Port Dickson, or PD to locals, is a district and coastal town in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Port Dickson is also a beach resort destination at Negeri Sembilan in Malaysia, about 90km south from Kuala Lumpur and 30km away from Seremban. From PD's town center, a coastline of warm beaches and calm seas as well as amazing view can be seen along the journey towards Malacca, ending at the tip of Cape Rachado (Tanjung Tuan). Port Dickson began history as a small Malay village inhabited by fishermen and traders. It used to be first known as 'Arang', which means coal, a reference to a carbon mine in the area. A British official named Sir Frederic Dickson turned Arang into a port for transporting the rich tin ore deposits from Sungai Ujong to Klang. The town was renamed Port Dickson (after the official) and became a busy, railway-linked harbour. The most popular beach zones along this stretch are Teluk Kemang, Blue Lagoon, Bagan Pinang and Pantai Cahaya Negeri, along with major hotels, resorts and apartments that offer budget and luxury family accommodation.
