ADAT PERPATIH STATE

The Minangkabau culture, which came with the Sumatrans centuries ago, is still prevalent in the state, as can be seen in the buffalo horn-shape in the traditional headgear as well as the roofs of some buildings. In the capital of Seremban, places of interest include the Sri Menanti Royal Museum, a wooden structure built without nails or screws and the picturesque Lake Gardens. The Ulu Bendol Recreational Park at the foot ot'Angsi Hill offers eco-tourism activities, while Port Dickson while the Blue Lagoon are popular for beach and water pursuits. Tanjung Tuan (Cape Rachado) with its lighthouse is famous as a, sanctuary for migratory birds, and on a clear day, one can see Sumatra across the Straits of Malacca.

POrt Dickson

Port Dickson is very popular with Klang Valley residents as a weekend retreat for those seeking a temporary escape from the hustle and bustle of a hectic city life.
The 18km stretch of beach on the coast of Port Dickson district is one of the few stretches of mangrove-free, sandy beaches found on the west coast of the peninsula. When people talk about Port Dickson, or PD as it is popularly known, they are most likely referring to the beach at Port Dickson town itself - a busy spot that attracts picnicker, swimmers, and those seeking simpler pleasures of a beachside stopover. But a short travel down the coast will bring you to one of the other beaches in Port Dickson district such as Teluk Kemang, Blue Lagoon and Cape Rachado.
