Port Kelang (also known as Port Klang) is the busiest port in the nation of Malaysia. It is situated on the Strait of Malacca and is considered part of the metropolitan area of the larger city, Kuala Lumpur. Though sightseeing options for tourists are very limited, many people use Port Kelang as a base location to visit the surrounding area.
Close to the equator, Port Kelang is tropical with daytime temperatures ranging between 29-35 degrees and going down to 26-29 degrees at night. Precipitation is common year round with the peak rainy season coming between October and March and a drier period from May through July. Shielded from the winds of the monsoon season by the deep valleys around its borders, there is no bad time to visit the region.
One place of interest near Port Kelang is Pulau Ketam which means Crab Island. A fishing community off Port Kelang’s coast, this mangrove covered isle holds the entire local village built on stilts one to ten metres above sea level. As one approaches the island by ferry, the buildings give the appearance of floating on the water.
