Best time to visit Pulau Pangkor is from Thursday til Sunday or during school holiday. Its when all the stalls and place comes to life. Stay around teluk nipah and take jetty from Marina Jetty coz shorter route ie 10-15 mins only.

A good place to visit over the weekend to have fun at the beach. Lot of quite beaches to relax and swim. Rent a bike and you can easily go around the island as per your convenience. Good food and calm place.
