  • We were on our way to visit the mosque and you pass by the fort en route, so it was no big deal to stop and have a quick look. Only warrants a few minutes.  more »
  • Honestly, the fort is tiny! You can cover this place in 5minutes. It is nicely preserves and beautiful. We were happy to find the nice souvenir shops. We found the gem at this shop selling blowfish....  more »

  • a historical site with the ruins and the remnants of an outpost built by the Dutch in an attempts to control trade in the early day of Malay peninsula. nicely restored and rebuilt with tourist in mind. shops selling souvenirs and snack food&drinks. a good place for taking your holiday photos
  • Malacca you have the Portuguese fort A Farmosa, in Penang you have the English fort Cornwallis and in Pangkor lies the remains of the Dutch fort, not too sure what's the name of this fort. Remarkable this tiny little remains remind us of the existence of the Dutch supremacy after the Portuguese left. Looking at the remains of the structure I wonder how many could occupied inside a cram up size. The walls still looks strong and intact minus the roof and certain parts of the building. What you still find here is a reasonably underground built cell. This a plague placed at the entrance of the fort but the writing has faded and you can hardly read what's written on it. Overall this piece of remain reminded us of the people that had passed through this country. Primarily the place is decently kept but not enough crowd to boost up the place. Little effort to promote this site could be the reason its drawing blanks. A sad side to the stores occupying the lots here, I noticed they too are low on sales. Hopefully with new added attractions will see a changing trend and be among the drawing attractions to the island.
