.

    If you do drive, remember to get the fresh mangoes along the way when u have left ard 30-45mins from Lumut. They r SOOOooo good n fresh. I bought "Dragon Fruit" and the flesh is a lovely purple maroon colour. ONe of a Kind !

    Star Shuttle from LCCT and KLIA

    by Daihappydai Written Nov 4, 2012

    Star Shuttle has large comfortable coaches that leave from LCCT ad then KLIA travelling to Sitiawan - you then need to catch a public bus or taxi to Lumut which is about 10km futher down the road.
    The Star Shuttle route is very convenient if you don't want to go into KL city as it bypasses the city and therefore saves a lot of time.
    Cost for the tickets is 45RM - very comfortable seating with a rest stop along the way. The full size bus only has half the regular seating so plenty of leg room.
    I was able to book and pay for tickets online in Australia

    Ferry from Lumut to Pulau Pangkor

    by Daihappydai Written Nov 4, 2012

    Lumut is a bustling little town but there is not a great deal to do so catch a ferry to Pangkor as soon as you can. Ferries leave frequently from early morning to dusk. The trip lasts for 35 to 40 minutes. There are several ferry companies and a return ticket costs 10RM.
    From the deck there are some great views.
    Note that there are two jetties on Pangkor - get off at the second jetty for Pangkor Town and transport to hotels.

    Bright Pink Taxis Everywhere

    by Daihappydai Written Nov 7, 2012

    Transport on Pulau Pangkor involves clambering into a bright pink taxi - minivans with plenty of space for luggage. There is a throng of the taxis parked adjacent to the jetty terminal and large groups at the major beaches. Fares are reasonable 10 - 15RM from Pangkor Town to the beach areas.
    It is also possible to hire a taxi to take you on a tour around the island. Cost is approx 80RM for transport to key attractions such as the Dutch Fort, Chinese Temples and beach areas. The trip lasts 3 - 4 hours and is well worth it.

    Pulau Pangkor to Kuala Lumpur

    by Daihappydai Written Nov 9, 2012

    Return price of the ferry from Pulau Pangkor to Lumut is included in the price to get to the island. There are several morning ferries from Pangkor to Lumut. Once back on the mainland, it is a walk of less than 5 minutes from the fery terminal to the bus terminal. There are several buses daily going directly from Lumut to K.L. We paid 27RM for a very comfortable bus which departed Lumut just after 10am and, with one toilet stop in the journey, arrived in the bus terminal near Bukit Bintang at 2.15. There is probably no need to book the bus ticket in advance unless you are travelling during Malaysian School Holidays.
