Port Kelang, Malaysia

Port visit: Monday, March 11, 2019

Port Kelang (also known as Port Klang) is a town and the main gateway by sea into Malaysia. It is the largest port in the country and is located about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) southwest of the town of Klang, and 38 kilometres (24 mi) southwest of Kuala Lumpur.

Located in the District of Klang, in 2012, it was the 11th busiest container port in the world. It was also the 17th busiest port in by total cargo tonnage handled in 2012.

If your cruise ship visits Port Kelang, book a tour to eg. Kuala Lumpur. I didn’t. Shuttle buses ran through the industrial port to a taxi marquee where a fixed fare applied to an unknown destination.
Again having no map, it was back to the ship for myself and a lot of others.

All was not lost though. The port is extremely busy with ships coming and going continually, and cranes constantly in motion. Plenty to see – including a beautiful sunset.
