Day 13 – Bagan Datuk to Pulau Pangkor

The ride started a little differently today. We stayed in a small sleepy fishing town that is cut off from the north by a large river mouth. We wanted to continue north and thought we could get to the other side via a ferry. However,  no ferry service, so we organised a fishing boat. For the full story of how that was organised see Julie’s post.

Once we got to the other side it was a good ride through some back roads to Marina Island. The two highlights were our best roti yet paid for by a friendly local and riding through a rubber plantation.

Once we got to Marina Island we caught our second boat for the day to Pulau Pangkor. Great ride to our accommodation, with a couple of very steep inclines, before ending in a great swimming pool to cool off.
