... Today was also my checking out day, leaving KL to head up the coast by bus to Lumut, from where you then get the ferry over to Pangkor Island. I'd done my home work and knew the journey took around 4 hours, and that there were scam artists at Puduraya station in KL that try to sell you a ticket to Ipoh for transfer to Pangkor, which can take twice as long!
