One of the other places which I visited during my Kuala Lumpur trip was Pulau Ketam. Pulau Ketam [Crab Island] is an island at the mouth of the Klang River, near Port Klang downstream from Kuala Lumpur. It hosts Chinese fishing villages comprising houses on stilts. Was founded circa 1880 and is easily accessible by ferry from Port Klang.  Please click here to read more
HOW TO GET THERE – Getting to Pulau Ketam from Kuala Lumpur is very easy now with the KTM Komuter train service. Hop on to the Komuter train from any of the stations along the Batu Caves-Pelabuhan Klang Line [Red Line]. The train journey is very comfortable with clean coaches. Go right up to the Pelabuhan Klang Station. The fare from Kampong Batu station is Ringgit 5.00 per trip and varies depending on which station you begin your journey. 
From the KTM Pelabuhan Klang station, you can get ferry ticket at the ferry pier which is just opposite the KTM station. This ferry service has just started operations about a month ago. The fare for air-conditioned ferry to Pulau Ketam is Ringgit 7.00 per trip. Return tickets are also available. The journey is about 30 minutes. There are speed boat services to the island, too.

At the ferry pier, there is a chart showing the ferry operating hours.
One of the many temples on the island.

Market place and typical houses on the island.  Most of the gates are made of stainless steel and are automatic control.  

Small hotels,  numerous seafood restaurants and eating outlets are found on the island too.
