Kuala Lumpur ~ Port Klang
Kuala Lumpur Insights


Port Klang is a town and is the largest port in the country and also the main sea gateway to Peninsula Malaysia. Formally known as Port Swettenham, it is located about 6 kilometres southwest of the city of Klang, and 38 kilometres southwest of the capital, Kuala Lumpur.

The port houses three terminals - South Port, North Port and West Port, within which is the Port Klang Cruise Centre.


South Port

South Port is located within Port Klang town and handles domestic and regional cargo vessels.

South Port is the oldest port and was previously administered by the Malayan Railway as the railway line from Kuala Lumpur literally terminated at the South Port.

Today, South Port is quieter than the other two ports with bulk cargo, ferries and small boats departing from the South Port.

Asa Niaga Harbour City (ANHC) - This complex is the regional passenger ferry terminal, is located just outside the South Port area.

A four-hour ferry ride from here will get you across to the ports of Dumai and Tanjung Balai in Sumatra, Indonesia. It also houses the customs, immigration and quarantine complex, restaurants and shops.

The Pulau Ketam Jetty
Located next to above complex, provides ferry services between the mainland and the island.

Also in the vicinity, in Jalan Limbungan, is the Royal Selangor Yacht Club, a popular hangout for boating and sailing enthusiasts.


North Port
North Port is the largest of the port terminals, is about 10km from Port Klang town centre. North Port handles most of Malaysia's imports and exports. It handles a wide variety of cargoes ranging from containers to cars, break bulk cargoes as well as liquid and dry bulk cargoes.

Westport is mainly a passenger port located on Pulau Indah which is some 20km away from Port Klang town. The Port Klang Cruise Centre (PKCC) is situated here next to the cargo terminals of Westport.

Cruise line and naval ships drop anchor in any of the three berths at Port Klang Cruise Centre.

Pulau Indah island has somewhat of a split personality with the northern side is developed with industrial estates, commercial developments, a Free Zone and a container terminal while the southern side retains some tranquil villages and is developing its mangrove coast as an eco-tourism attraction.

Port Klang Cruise Centre (PKCC)

Port Klang Cruise Centre (PKCC) otherwise known as Glenn Cruise Terminal (formerly called Star Cruise Terminal) is the effective the cruise terminal for the country’s capital Kuala Lumpur.

It is frequently used by international cruise lines including Cunard Lines, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Costa Cruises, Carnival Cruise Lines and Star Cruises among others. The terminal is about an hour’s drive from KL and some 45 minute drive to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

The Terminal is equipped with state of the art facilities and amenities for the comfort of passengers and terminal users including air-conditioned buildings, link bridges for embarkation and disembarkation, covered walkways connecting wharfside and terminal, ATMs, foreign exchange counters, restaurants, souvenir and gift shops and duty free outlets.

Ample parking space is also available for cars and buses besides counters for taxi service. Sadly, even though the terminal is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and amenities, it is grossly under used.


Port Klang is served by the KTM Komuter service and trains stop at the Port Klang Komuter station. The electric train service links to Klang, Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam and other parts of the Klang Valley.

Port Klang Cruise Centre, Westports and the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) are located on Pulau Indah.
