Port Dickson, an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, is where the city folk arrive during weekends and holidays for some sun and pristine sandy beaches. The township has several premier hotels including the 5-star Avillion and Lexis Hibiscus as well as many seaside resorts like Sunshine Bay, Eagle Ranch, Glory Bay and Duta Villa Gulf Resort.
Port Dickson also has several interesting destinations for culture buffs – the Armed Forces Museum, Lukut Fort and Museum, Seri Menanti Royal Museum, Lighthouse at Cape Rachado and the colourful Wan Loong Chinese Temple. Other places of interest are the Tanjung Tuan Forest Reserve, Raptor Bird Sanctuary and the Sungai Linggi Firefly Sanctuary.
Like we said, there’s something for the whole family and a weekend will hardly do justice to Port Dickson.
