Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur Cruise Port)
Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur Cruise Port) serves as a gateway to the metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, situated some 40 miles (64 kilometers) away. Unless you're a golfer looking to improve your handicap at Port Klang Golf Resort, the port is mostly used as a transport hub and activity-packed shore excursions are popular ways to cover more ground in Kuala Lumpur.
As Malaysia's capital city, Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot of Chinese, Indian, and Malay cultures and Buddhist, Hindu, and Islamic religions. On arrival at the cruise port, travelers generally head out on a sightseeing tour—with round-trip transportation included—of the city's most photogenic attractions, which include the Batu Caves and the twin Petronas Towers. Opting for a private shore excursion means you can customize your itinerary and make the most of limited time in Kuala Lumpur as you visit only the sights that capture your interest.
Things to Know Before You Go
Most cruise liners in Port Klang dock at the Pulau Indah terminal, home to covered walkways, Wi-Fi, restaurants, duty-free shops, and restrooms.
The majority of Kuala Lumpur shore excursions include pickup and drop-off from the port.
Port Klang's distance from the city center means most shore excursions involve a few hours of travel time.
