Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia Cruise Port

While Kuala Lumpur is full of exciting, new, culturally immersive things to do, here are a couple of our favorite shore excursions in Port Klang:


Featured Shore Excursions




Batu Caves

Journey into Batu Caves (from $69 USD per person)
Intricate caves and temples carved into a limestone hill, the Batu Caves are an incredible sight to behold. Venture into the sacred grounds before you continue your tour of the towns surrounding Port Klang. On this tour, you'll be treated to an Instagram-worthy photo opportunity at the Petronas Towers, or who knows, maybe you'll learn something at the Royal Selangor, where a smithing demonstration can create souvenirs for your friends back home! Finish your time at the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park; home to over 3,000 birds and 200 species. A bird watcher's dream, you might say.



Mah Meri Welcome ceremony

Mah Meri Culture Tour (from $79 USD per person)
Cultural immersion is one of the top reasons people cruise, and this excursion literally takes you right into the village of an indigenous Malaysian tribe. You'll be greeted in traditional fashion, with a Mah Meri welcome ceremony, featuring intricately carved wooden statues that are sacred in Mah Meri culture. Finish your experience by learning origami from the ladies of the village, so you'll have a beautiful paper palm leaf to remember this unique excursion.

Port Kelang (Kuala Lumpur) Port Overview

The main sea gateway into Malaysia, the cruise port called Pelabuhan Klang, Port Klang, or Port Kelang is the largest in the country. Prior to 1972, it was called Port Swettenham, named this during colonial times. Usually a stop along the way to Kuala Lumpur (via road or the Klang River), early days were spent developing decent transport so goods could reach port to be shipped. Expansion took place in earnest between World War I and II, with tonnage reaching its peak in 1940. Today, Port Klang does business with more than 500 other ports around the world. While the port itself has very little in the way of attractions, the city of Klang is just a few miles away and can be easily reached by taxi (there's a taxi service counter right as you disembark). Here are a handful of our favorite experiences when cruising to Port Klang, Malaysia:
  • For those not going to Kuala Lumpur, walking through the Aeon Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre (also called the Aeon Jusco Shopping Centre) can easily kill several hours. This is located near the port. With four stories worth of shops and restaurants, there's pretty much nothing you can't find – especially if you forgot to pack something before your vacation.
  • The city's Little India District may seem like an odd place to go in Malaysia, but it's one of Klang's most popular attractions and oldest shopping districts. Full of shops and street vendors selling traditional Indian goods and food, you can also visit the nearby Hindu temples and shrines.
  • The Sultan Sulaiman Royal Mosque was actually built by the British in 1932. A lovely mix of art deco and Middle Eastern influences, it's also the burial place of several sultans (such as Sultan Salahuddin) and other royal family members. The colorful stained glass dome inside is quite breathtaking.
  • The Galeri Diraja Sultan Abdul Aziz (or Sultan Abdul Aziz Royal Gallery) built in 1909 is dedicated to the history of the Selangor Sultanate. The building itself has a colonial-era vibe. Inside, there's a selection of royal items, gifts, artefacts, and a crown jewel replica.
