Overview Of The Port Of Port Klang

About Port Klang
Port Klang (or Kelang) is a town and the main gateway by sea into Malaysia in south east Asia.

Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) is 10km west of Port Klang, accessible by ferry. The houses and shops are built on stilts because over 90% of the island is covered by seawater and people here mainly travel by bike or on foot. This island is well known for its superb seafood restaurants. There are over 15 restaurants here.

Most visitors head to Kuala Lumpur. If not going via a ship's organised tour, be aware that taxis may charge a lot of money for a one way trip there.

The Petronas Twin Towers feature a Skybridge between the twin buildings at the height of 192ft. Access to the bridge is limited to certain hours of the day. Kuala Lumpur Tower (called Menara Kuala Lumpur), is 905ft, superb views of the city can be seen on clear days.

Batu Caves is a limestone cave, 8 miles north of Kuala Lumpur. Note: the climb includes over 200 steps and the wild monkeys here can be aggressive when seeking a bite to eat.

The Royal Selangor Club, represents the city's colonial era and is located in Jalan Raja, the city's central area.

King's Palace (Istana Negara) is a regular photo stop during sightseeing trips, though it's not open to the public.

Bukit Bintang is one of the busiest areas for shopping, dining and entertainment. There are also numerous shopping malls. Jewellery, local crafts and cotton clothing are popular buys.

If you're looking to try some local food, stalls are located in Jalan Bukit Bintang.

An hour's bus ride from Kuala Lumpur is the mountain retreat of Genting Highlands, one of the most popular resorts in Malaysia. Genting Highlands has an amusement park, several hotels, a water park, golf course, the largest show restaurant in the country and the only place to legally gamble in Malaysia.

There is a vast choice for dining here from Western fast food chains (McDonald's and KFC) to local favourites including satay dishes, 'hokkien mee' (noodle soup with prawns, ribs, bean sprouts and chilli paste) and 'ikan bakar' (grilled fish).
