Port Dickson

Yesterday, we went to Port Dickson (PD) which is located in the state of Negeri Sembilan in Peninsular Malaysia. The main purpose of our one day trip to Port Dickson was going to visit the Lukut Fort and Museum, the Army Museum, PD waterfront and took a look at the beaches there.

Our first destination was Lukut Fort and Museum. It is a notable historical site in Lukut, Port Dickson. Here we found the site of an old fort which  was built in 1847 by Raja Jumaat to protect the valuable tin trade. The Lukut museum is located at the foot of the hill, the admission is free. At the museum, we had an opportunity to learn more about the history of Lukut.

Later, we headed to PD waterfront. I liked this place. There were contemporary shop lots along the seafront boulevard, with recreational parks fronting the promenade walk. The scene and environment there looked very nice. We found McDonald, StarBucks, Kenny Roger and other fine dining restaurants were located there. Since my kids are fans of McDonald, we then had our lunch at McDonald.

Very soon, we headed to the Army Museum (known locally as Muzium Tentera Darat). That was the place where my kids never said bored. After all, this is one of the most renowned attractions in Port Dickson. My kids were more interested in the outdoor exhibits and the communist tunnel.

After visiting the Army Museum, we were going for a drive along Jalan Pantai. We visited several beaches, but I especially loved a beach named Tanjung Biru (Blue Lagoon Beach). The beach was not crowded, and the beautiful scene formed a good environment  that we had a relaxing evening there.......

Wow, PD has changed a lot since I was there! We stayed there for a few days for a beach break. I love Malaysia and can't wait to go back (My mum grew up there and still has family there).

Best wishes and thanks for sharing your post!
