August 23, 2017 139 No Comments


[4,558_9] Pulau Ketam, an island off Port Klang, is a weekend getaway for city dwellers. From KL Sentral to Port Klang by KTM Komuter takes about 75 mins. Allow 30 mins for train waiting time. The ferry terminal is visible from the P. Klang station and a short walk away. Regular ferry (every 45 mins, pay on board RM7) takes about 40 minutes to reach P. Ketam. If you miss the last ferry (7:10 pm on weekends), taking a speedboat will cost RM150. You’ll see mangrove swamps when the ferry goes through Pulau Klang. There are many floating fish farms near P. Ketam. Sea Lion Hotel (at the jetty) has basic but clean rooms, if you wish to watch sunset/sunrise. Seafood there is fresh. Most SG-KL buses terminate at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan. At TBS, take the escalator up. Once inside the building, turn right after the Point convenience store and follow the direction signs to the train station. Purchase the KTM Komuter ticket to Port Klang (RM7.20) from the counter. Get to the correct platform for the train to KL Sentral. At KL Sentral, get up the escalator and look for Platform 5 to take the train to Port Klang.
