If you're planning a trip to Pangkor, why not drop by this handsome, retired warship? This is something that you should do at least once in your lifetime.
It is located along the way to Lumut Jetty. You can't miss it! Leave your car at the park carpark and walk towards the ship.
Operating hour is from 10 am to 6 pm (close on Tuesday). Details are available on the signage above the pier walkways. Apparently you can book an overnight stay on the ship as well.
1) Wear comfortable shoes. I was wearing wedges and it was challenging enough going down the engine room.
2) Follow the arrows.
3) Stick to the main path if you're claustrophobic
4) Bring a camera but one that you don't have to hold all the time since you'll be negotiating lots of stairs.
5) Some areas in the ship can get kinda stuffy. Wear comfortable outfit.

It was a humbling visit. I know the ships are much more modern nowadays but it is still tough living on one. Thank you, dear navy men and women who sacrificed comfort and luxuries for the safety of us all.
Yeah I was a bit upset especially after looking at the living quarters.
So I awarded myself with this deliciousness :)
