Port Dickson started life as a humble charcoal producing town, but in recent times it has turned into a thriving and popular beach destination. 
This jewel of a destination is just 60km from Kuala Lumpur, meaning it is a popular destination for city slickers looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Indeed, many of them own holiday homes in the area. It also means that the city is readily accessible for anyone who is visiting this exquisite area, it is actually just a one hour drive to the world renowned city. 
But don’t go jumping for a rental car too quickly, because there is plenty to do and see in this picturesque holiday destination. 
Naturally being near the coast, the area has a great abundance of beaches, with all types and levels of beauty. Teluk Kemang Beach is a popular beach for the locals, calm clear waters and beautiful golden sandy beaches, it is the perfect scene for a relaxing sunbathe and a frolic in the ocean. It is also a great place for water sports, the beach side is well stocked with exciting water based activities to hold your attention all day. 
While you’re at a beach, the one at Tanjung Tuan to be exact, why don’t you try the thrilling climb up the historic local lighthouse. Not only is it an amazing example of human engineering, keeping our oceans safe, but it also offers amazing views across the bay and beyond. 
Finally after a great day at the beach, perhaps a relaxing massage should be considered, there is only one place to attend. The Thai odyssey is a famous massage parlour and is always reviewed well, thanks to their experienced experts in massage comfort, just be sure to book your slot well in advance. 
So you’ve swum and relaxed, now it is time to sleep. Fortunately Port Dickson has a myriad of hotels, ranging in all qualities and prices for you to choose from. Below is a small selection of hotels from Traveloka.com, to give you an idea of what to expect.

Ilham Resort Port Dickson

Batu 10, Tanjung Biru | Si Rusa, Port Dickson 71050

This is a high end resort and you get what you pay for. Spacious rooms and the highest quality possible, the hotel even provides a viewing tower, so you can enjoy the amazing views it has to offer. An amazing pool and brilliantly stocked gymnasium, all you could want on your resort holiday. 
An Australian franchise brand which aims to serve you authentic Australian style food incorporating a diverse range of high quality dishes using fresh and premium ingredients and made daily on the premises. Pros of having Jamaica blue is that it is now close to you which doesn't require you to stress about spending your money on a flight to Australia and this is as close as you can get to having meals like the Aussies.


Their house blend and single origin coffee all the way from Jamaica is one not to miss as well. 

Their house blend is well extracted and perfectly frothed and poured with really adorable latte art. 
A sip of my cuppa latte (RM11.50) and I was over the moon. It was perfect for a mild coffee drinker like me as I love it a little less acidic and has a tad bit of a chocolatey and nutty flavour in it. 


However, if you aim to have a coffee which body is a bit more stronger,bolder and acidic,do order their single origin long black. That will definitely give u a bit of a kick anytime of the day. 


Before you start going, oh this is just another brunch place. 

Please do not doubt the outlook of the establishment as I personally really am impressed with the food and drink selections here. 
This would most likely be a go to place for breakfast, lunch or maybe even dinner as portions are well worth and I personally would pay for food that taste good and has a lot of thoughts and effort put into it. 


House made potato cakes with smoked salmon and hollandaise (RM12.90).  Having just my first bite of this and I could assure you  my tastebuds were definitely extremely delighted. The flavours of the smoke salmon and hollandaise is already a match made in heaven and it compliments each other so well. The additional natural sweetness from the caramelised onions and that extra soft and a tad bit of chewy texture from the potato really lifted up the whole context of the dish. A savoury dish which is reasonably priced and definitely worth every penny in my opinion. 


Thai chicken noodle salad( RM 11.90). A refreshing healthy combination of fresh and crunchy capsicums and greens, blanched baby bok choy, cashews and an Asian-style dressing served over a generous portion of rice vermicelli. A well balanced meal for those who savour the feeling of a light yet satisfying meal. 


Sourdough crumpets with hazelnut chocolate and mixed berries ( RM17.50). 


Who needs pancakes and waffles anymore when there’s crumpets. A griddle cake made from flour and yeast. This was served fresh and hot off the griddle and smothered with luscious hazelnut chocolate and a handful of refreshing berries. A decadent breakfast worth waking up to however do eat it as soon as it gets on your table to obtain maximum satisfaction(texture wise). 


Satiate your palate with these sumptuous meals and if you happen to be around the area, they do have happy hour promotion from 5pm-8pm daily too.

A new Korean franchised bingsu has just landed its second outlet here in Selangor, which happens to be situated in the heart of Damansara.
A warm and cosy atmosphere makes it an ideal spot for workaholics and business meetings.
Also, a segregated Section with kid-friendly items makes this place a perfect family/friends get together over numerous cups of coffee and snacks or perhaps even a venue for a private event.









Bingsu. A sweet and decadent summer treat. 
The best part about having Bingsu here in Malaysia is that we get summer all year round.
This makes bingsu the ideal go to heat cooler anytime of the day or week.


Matcha bingsu (RM16.80)

Both portion served generously with all natural ingredients and very uniquely executed. I love that they incorporate the respective flavours into the ice before shaving it as to retain its optimum flavours.

Not your ordinary Bingsu you can get much around town.
Their Bingsu are cool, soft like cotton and smooth to the tongue. Leaning towards a milkier flavor with a fun chewy texture of their in house made Mochi made it a pleasurable journey for my taste buds with various texture when eaten altogether.



 Soymilk Bingsu




However I would personally enjoy it more if they had an additional bit of crunch to go with it.
On a side note; their matcha bingsu is perfect for those who do not fancy matcha that is too concentrated or bitter.


 A famous Korean style toast (RM13.50) with Korean rice cake which is nutritious and easily digested called Injulmi as its filling is drizzled lusciously with honey and topped with bits of crushed peanuts and almond and sieved generously with Soymilk powder.

The combination of taste and texture for both sure did excite my taste buds.
With that being said, If you feel extra adventurous, do give their red bean latte a go. 







Their latte (RM11.90) was well worth my money with it being portioned to almost twice the amount of an average cup of coffee you get in other restaurants and cafes. Their 100% Arabica coffee sure paired really well with their toasts.


 Next up, a red bean cheese toast (RM13.50), that has a unique blend of sweet and savory. Doesn't seem convincing at first but trust me, be adventurous and you'd be surprise with the outcome.



 A day well spent with great company and definitely a plus having these delectable treats to compliment my time well :)
