Historically, Pangkor was a refuge for local fishermen, merchants and pirates. In the 17th century, the Dutch built a fort in an effort to control the Perak tin trade known as the Dutch Fort. In 1874, it was the location of a historical treaty between the British government and a contender for the Perak throne (the Pangkor Treaty), which began the British colonial domination of the Malay Peninsula. The old British name for the Pangkor Island group was the Dindings.

In 2003, Marina Island (a man-made island) was developed by the Marina Island Group of companies and began operation in 2010, with private investment of RM250 million by 2013.[citation needed] The integrated mixed development resort island consists of waterfront residential properties, a new jetty called Marina Island Jetty, a private commercial marina called Pangkor Marina Malaysia, service apartments, hotels and shop offices.

2004-2014 was a period of high growth and development for the island and the surrounding district. In 2006, a biotechnology centre, a joint venture of Global Hi-Q Malaysia S/B and Hi-Q Bio-Tech International (Taiwan) Ltd began operations with initial investments of RM100million (USD30m). Their operations include fish farming and aquaculture, and the first harvest was expected in 2009.

Gunung Tebu adalah kemuncak ke 8 tertinggi di Terengganu dengan ketinggian kira-kira 1,039 meter (m) dari paras laut. Ia terletak di Hutan Simpan Gunung Tebu dalam daerah Besut di negeri Terengganu. Keunikan bentuk muka buminya menarik kunjungan pendaki tempatan dan luar negara.[2]

Tempat menarik sepanjang mendaki ke puncak Gunung Tebu,di antaranya adalah Hutan Lipur Lata Belatan, Batu Mat Hasan, Jendela Pandang, Batu Mahkamah, Batu Pelana Kuda, dan Batu Madrasah. Jika cuaca yang cerah dan awan yang kurang, pendaki-pendaki akan dapat melihat dua pulau yang terkenal di Negeri Terengganu iaitu Pulau Redang dan Pulau Perhentian dari puncak Gunung Tebu.

Bagi pendaki-pendaki yang kurang berpengalaman, pendakian ke puncak mungkin akan mengambil masa selama 6 hingga 7 jam. Perjalanan yang mengambil masa yang agak lama menyebabkan para pendaki kebiasaannya berkhemah di puncak gunung tersebut.
