By Boat

Klang is not located by the sea. However, there are boats between Indonesia (Dumai and Tanjung Balai Asahan) and Port Klang which is located 8km away. Star Cruises terminal is located at Pulau Indah in Port Klang.

By Train

Klang's railway station is located at Jalan Stesen in the part of town south of the Klang River. KTM Komuter, Klang Valley's commuter train network, connects Klang directly with Kuala Lumpur (RM3.60, 50 minutes) and Port Klang (RM1.00, 20 minutes). Several famous bak kut teh restaurants are located near the station

By Bus

The former Klang bus and taxi terminal is located right in the heart of the town opposite the Mydin Shopping Complex, but it has since been moved to Klang Sentral, which is about 8 kilometers away from the town centre.

Buses to and from Kuala Lumpur, Port Klang, Kuala Selangor, Banting and other destinations have been operating out of Klang Sentral since 27 December 2008. As Klang Sentral is located far away from the town centre, the Klang Municipal Council (MPK) has established five bus pick-up points around the town for the convenience of the passengers.

    Transnasional and Cityliner buses operate between Klang and Kuala Lumpur as well as Port Klang. The No. 710 goes to Kuala Lumpur while No. 126 goes to Port Klang.

    Rapid KL buses operate between Klang, Kuala Lumpur (from KL Sentral and Central Market) and Sunway Pyramid in Petaling Jaya. Wawasan Sutera and Metrobus also operate frequent services to Kuala Lumpur.

Other operators include Ardent Link and various minibus companies.

By Car

There are 3 major highways linking to Klang. The North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) links the Bukit Raja toll plaza in Klang to the North-South Highway. Visitors from Shah Alam, Subang, Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur can use the Federal Highway to reach Klang. Visitors can also use the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS highway) to reach Klang South.

Places to Visit

Tugu Keris

Tugu Keris (Kris Monument) - A towering silver Keris (the Malay crooked dagger) welcomes visitors who come to Klang via the Federal Highway. It can be seen on the left hand side of the highway as you pass the Sungai Rasau toll plaza. The monument was erected to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the Sultan of Selangor's intallation in 1985. The Keris was chosen since it depicts power, strength and unity. Entry is free of charge.

Kota Raja Mahadi

Kota Raja Mahadi (Raja Mahadi Fort) - The fort, or what remains of it, is situated at Bukit Kota in Klang. The fort was built by Raja Mahadi as a defensive fortification against Raja Abdullah (his rival in a power struggle for the control of Klang district). The fort was used as a vantage point to look out for enemy ships that sailed through to Pangkalan Batu. Later on, the fort fell into the hands of Tengku Kudin who was sent by the Sultan of Selangor to take revenge on Raja Mahadi because the latter failed to pay his dues to the Sultan. The bloody battle lasted six months and ended with the retreat of Raja Mahadi. These days, the fort serves as an impressive landmark next to the Klang Municipal Hall.

Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) - Go sightseeing to this island located around 30 minutes boat ride from the Klang Jetty (accessible via KTM; stop at Port Klang station). Pay a small fee for the speed boat ride. On the island, you can see a self sustaining island with a school,bank,fire station,police station and etc, mostly inhabited by the Chinese.Used to be a smuggling center,it now produces small food items like dried squid or fish paste.
