After getting the Pineapple buns, my sister and the gang (me, my niece and her friends) proceeded our journey to Pulau Ketam.
We took a ferry from Port Klang to Crab Island.
The ferry ride (the long one in the above photo) is quite comfortable as it is air-conditioned. The ferry ride was just over half an hour.
The ferry ride is RM15 for an adult’s return ticket. Ferry schedule is every 45mins and the last ferry to leave Pulau Ketam is 5:30pm.
Getting off from the ferry, looks a bit scary.
A sculpture at the jetty on Crab Island, can’t really tell what it is.
The ceiling of the walkway from the jetty is decorated with fish made with wooden boards.
The houses on Crab Island were built on stilts.
There are thousands of tiny crabs on the mud beach.
Another wooden sculpture.
A closer look at the house on stilts.
A commemorable gate at the entrance to the village.
One of the few seafood restaurants on the island. Most people came here for the seafood.
Chinese New Year decoration store. The residence here are predominantly Chinese. Hokkien is the predominant language spoken here.
A house decorated for Chinese New Year.
One of the few temples on the island.
There is even a permanent stage for opera performances for the temple. This one was dilapidated.
Shell fish brought in by the tides.
We came across some fruit trees planted by the residence in their compound. The above is a “ciku” tree. The fruit is very sweet when ripen.
Passion fruit plant.
The above is an original wood plank walkway. These were replaced with concrete walk way in most part of the island.
I would not walk on this one.
Surprisingly, there is only one store which sells dried seafood products here.
I bought some anchovies and dried shrimps to bring home.
We snacked on some dehydrated mango on the ferry ride back. My sister made them as healthy snack.
