Pulau Pangkor, Malaysia

Filed under: travel — Tags: , , — mat @ 10:43 am

After 14 hours of traveling we arrived late night at Nipah GH, Pangkor. I still do not feel very well so the journey was quite pain. But we were welcomed by Alicia so warmly so I think it is a perfect place to recover soon.

Alicia and Anur and the kids are still so gentle and warm hearted. the GH is almost empty, may be coz of the economic situation in Malaysia. just guessing . I got more medicine and now after 3 days it’s really getting better.

More to come.

Bye Pangkor

Filed under: travel — Tags: , , , — mat @ 3:25 am

We had a really pleasant stay at Nipah GH. Even the weather wasn’t that nice as it should but the coastline was affected by the taifun in Vietnam.  now it’s sunny and clear and we have to leave heading towards Georgetown. We met some nice and friendly people, thx to Shelley and Darren from Finding Beyond the first digital nomads I met so far. I wish you good luck and always a safe journey. Stay hungry. A quite nice dinner at Coral Beach with a pretty sunset 


Seems that backpacker like to stay among themselves if traveling in smaller groups. But anyway. While sitting on the ferry to Lumut would like to share to view 

3 hrs to go by bus and we have been promised that everything is ok while Penang was flooded but the old town areas should be fine. Will keep you posted.

Pangkor – today with sun

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 9:32 am

it didn’t rain during night but starts 7am. But forecasts say we’ll have sun today so we decided to rent a scooter and do a roundtrip on the island. Before we extended our stay for one night , I found a mistake in our planning , I forgot one night. So better here than in Georgetown. Took some pictures while crossing the island , here they are


Breakfast is really nice, a kind of D.I.Y you get eggs and sausages and have access to the public pan. Butter and toast and jam available as well and you can make pancakes if you want. 


So really a place to stay and even better with sun. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Pulau Pangkor

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 9:47 am

Finally we made and stay at the best guesthouse so far. Nipah GH at Pangkor island. Very cozy and nicely maintained.

Unfortunately it’s still raining. We brought it from the Cameron’s with us. Not really the rain season is a little bit extended than usually.  And valid for the whole coastline. May be we need to change our travel plans.

The room is like an A frame with an enclosed bathroom, an AC and it’s clean and big enough for the two of us. TV is available as well but since we arrived in Asia I don’t miss it and neither does Mandy. Went out to spot a place for tonight’s dinner and we saw two Hornbill birds!! At Kao Yai we must be lucky to spot them and here it is
