My RM80 Trip

Did you ever think that you can have a nice two days and one night trip in Pangkor for only RM80?? haha..guess what.. i already got it.. :) during my semester break last year, i went to Pangkor with my good friends during my secondary school days..but.. its only for gurls..:P only five of us joined for that trip..sad thing, my bestfriend cannot joined us for some reason..(we gonna make another trip for you husna).. :) want to know how i spent only small amount of money for a nice trip at an island? the main tip i want to share with all of you is to go there when people cannot go. haha..it means that go for a trip on the weekdays, not on the weekend. the most important is not during school holidays.. here is my story..

On the 1st day, we took ferry from Lumut. Ferry fees for go(Lumut-Pangkor) and back( Pangkor-Lumut ) is only RM10. When arrive at Pangkor, we can see that a lot of "pinky van" along the roadside outside the jetty terminal..haha.. all that van was pink in colour with the words 'van persiaran' on some of them. Seeing us out from the terminal, most of them trying quite hard to make us interested to ride with them. The first thing i thought about the van fees is it maybe a little bit expensive. I don't know how they usually operate during school holidays season, but I was shocked when one of the 'pak cik' offered us to have a ride around the island. I was like 'kagum' when ...

pakcik : adik, nak jalan2 sekeliling pulau ke. pakcik blh bwk.
Me : Kire mcm mana? harga?
pakcik : alaa..murah je. RM15.
Me : haa..sorang RM15? hmm..
Pakcik : xla..kire satu van. sume skali blh naik..dalam 6 org.
Me ; owh..ade had masa x pakcik..kami nk berenti kat tmpt2 menarik..amik masa lama harga sama ke..
Pakcik : xpe..pulau ni kecik je. slalo dalam 30 minit dah abis pusing. Kalau kamu nk jalan 2 jam pon pakcik blh bwkkan.

haha.. can you imagine how cheap that pakcik offered us for the tour. If we take the taxi from USM to Parit Buntar on 5 minutes ride, it cost us RM8 already..haha..how funny i thought that time. Mayb only a little number of tourist on that day and the 'pakcik' just want to fill his free time. Thats why its cheap..hehe. Dpt balik duit minyak n untung utk minum kopi pon jd la kan. But, sori pakcik, we don't take your van for the tour.. :( so, how we go around the island?? walking?? haha. nope..its because a policeman(pakcik polis) was waiting for us..hehe. policeman?? kene tangkap ke ni?? no la..one of my friend, maman, her father was a policeman. So, her father asked one of his friend there to take care of us..then, the first thing we do is the policeman(cannot remember his name) brought us to the place that we were going to sleep that night.. u know that we are five and that pakcik polis brought only Kancil to pick us. He thought that it was only few of us will be there..so, terpaksa la kami sume duduk cam sadin kan..the main thing i want to highlight is that 'pakcik polis' bwk kete peronda yg de lampu biru kat ats tu..haha.. seriously, mmg mcm pesalah kene tgkap time tu..haha..really a funny memory to remember. haa..about our place to stay that nite, want to know what place??


It was a nice place to stay. But not anybody can stay here. Because of maman's father, so, we can stay there. Its only cost us RM70 per room. 2 person for one room. so, a only have to paid RM35 for one night. That policeman told us, if maman's father was also join us that time, we all can stay there for FREE!! haha..really interesting..i'm appreciate it a lot..thanx maman...

Swimming pool n the jakuzzi..haha..nice

excited..it belong to us that day!!

After have a nice walk around the villa, that 'pakcik polis' already left for his work. but, that villa has another policeman that take care of it. How about to call him 'pakcik polis 2'..haha. he asked us about our trip planning. haha..everyone just give him a smilling face..actually, we don't really have a precise planning about our trip, where and when to go. Nobody was never planned it..haha..don't try this k. better planning your trip!.. That pakcik was so very kind..he gave us some idea about oup trip. So, on that evening, he brought us to look around the place of interest in the island. We also visit Fu Lin Kong Chinese Temple, Dutch Ford, Batu Bersurat(Tiger Rock), Pangkor Airport(really small airport) and Pangkor Town that selling many types of dried seafood.

Fu Lin Kong Chinese Temple - you can see mini Great Wall of China here :)

At Dutch Ford - one of the Dutch strongholds against pirates at Pangkor

We was travel around the island on that day and looking at the village that makes me feel better. With the nice view of the seaside, the villager there doing their routine, the fresh air and the most important thing..not many outside people(tourist) there. It was really peaceful.. For you to know, Pangkor is really small island for me. juz for one evening, you can already travel around it and not much things to visit. Really opposite likes Langkawi Island i think. But, it can be a fantastic holiday vacation for everyone who wants to go somewhere out of the ordinary.. :)

That night, we only stay at our room with simple chit chatting. Everyone looked very tired that night. haa..you know, in that villa, only five of us stayed there that night. guess what..because all of us are girls, that 'pakcik polis 2' really anxious about us being there ourself, then he sent a police for every one hour(from 12 am-6am) to take a look that villa. haha..can you imagine that stay in a villa with a policeman guard around..feel safe and like VIP rite..thanx to the policeman for the night guarding.

The next day, we went to Teluk Nipah for the water activities. it was really nice beach. I'm a little dissapointed because banana boat was not operating because there was only a few tourist that day. So, we decided to go for a snorkelling after satisfied playing on the beach. This is my first time going for snorkelling..i'm feel bad and a little bit afraid because i can't swim..haha..although can't swim, you still can do the snorkelling n you can feel that it was very interesting. Why not to try it if you have a oppotunity..the important thing, do not afraid of it and u can find it is very exciting. After the snorkelling, we ride a boat to go around the island and it feel very refreshing..haa..I only paid RM12 for the ride plus the snorkelling. it was cheap rite. Then on the evening, our trip was ended with a nice memory.

Teluk Nipah - the most beautiful and popular beach at Pangkor

To total up all my cost there :

Ferry ticket = RM10
Villa + free van tour from 'pakcik polis' = RM35
Snorkelling + boat tour = Rm12

Total = RM 57.00

when total up with the eating cost and shoping the dried seafood I only spent RM80 for this trip. are you really believe it?? haha.. its real guys..so, believe it. It was really my RM80 trip and it was PANGKOR!!!! can you get it like i already got??
