Hah! Bet you assumed from the title that this would be another ‘commercialized’ review of a hotel stay. Not entirely. In some ways, yes … the whole of last weekend was spent in Pangkor Island Beach Resort; a famous retreat on the famous island named Pangkor in Perak that is no doubt the star attraction of this silver state of Malaysia, when it comes to tourism activities. Can’t say the same though for my beloved hometown of Ipoh, since 4 stars-and-above hotels are almost unheard of in this part of the city.
And yes, I admit that the accommodation and food were all paid for. Not in the usual manner of a professional review in exchange, but because I was attending a workshop at the resort. More or less like the good old days when we used to spend weekends after weekends cooped in hotel rooms and conference halls attending lectures and such.
Yeah, the good old days …And that horrendously long 14 days spent in Coral Bay Resort on Pangkor Island back in 2008!
