#Throwback Port Dickson Getaway – Hotel Review

ACCOMMODATION

Went for a short ‘first wedding anniversary’ in 2015 (yes this is a ‘throwback’) to Port Dickson. Just me, my husband and of course our son who was 2 months old that time! Stayed at Lexis Port Dickson, booked via Agoda. There’s a choice between staying at the water chalet or the main building/tower sea view. Since our son was still so small and we’ve read that the buggy might be a bit slow and late (also the weather can be quite hot) we decided to book a room at the tower sea view. Room is spacious, with 1 king and 1 queen bed and the view was great! However if you would like to swim and relax on the beach, this hotel might not be the choice for you as you will need to drive out to the beach.

Basically we didn’t really do much or go out much. Most of the time we were in our room, relaxing (and baby was sleeping most of the time and the weather was hot!) However we did stop by at the Upside Down House Gallery Port Dickson before heading back to Kuala Lumpur.

ACCOMMODATION

Went to Melaka for a short getaway (3 days 2 nights) and stayed at Bayview Hotel Melaka. My comment? Spacious room (deluxe) with jacuzzi! Limited choices of food for breakfast though but acceptable. Nice location. Not sure the attraction is within walking distance since we drive there and also drive to the places we wanted to visit.

INTERESTING PLACES & THINGS TO DO

Since my husband & I have visited the ‘usual’ attractions, example The Stadhuys, A Famosa or Porta de Santiago, etc. and this time we have a 14 months old infant with us, we decided not to go to those places (we will wait until our son is bigger and can understand better). This time around we only visited few places (to shop :p). If you would like to read on other attraction, visit my previous post as mentioned above.

  • Freeport A’Famosa Outlet Village – offers over 70 fashion, sport and accessories brands in some 180,000 sq.ft. The outlet is set in an open air mall featuring a lake, fountains, carousel and windmill with architecture loosely themed on Malacca’s Dutch heritage. Brands open at the centre include Nike, Cotton On, Esprit, Puma, G2000, Carlo Rino, Clarks and many more. Description and images are taken from their website http://www.freeportafamosa.com/

  • The SHORE shopping gallery – a shopping complex with few other attraction especially for kids such as Oceanarium, 6D Motion Ride, Toy Museum. The Sky tower is also located here – http://skytower.theshoremelaka.com/

  • Jonker Street – a place to be at night! Street market with interesting stores. Also don’t forget to buy some Nyonya pineapple tarts!

FOODS

The only special place we went to for dinner was Ee Ji Ban Chicken Rice Ball Restaurant. The food was delicious and Halal so no worries to Muslims! Must try!

Airbnb – Welcome to the world of trips!

airbnb_logo_detail

Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodation around the world — online or from a mobile phone or tablet.

Basically Airbnb acts like Agoda, Expedia, AirAsia Go, etc. except it is meant for homestay instead of hotels, and it enables people to list or rent short-term lodging in residential properties. So instead of staying in a hotel, you will be staying at someone’s house! How cool is that! Airbnb is a good option when you are traveling to a place where the hotel rent is high.
