PORT DICKSON | Negeri Sembilan

Port Dickson had always been the favourite beach retreat to KLites as it used to be the nearest nice beach to the city. It also used to be the favourite amongst the British during the colonial days. Rich tycoons used to built their retreat mansions along the famed beaches of Port Dickson.

But the insurgence of tourist in the 80s had made Port Dickson dirty. In the last decade.....the govt had been painstakingly restoring PD to its former glory. The past few years saw the uptrend in city folks buying up beach-fronting residentials there.

I took these photographs from the plane on my way back from Hong Kong (27th July 2004). The plane was flying quite low and its like 5 mins before touching down at KLIA

The water chalet visible there is one of Port Dickson's top resort - Avillion Resort. Stayed there before and it is SUPERB!

The white mansion with extensive grounds that seems to be the epicentre of the resort is actually on a separate property (it had an impressive double arched gateway entrance to the property visible in this picture) is the home to Zaitun's owner (a famous Malaysian beauty and health products brand).

Cool! Thanks for those pics. Looks like it doesn't have that much space left for resorts. When on flight, I was also wondering what city this was until the person beside me mentioned it was PD

Well......it the weather....rather gloomy and somehow the pictures I took turned out kinda brownish

If it is really all that polluted it wouldn't have been all that famous is it?

It is true that Malaysia had got finer beach retreats than this but this ain't that bad. I'll be there this weekend!

When yousee a brown river would you say it'sa polluted river? when the fact is the brownish colour is caused by tropical silt. There is much more than one's appearance shows.

What an eye-opener... I have not been to PD in years and boy, it looks quite well-developed now... Hkskyline, those pix were taken at the Corus Paradise hotel right?

Btw, where is that Costa Rica Hotel located? Always seem to see that hotel's ad in the papers...

I am just wondering since when Corus Paradise created an artificial lagoon there ..........Was the hotel named something else before being called Corus paradise?

Hasn't that lagoon been there since ages ago? I don't think it's that recent...

If i'm not mistaken, that hotel was previously known as Delta Paradise Lagoon Resort... That probably explains the artificial lagoon, based on the name of the hotel!
