I went for a 3D/2N visit to Pangkor Island starting from this day, which was just two days after Chinese New Year. I went there by taking a ferry from the mainland. For the three days, I stayed at Havana Beach Resort at Nipah Bay.

I travelled from Penang to Lumut in the morning to catch a ferry to Pangkor Island (Malay: Pulau Pangkor). At about 10.30 am, I arrived at Lumut Jetty. Lumut Jetty is located at the banks of Dinding River (Sungai Dinding).

At about 11.30 pm, I boarded a ferry and began my journey towards Pangkor Island. While travelling towards the river mouth, I passed by Lumut's Royal Malaysian Navy base.
