Malaysia east coast or west?

I am planning a trip around Malaysia for August which I believe is when the west coast has its monsoon season, leaving the east coast with nice weather, is this correct. Also if I am already heading to the Perhentian Islands is there much point in going to Langkawi. Has anyone been to Pulau Pangkor is it difficult... show more I am planning a trip around Malaysia for August which I believe is when the west coast has its monsoon season, leaving the east coast with nice weather, is this correct. Also if I am already heading to the Perhentian Islands is there much point in going to Langkawi. Has anyone been to Pulau Pangkor is it difficult to get to and worth the effort, I am planning on going there from Kuala Selangor, is there a direct bus or would it be easier to hire a longdistance taxi? (Theres only 2 of us)
Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.
