They met up at the Pulau Ketam Ferry terminal where they were met up by a local Pulau Ketam tour guide before we sat an airconditioned boat to Pulau Ketam. The trip took about 35 minutes and when we reached the Pulau Ketam Town, we were surprised that the whole town was built on stilts. The walkways are now constructed of concrete instead of wooden planks which used to be norm about 20 years ago. These walkways were mainly done by the town folks themselves and contributed to its construction by donating sums of money. The donor names were listed on a notice board.
The other interesting aspects of Pulau Ketam include bicycle transport, walkways and there are no motor vehicles or motorcycles. Pipe water is now available from Port Klang via a submarine pipe and this is also true for the electrical supply. With power available, airconditioners and Astro connection is possible.
Unfortunately, the whole town does not have an integrated sewage system. This is the main disadvantage which the authorities must look into. By not having a workable sewage system, the wastes from the toilets and baths are discharged into the water below before being washed out to sea.
After a sea food lunch, we took a fishing boat to see the fish farms located near to Pulau Ketam and a floating facility for visitors to stay overnight and to fish. The fish farm consists of groupa and other high value fish which are exported to Hong Kong.
During our visit to Pulau Ketam, the weather has been kind to us. The weather was cloudy in the morning but the sun came out brightly after lunch. The boat journeys were safe and calm as rain did not come while we were at Pulau Ketam.
