As I promised in the previous entry, I will continue with the places that I visited before we left Pangkor Island. In Pangkor Island, pink coloured taxi vans which about 10 seated are available for most part of the day to take us around. Here are some places that we already visited while in Pangkor Island.
1) Kilang Satay Ikan Hai Seng Hin
We went over to Hai Seng Hin factory to buy seafood products. Hai Seng Hin was established as a family business way back in 1969. Over the years the company had became very famous for their seafood snacks, mainly the processed cuttlefish (kerepek sotong), satay fish, fish fillet and satay fish crisp. - Samyeap. Com -

In the temple, we saw hand-painted rocks, paintings, artifacts and on the roof, we found the twelve zodiac signs of the Chinese. - pakji.com -
3) Kota Belanda
One of the main attractions of Pangkor Island, this structure is actually the remains and stone foundations of 300 years old fort builded by the dutch in year 1670. Located at Teluk Gedung, this fort was one of the dutch strongholds built to repel pirates and local malays. It was abandoned after a sucessful attacked by a local warrior, Panglima Kulub and his followers. In 1973, National Museum undertook the fort reconstruction. - pangkor.com -
