A Fishing Village in Pulau Ketam

Pulau Ketam is a small island located in Selangor off the coast of Port Kelang, founded circa 1880. Visitors to the island could travel there by ferry. The island dwellers lived in houses constructed on long wooden stilts, that has come to be known as the ‘floating houses’. The reason being that when the sea level rises, the house is seen to be floating. These houses could be found surrounding the island.

Houses of these type are mainly found in the straits as the seas here are calm, unlike the rough seas usually found on the South China Sea (located on the Malaysia East Coast).

The main source of income for these dwellers is fishing. As their fishing boats are docked by their own homes, these fishermen have direct access to the Straits of Malacca.
