Visit, Discover & Enjoy Port Dickson is created to help you plan your visit to Port Dickson, a popular seaside resort town in Negeri Sembilan. Port Dickson is located 32km from Seremban and 60km from Kuala Lumpur.

Port Dickson started life as a small town for the production of charcoal. For a while, it was also called Arang, meaning "coal". It was also called Tanjong Arang as well as Tanjong. The area gained prominence during the colonial era, when the British used it as a port. A railway line was built between 1887 and 1891. The line connected it to the tin-mining areas. The British then gave the town a new name, Port Dickson, after the officer in charged - some claim that it was named after Sir John Frederick Dickson in 1899.

Today Port Dickson has evolved into a major beach destination, and an escape for folks from Kuala Lumpur over the weekend. Among the beaches at Port Dickson include Si Rusa, Teluk Kemang, Tanjung Tuan, and smaller stretches including Teluk Pelandok, Teluk Kubur and Kampung Sungai Sekawang.
