KL 2017 Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) Day Trip


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.

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.

I would not walk on this one.

Surprisingly, there is only one store which sells dried seafood products here.
