Port Dickson, or "PD" as it's affectionately known by the locals, is a popular R&R destination, located about 60 km, an hour's drive or so, from KL, in the state of Sembilan. It's a great place for beach relaxation or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

With its long and fairly turbulent past, Port Dickson is quite a draw also to those on the look-out for culture and history. But it's the new hotels and resorts, some more exclusive than others, that are the main tourism draw nowadays, both from surrounding areas, as well as from Singapore and, increasingly, from overseas.

There are quite a few grade-A beaches on the coast along Port Dickson and, so not surprisingly, leisure activities consist of water sports like water-skiing, canoeing, snorkeling and windsurfing.

If sailing is your game, then just head up to the Port Dickson Yacht Club, because there's plenty of choice there.

Fishing aficionados can also get their fill, since you can fish off one of the boat rentals or a kelong, which is a traditional wooden hut built on stilts, usually located just off the coast. A unique experience, because it's one of the more traditional ways of fishing in Malaysia.

Swing by the Blue Lagoon, about 15 km from Port Dickson town, for panoramic vistas of Port Dickson's photogenic surrounding inland and offshore sceneries. The Blue Lagoon is another great spot for water sports. Best of all, there's plenty of accommodation choices, as many of the hotels and resorts are located right here.

Once you're in Port Dickson, the easiest way to get around is by taxi. The taxis here don't have meters and it's useful to know that they charge per passenger. It's good to haggle a bit about the price before you decide to take a taxi, but you'll find that taxis here are relatively cheap.

That said, if you want to go really budget, then catch the coastal bus. It's not exactly zippy, but it's the most fun travel option. And it only charges a handful of RM, at most, for most destinations along its route, so it's certainly cheap.

Port Dickson has a few decent beaches, so make sure you swing by to catch up on your tanning. Or, better yet, hit 2 birds with the same stone, since there's quite a few watersports outlets that rent out kayaks, SUP boards and some sailing dinghies.

The best part of the Port Dickson stretch of beach is the cute water front bistros and local eateries. Enjoy the hang-loose ambiance and the local snacks, ideal for an after-sun session. Life's good in Port Dickson.

Whilst there isn't really a true night-life scene to speak of in Port Dickson, there are quite a few cozy neighborhoods with plenty of eateries and even some rather happening watering holes. And with the distinctly European architecture here and there, you might easily mistake these parts of Port Dickson for Amsterdam, without the grittiness of course.

Dig into a piping hot plate of authentic "mee goreng" and wash it down with a "teh tarek". After all, Cuisine is quite a major aspect of life here.

In short, never a dull moment in Port Dickson.
