For a bit of history, there's the old Dutch Fort at Teluk Genung. Built in 1670, it was a Dutch stronghold against pirates and local Malays, until a ferocious attack by the latter forced them out of Pangkor. Rebuilt in 1743, it served as a garrison for Dutch left by the soldiers remain.

For more information....

Lumut
Travel to the small coastal town of Lumut approximately 84 km south of Ipoh or about 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur if you intend to take a boat ride across the Straits to the islands. This quaint town boasts a peculiar atmosphere even to many Malaysians who visit it for the first time. Lumut seems contented with its own pace of progress compared to how fast the rest of Malaysia is growing. Old, elegant buildings still house some of the town's administrative offices. A 20 minutes drive south of Lumut brings one to the popular beach playground of Teluk Batik, the site of the annual Lumut Festival.
