Pulau Ketam Port Klang, Selangor
Pulau Ketam eventhough only a few kilometers away from where I live, but I’ve not really taken the initiative to do a trip there. Probably because I’ve yet to get the right group to join me. A couple of days back, since my parents were doing a trip there because my mum had to go to a school there, I got my Dad to take some photographs to show you all on how the place looked like. I will personally make a trip there in the near future to get more details on their activities and seafood that is available there.
Pulau Ketam can be accessed by driving up right to North Port in Port Klang, or for a much more relaxing journey, you can take the KTM train that ends at the Port Klang station. From the station, it’s only a few minutes walking distant to the Ferry Jetty. The ferry itself was RM7 for a 30 minutes journey and the earliest boat departs at 8.45am. Make sure you plan your time properly because the last boat back to Port Klang is at 6.45pm, if you miss this, you’ll have to stay the night at Pulau Ketam.
Pulau Ketam in English simply translates to “Crab Island”, and as the name potrays, seafood there is amazing. Houses are on stilts as the Island is very prone to flood. There aren’t really any good road system there, mostly are soiled paths that are used for cycling, walking and light motorcycles. There are no cars available on Pulau Ketam and you can probably walk around the entire Island within a few hours.
Pulau Ketam Jetty was also officially launched on the 14th of June 2011.
