Though in recent years I had visited the central west coast of Peninsula Malaysia ie Kuala Selangor & Sekinchan, Selangor but I have yet to visit Sitiawan and nearby places. My last visit to Pangkor island was in 2003. Leong, at an age of 86 is a first timer to Pangkor island and I am glad that he was able to make it for this trip, well done, Leong ! (Leong had since passed away due to sickness in May 2017 - may his soul rests in peace !)
So with a car pool of 4 people, our group took a leisure ride over a weekend from Klang Valley to Sitiawan & Pangkor island and put up a night in Sitiawan to savor the popular Fuchow food and seafood along the way in Pasir Penambang & Sekinchan ! Wong's cousin sister in Sitiawan took us to a few popular food outlets and indeed we tasted some yummy local Fuchow food ie fish maws, red rice wine vermicelli etc. She also arranged our hotel accommodation in Sitiawan.
Minus diving and water sport activities, our group really had an enjoyable time in Pangkor island & Sitiawan. Eating & sleeping were superb on this particularly trip in terms of costs & comfort etc.
