Welcome to Klang & Pelabuhan Klang
Unless they're making use of ferries to Sumatra, most travellers will cruise through Selangor blissfully unaware of the existence of Klang. The town is split between frenetic Klang town and its port, Pelabuhan Klang (7km east). This is a colourful place where traffic jams are made worthwhile by colonial-era architecture, and day trips beckon to islands such as culture-rich Carey and low-slung Ketam. Meanwhile, a discerning population of local food lovers are queuing for perfectly balanced bak kut teh (stewed pork ribs) and feeding an ever-growing coffee scene.
Klang, 35km west of Kuala Lumpur, is easily accessed via the KTM Komuter train.
