Port Dickson

The coastal town of Port Dickson (PD) is a popular holiday destination where many local Malaysians go to for a short weekend break. During colonial times the English colonials discovered this location as a splendid getaway from the hot and humid Kuala Lumpur. Sir Dickson was in command at the time, which explains the current name of the town. Nowadays the town is especially known for its great beaches along the Malacca Straits. There are numerous hotels and guesthouses for tourists. It can get quite busy during school and public holidays and other festivals. We once visited the town during Ramadan and all the hotels and resorts were packed. Make sure you make your reservations beforehand to get the best price. It is usually more crowded in weekends compared to weekdays.
