Port Dickson is found along the wondrous west coast of Malaysia. This is one of the quieter ports and is certainly nowhere near as busy as the nearby Langkawi Island. This makes it a great getaway for families or those looking for some quiet time. Transport in the area is either via rental car or taxi, with a few public buses also running their routes. It is too large to explore on foot alone but the wealth of activities at each area ensures that you don’t need to spend the whole day travelling to have some fun. Let’s delve closer into what Port Dickson has waiting for us.
At roughly four hours drive from Singapore to this Port, many people decide to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy holiday by disappearing to this relaxing area for a day or two.

Accommodation provided from within the Berumbun forest reserve places you direct in the topics. The villas are secluded and many paths twist and wind through the undergrowth, leading to everything from the trickle of the stream through the jungle, to the jungle waterfall itself.
If you follow Coastal Road through Port Dickson, you will find some rather amazing beach resorts. The comfort and convenience which these fine places to stay offers is unmatched, but the rooms typically cost more than those lying further inland away from the waters.
