The island is located about 10 kilometers west of Klang. Take the high-speed ferry, and you’ll be there in no time. The island is interesting because nearly every structure is built on stilts. At high tide, the majority of the island falls under water. There are no real roads on the island and most travel is done by foot or bicycle along boardwalks. There are about 20 seafood restaurants here, all of which serve fresh off the boat fish. You can also find excellent bird watching on the island. The ferry provider can point you in the best direction for a possible bird-watching tour.
