Bukit Melawati is located in the coastal town of Kuala Selangor. It’s a rich historical site, only 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur. Sultan of Selangor has a fortress on Melawati Hill to protect the state from intruders at the end of the 17th century.

My trip to Bukit Melawati was just coincidence with Sekinchan trip. Since we have crossed by this place, we decided to stop by for sight-seeing as none of us except me have been here before.
That time, it was under hot afternoon. Everyone there was taking the tram at cost of RM3 for each in one way.
Pulau Ketam if translated literally, means “crab island”. It is a small island located off the coast of Klang. The island is easily accessible from the Port Klang jetty by ferry. You can either take KTM Komuter train (1.5 hour) or by car (45 mins) to reach the jetty. In Klang, you will take the high speed ferry to Pulau Ketam. Its only a half hour ride (12 nautical miles) away from the hustle and bustle of Port Klang.

We took the 11.00am ferry and arrived about 45 minutes time. We enjoyed the trip very much. This was how we started this wonderful trip, simple yet memorable day trip when almost everyone of us managed to agree to go this place.
