Port Klang (GPS: 3.00507, 101.40859) is a town in Selangor that is home to the biggest port in the country. Also called Pelabuhan Kelang, Port Klang is actually a separate town from Klang. It was formerly known as Port Swettenham - the same name as the port in George Town, Penang.

By the time I arrived at Port Klang, night had fallen. I got out of the car to take a photograph from Lingkaran Sultan Hishamuddin, the seaside promenade at Port Klang, in between swatting at mosquitoes. The area was pitch black. There wasn't a single street lamp along the road.

Port Klang is located about 6 kilometers to the southwest of Klang town, and 38 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. The development of Port Klang was initiated by Sir Frank Swettenham, the British Resident of Selangor who administered the state from September 1882 until 1 July, 1896, when it was promoted to be the first Resident General of the Federated Malay States. He received a knighthood from Queen Victoria in 1897.

The railway track from Kuala Lumpur to Klang, completed in September 1886, was extended to the estuary of the Klang River, at the initiation of Frank Swettenham. Here, a port was developed. 15 years later, in 1901, the port was named Port Swettenham in his honour. On 1 July 1963, the Port Swettenham Authority was established. Some years later, Port Swettenham was renamed Port Klang. Today the port at Port Klang comprises Northport, Southpoint and Westport.
