Port Klang (Malay: Pelabuhan Kelang or Pelabuhan Klang) is the principal port in Selangor, a state of Malaysia. It also serves as the port for the Klang ValleyKlang Valley, Malaysia's most developed region where the capital Kuala Lumpur is located.

There is nothing much to bring a traveller to Port Klang except for the ferry link to Tanjung Balai in the Asahan region of Sumatra, Indonesia. Like most port cities, Port Klang has a seedy feel to it and most of its buildings and structures are maritime-related, such as warehouses, storage tanks and offices.

In maritime terms, Port Klang actually consists of three distinct ports. The port nearest to Port Klang town is known as the South Port. There is also a North Port and the newly developed Westport located on an island just off the coast of Port Klang.

Port Klang

Get in

Port Klang

By road

Port Klang lies at the western end of the Federal Highway, the main expressway linking the major centres of the Klang Valley like Klang, Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur.

An elevated expressway linking the South Port (and hence Port Klang town) and North Port connects to the Shah Alam Expressway which then leads to the North South Expressway.

Port Klang is about 40km from Kuala Lumpur and 8km from Klang.

Port Klang

By bus and taxi

The Port Klang bus and taxi terminal is inconveniently located at a distance away from the port area. One can walk the distance but the heat, noise and pollution may make it an unpleasant experience.

  • Transnasional (http://www.nadicorp.com.my/transportation_routes_stage.asp) is the main bus operator. Its No. 710 links Port Klang with Klang and Kuala Lumpur (Pasarama Kota or Klang Bus Stand). There are also frequent buses to Klang and other nearby destinations.
  • Other operators, such as Permata Kiara and Metrobus, also operate buses to and from Kuala Lumpur and Klang.
Port Klang

By train

The railway station is located just outside the port area across the road from the ferry terminal. KTM Komuter (http://www.ktmb.com.my/article.cfm?id=51), Klang Valley's commuter train network, links the station with Klang (20 minutes) and Kuala Lumpur (one hour 10 minutes) with trains once every 15 minutes during peak hours, and once every 20 minutes during off-peak hours.

Port Klang

By boat

The ferry terminal - with the grand official name South Port Cruise Terminal - is located in the port area where the Federal Highway (which is a two-lane city road at this point) meets the sea.

  • Daily ferries to and from Tanjung Balai in the Asahan regency of North Sumatra province on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Operated by Aerospeed (Tel: +60-3-3165 3073). Daily departures at 1pm. Tickets: RM 80/150 one-way/return. Please note that Tanjung Balai is NOT a visa-free entry point and travellers need a visa to enter Indonesia via this port.
  • Star Cruise ships call at the Star Cruise Terminal at Westport.
Port Klang

Get around

Walk to get from the ferry terminal to the railway station and bus and taxi terminal. Port Klang town just beyond the bus and taxi terminal and can also be reached on foot.

Port Klang

See

Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) is a mangrove covered island off the coast of Port Klang. The entire village on the island is built on stilts, making it an interesting day trip. How to get there: Take a ferry from the Port Klang ferry terminal. There are about 15 trips a day and the journey takes about 30 minutes. For more information, check the Pulau Ketam website (http://www.pulauketam.com/pulauketam/en/main.html).
