Driving up North... An exciting experience!

It was my first time driving up North to Malaysia from Singapore with my friends. It was very exciting and a memorable experience for all of us. We have planned it well and decided to drive up to Port Dickson and Kuala Lumpur during the Chinese New Year Holidays. It was great to be away from home once in a while.

Port Dickson - A Place To Relax

Port Dickson is situated in Negeri Sembilan and it's well-known for the its beaches. The place is a favourite for the city dwellers of KL and Singapore due to its miles of golden beaches and a wide range of accomodation. It was a great place for a relaxing weekend.

    Wow! What a destination. Thanks for the detailed information. I've never been to Port Dickson before but from the review given, I will probably go to another resort somewhere there or I would do a return trip to Rantau Abang to watch turtle laying eggs.

    I just returned from the Avillion. The problem I have with the place is bird poo all over the boardwalk. I was walking around barefoot and then squish! Yuck!
