Port Klang/Kuala Lumpur

Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to Kuala Lumpur

The sea town of Port Klang, an MSC World Cruise destination, is a vital gateway to Southeast Asia and Kuala Lumpur. From here, you can explore Malaysia’s buzzing capital — a blend of ancient temples, colonial squares, colourful markets, and modern skyscrapers.

MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including: 

• Kuala Lumpur Discovery 

• The Petronas Towers 

• The Batu Caves

Kuala Lumpur, the vibrant capital of Malaysia, unites Chinese traditions and an English cultural heritage. On an MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll see charming colonial buildings, fashionable shopping centres, and the majestic Petronas Twin Towers. Take in an exhibition showcasing Malaysia’s history at the National Museum, then stop by the National Palace and Independence Square. Admire the Sultan Abdul Samad Building before visiting the National Monument — a freestanding bronze sculpture which commemorates Malaysian soldiers. 

Enjoy an MSC Cruises excursion to the Petronas Twin Towers, two of the tallest buildings in the world! Arriving at the skyscrapers, you’ll appreciate the magnificent postmodern architecture, designed by renowned Argentinian, César Pelli. Take a high-speed lift to the observation deck on the 86th floor to admire breathtaking views of Kuala Lumpur. Gaze at the spectacular cityscape, mountainous jungles, and the Straits of Malacca on the horizon. 

Take an MSC Cruises excursion to the beautiful Batu Caves, a labyrinth of limestone located in Gombak, Selangor. Believed to date back more than 400 million years, the caves are used during Hindu pilgrimages and festivals. Upon your arrival, visit the magnificent golden statue of Lord Murugan, the Hindu God of war, which stands nearly 43 metres high at the foot of 272 holy steps. Climb to the top cave to soak up the spiritual atmosphere or watch cheeky long-tailed macaques chase and play!

    Suspended between past and future
    Suspended between past and future

    Malaysia has something to offer every MSC World Cruise cruiser – from heady bar- and club-hopping in the capital, historical buildings in towns rich in colonial history and countless regional delicacies, to trekking and wildlife-watching in the world’s oldest tropical rainforest and diving at some of the world’s best sites off the white-sand beaches of its many islands.

    On a cruise to Malaysia you’ll encounter much charm and beauty; its rich cultural heritage is apparent in both traditional village areas and in its commitment to religious plurality.

    The dominant cultural force is undoubtedly Islam, but the country’s diverse population of Malays, Chinese, Indians and Borneo’s indigenous tribes has created a fabulous juxtaposition of mosques, temples and churches, a panoply of festivals, and a wonderful mixture of cuisines. The Malays insist that their food combines the best flavours and dishes of the surrounding countries – and after a few meals from a sizzling street stall, you’re likely to agree.

    A First impressions of Malaysia’s high-tech, fast-growing capital, Kuala Lumpur (KL), are likely to be of a vibrant and colourful modern metropolis with gleaming skyscrapers. Pulau Langkawi is a popular, palm-fringed, duty-free island north of Penang, while routes down the Peninsula’s east coast include stops at the truly stunning islands of Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Tioman.
