"45mins From Civilisation" Pulau Ketam by yeikloen
Pulau Ketam Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 44 photos
Its been more than 10 years since my first visit to Pulau Ketam. I remember when I was really young my parent brought me there for the delicious seafood once but only once because my dad was not very happy with the ferry that ferried us across from Old Kland Port (he has motion sickness actually).
The reason he always gave was the island is dirty, seafood are not very cheap and nothing much to offer, which after 10 year coming back, I do not see much improvement other than the cement path to the main part of the town where most of the restaurant and shops are.
Is not that Kuala Lumpur is a very well planned city, but going to Pulau Ketam you will experience a town that was completely forgotten. This island is a good getaway for the city folks but with the current situation, it will not attract much visitor (for me I will not suggest my friend to go there)
At RM28 per kilo for meat crab (or RM32 for egg crab) is not very pricey nor very cheap. The interesting part is how the crabs are being prepared. I had crab fried with dried chilli, I think the crabs are deep fried before it was fried so the shell are very tasty. I had other dishes like fried squids, a veg and a some shell fish(lala) that cost me RM52.00. I do not think it is very cheap.
- Pros:Get Out From City
- Cons:Broken Wooden Path With Dogs Manure Everywhere
- In a nutshell:Go If You Are Really Bored
Departure from Port Klang is quite frequent almost every 1 hour or so. The fare from Port Klang is RM5.50 for adult and... more travel advice
