Storycitra- Who can reject to get an adventure in another island which I never step my feet there. Honestly, I am so lucky I get wonderful experience while get my first step in Pulau Ketam, Klang, Malaysia. The name this island so unique actually while the first time I heard about this island, Ketam? Ketam is mean crab. So, can you imagine what will you see in the Ketam Island (Crab island) in Klang, Malaysia? Do you wonder about my experience there? What you should do while holiday there and how to go there?

Today, Citra wants to tell you story about the Crab Island. Pulau Ketam is an island located off the coast of Port Klang, Selangor, Malaysia. To get there island, I and You should use boat with all journey on boat you can see many mangroves. 

The view of journey to Pulau Ketam

When I am on the way to the Pulau Ketam, the boat has passed two jetty. First in Sungai Lima (Fifth River) and the second is Pulau Ketam near Hotel Sea Lion. I will not talking about Sungai Lima, but mostly about Pulau Ketam, because I just passed this part. Oops I mean, I just holiday there!


From South Port Klang, remember guys, south port Klang, o.k, because Klang has some ports and you should not get wrong port to go to Pulau Ketam. In there port has 3 services of boats, one the biggest called Alibaba boat the ticket for one way only 9 RM and return 18 and small boat around 8 RM one way. How long to reach Pulau Ketam from South Port Klang? It is no need long time, only 20 minutes. You can enjoy your time on the boat while see the view of journey with a lot of islands which contain with mangroves. So lovely if you are lucky get wonderful weather. So, blue sky and cloud will be best part of your friends during your journey.

The biggest boat to bring us to Pulau Ketam, only RM 9 one way

Best suggestion if you are first time visit Pulau Ketam, choose the biggest boat Alibaba because this boat so big with two floor. One floor with full AC in room and the second floor you can see amazing view without window will make your picture is not good because of glasses of window. No worry, if you love to get nature wind to make your hair messy and smell the fresh oxygen, the second floors is the best part to enjoy your journey to get you in Pulau Ketam. Mostly, local people said the big boat part is outdoor and indoor. So outdoor, you should in up and indoor you should in down with full AC. So whatever it called. That is not change the function of the big boat to get reach Pulau Ketam.

the view of jetty Pulau Ketam, you can see a lot of bicycles

When the boat stop and the first time I see in the Pulau Ketam port is bicycles. I think it just for tourist who want to rent during holiday in Pulau Ketam. In fact, the local people of Pulau Ketam used that bicycles as transportation on this island other than walking. So, you will never see car in that island, mostly you can see small boats. No worry, if you also want to use bicycle then walk during spend time in this island. You can rent bicycle with cheaper price to explore the village. No worry, you will never lost! Because this island not so big and all the people so friendly. I am so unlucky can not explore this island with bicycle because ssstsss this is secret, O.K! Do not tell anybody if I am afraid ride bicycle in this island because the road so small. It seem like Penyengat island, Tanjungpinang, If I compared it! But, the different is local people!

I bet you will surprise while I said this island (Pulau Ketam) mostly the local people are Chinese. Sstsss, honestly, I am so surprise either while see mostly the people in Pulau Ketam are Chinese. I think the local Malay which still traditional habit. But, all my opinion absolutely wrong! The Chinese people in this island from two clans of Teochew and Hokkien. O.K, I will not talking about this history, I just wanna make you jealous about why you should to visit this island one day when you have time to holiday.

one of the best fresh seafood in Pulau Ketam, so yummy :) emm

The sensation in Pulau Ketam of course the food, all the culinary in this island fresh. If you are fan with seafood, then this place the best to enjoy the fresh seafood menu from crab, fish, prawn, and many things you can order with friendly price. Eating fresh culinary and you also want to brings some food from this island, you can find dry fishes and many thing seafood on dry. Because same part of this island has place to make this dry.

Maybe, most of you love to read many books and also its good to learn something about it. Mostly people who get real experiences while best expert to find other solutions. While get trouble in the same way. The most important, they already learn and getting wise while take best decision. Another wise, the words will more confidence while talking about the reason why should like that.

one of biggest problems for me while I should talk in front of people long time ago but now, I love do this!

Trouble with network on provider really make me can not do anything. My jobs and my blogs should get away from me for a while. Because, I can not do job which I need provider to make my jobs success. In real life, It also happened for us, if trouble come into our life. We can not do anything well. Because we feel so blue, worry, angry, and many things bad around us.  It make us so difficult to get concentrate to work or do many things activities which it should be done.

So, what best step you should take when trouble come into alive? Simple way, calm down for a while, relax with the feeling because when we are not emotional, anger, we will get best solution to pass the trouble. Its different if you take decision when you are anger, bad mood, the words come out from your mouth will make them more worse. So, the most important make yourself calm down before doing decision.

calm down when problems and trouble come before taking decision about the right way

Life is hard but more hard the way we take our life to be better and wise. Because being wise is not simple like to say, HELLO everybody I am WISE. But wise is processing you learn about trouble, solution, feeling, character and also how to appreciate people around you. So, lets making trouble network become best network for the future life.

 Trouble Life
I am born in this earth
I grow up with long process
It never easy to be who I am
 Trouble always come to me

I can not run away from trouble
Never success hiding on trouble
Because trouble is easy come to me
I am expert to be runner from alive

But it never make me learn something
Because I am always hiding from problem
Then I decided to make decision fight on trouble
Suddenly here I am! I am being best to find way

No more run away and hiding from problems
Trouble never get stuck so long in my life
Because I am brave to fight with my own
Then I am success as the way I am into my life

Its like the nature said welcome to jungle and enjoy your time to explore us. Why fireflies  night tour start around 06.30 PM? Because in that time, You can see firefly with the little light under the darkness mangrove tree.

The shape of rivers with a lot of mangrove even it in night also look amazing. With the style of river Mangrove, the captain of boat should smart and be careful while bring us to the jungle. Of course, I never lie night is making the cool night air and the silent of mangrove forests will make your imagine so damn fantastic and also horror. Because, there is also has wild animal like snakes. I will tell you about this another article one day.

While the boat stop near Mangrove trees, our guide in boat splash the river water to the mangrove trees and make fireflies fly away and the tiny light similar with Christmas tree with a lot of lamps light and make blinking. Because the dark sky and dark jungle make the light so bright. Mmmm, I can not prove it because my smartphone can not take the picture while an hour tour in forest. But my eyes catch everything with the world say “Awesome, cool. Its so fantastic.”

Because the twinkling lights on fireflies so fantastic. On the boat journey when we almost finish and the boat should bring back us to the jetty (pier), you can back your body and see the darkness of mangrove and compare it when you look in the sky and also front of you. If you are lucky to count  starts in the sky (hihihi) so awesome night adventure.  The best moment either when our boat went to jungle and we also see another boat which it was a local fishermen fishing or trying to catching crabs and shrimps.
