    Bright Pink Taxis Everywhere

    by Daihappydai Written Nov 7, 2012
    Bright pink taxis parked adjacent to the jetty

    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

    Leaving Pulau Pangkor

    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.

    Van...errr....texi

    Taxis of Pulau Pangkor
    1 more image

    The island is too small for buses so everyone who has no personal transport and needs to get around use these pink vans. I saw the word 'texi' stencilled on the back of all these vans so I don't know if they are referred to as vans or taxis.

    Cost for a ride depends on the number of passengers in the van. If there are at least five, it is RM2 for a short ride. These vans are also available for hire for round the island tours that is about 2 hrs (due to stops at tourist spots). One driver quoted RM40 if there are at least 5 persons. On the day we use that van, we paid RM7 each although there were 7 of us.

    Ferry to Pangkor Island

    by anoum Written Nov 17, 2007
    Ferries

    There are at least two companies that operate ferries between Pangkor island and Lumut on the mainland. The fare is RM10 for a round trip BUT if you should lose your ticket for the return trip, you will have to pay RM10 one-way!

    The ferries are air conditioned with one level in the front and two at the back. There is also an open air deck that you can climb up to enjoy the scenery and sea breeze. The employees of the ferry companies usually do not bother to help you load or unload luggage so be careful when you shop on the island!

    Visitors to Pangkor Laut Resort and Pangkor Island Resort will disembark at jetties different from those who are going to the main jetty of Pangkor island.

    Rice Fields along our way home.

    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 !

    Travelling on Pangkor

    by cucumbre Written Nov 16, 2004
    Selecting a motorcycle

    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

    Ticket counters near Lumut jetty

    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
    The faithful motorcycle

    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.
