Pulau Ketam


Pulau Ketam is an island off the coast of Selangor near Port Klang, composed of flat mangrove swamps and Chinese fishing villages built on stilts. Established since 1880, the island supports a relatively small population of fishermen but is growing in development as a tourist attraction. Bicycles are the primary means of transport, the villages connected by concrete boardwalks perched above the muddy terrain.

The island is named after its abundance of mud crabs ('Ketam'), a popular seafood delicacy among its many floating restaurants. Visitors can explore the village structures on foot or bicycle, charter a boat to see mangroves and observe local culture. South Port Passenger Terminal at Port Klang provides ferry/boat service to the island (30-45 minute journey; 7am-7pm daily), located next to a KTM train station.
