Sandokan, Yanez, James Brook: we are in Malaysia, land of the fearsome Pirates of Mompracem, the protagonists of the popular literary saga born from the imagination of Emilio Salgari.

Port Klang, Malaysia's main port, and one of the most important in the world for the amount of goods handled, is 38 km from the capital Kuala Lumpur. Just 6 kilometres away rises the ancient royal capital of Selangor: the City of Klang, which is well worth a visit. An Indian Ocean cruise is an opportunity to breathe the authentic Malaysian atmosphere and taste its fusion cuisine, a meeting of China, India and Malaysia with surprising results. 


Not to be missed:

• Istana Alam Shah, the Sultan Royal Palace 

• Little India, colourful Portobello East Road 

• Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Gothic architecture in tropical latitudes
