Port Dickson (PD to locals) is one of the most accessible seaside destination from Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley. It is located in the state of Negeri Sembilan in Peninsular Malaysia, situated about 32 km west of Seremban and 90 km from Kuala Lumpur, just an hour drive from KL which makes it accessible for city folks to escape from the hustle and bustle of KL.
PD’s beaches are not confined in just one area, the whole stretch of the road runs along the coastline. It is well-served by hotels, rest houses, transient apartment units and condominiums.
The port was built in 1847 to control the lucrative tin trade in the area. In the vicinity of the port are the remains of an old place and a royal burial ground.
