Malaysia - Pangkor Islands

After a couple of days of 21c in the highlands, we are in need of some warmer weather and so decide to head back to the beach. The small island of Pangkor our next destination, population of just 25,000 of which tourists number about 20 on a good day. The journey here was an adventure in itself, the bus driver first got lost then later whilst driving down the motorway the side storage door came open throwing many spare engine parts down the motorway. one car damaged so had to wait for the police.
After a short ferry crossing we finally arrived 9hrs after leaving the mountains just 170km away. Pangkor a beautiful small paradise island, some stunning beaches and a couple of small local fishing villages. The island does not receive many tourists, and it is a small working fishing island. Checked in to a nice little guesthouse `palmas guesthouse` everything ok until on the second night there was a 5 inch cockroach running across the floor which took some catching.
Spent two days on this island and most of that was just laid on the beaches drinking  from the coconuts. One afternoon we hired a moped and drove the 15km around the island taking in all the sights. One of the most interesting sights on the islands was the giant Hornbill birds, its amazing how these big strange ugly looking birds can fly, anyway we had them eating bananas from our hands. Batteries are now recharged and its on to our last destination in Malaysia Kuala Lumpur we go.
