14tn May 2007 - I went to Port Dickson for three days attending a meeting reviewing back ISO procedures for the Ministry. It was splendid. I stayed at Corus Paradise Resort and the hotel was great except for the food.
Looking back, I think Port Dickson have a potential to be one of the best tourist attraction among locals who stayed at Klang Valley. The beaches was great and you have to give credits to the state government for transforming Port Dickson to what it is today. The only thing that Port Dickson lack is a large Mall or shopping complexes which can offer bowling or cinemas.
I believe if the Putrajaya decided to buit a ERL from KLIA to Port Dickson connecting KL Sentral and Port Dickson town that will be a hit. Booming the locals tourism and mushrooming the much needed extra-shopping complexes in Port Dickson. The only hinderence that makes Port Dickson unattractive to the Klang Valley dwellers is that there is no fast-public transport connecting Port Dickson and Kuala Lumpur.
As for myself, I enjoyed being on the sandy beaches of Port Dickson. Cheerio!
