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.

THE HOLIDAY

Cherating is a nice beach located in the state of Pahang. The latest visit there (actually 2 years ago, 2010), I only stayed within Clubmed area and didn’t really go out. However I won’t really complain since it is such a nice place to be.

Within Clubmed itself, there are a lot of activities that can be done. A lot of facilities such as spa, gym, swimming pool, playground, squash & tennis court, archery, golf, mini cinema, sports area, and trapeze are available! During night time, there will be different entertainment & performances, which will be performed by the staffs themselves at the theater. FUN FUN FUN!! 😀

If going to the beach is more of your thing, don’t worry! They have their own private beach so there’s not much of a crowd. If you prefer a more crowded beach, go can still go out! 😉

THE GETAWAY

Went for a short getaway for 3 days 2 nights with dearest family to Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. A nice place to chill!

ACCOMMODATION

Stayed at Tiara Beach Resort. Experience staying here is not that good. My own opinion … this place is poorly maintain! However since I went there with family and there are 3 kids (not my own but my sister’s! :P) easy access to the water park is good enough. If you prefer to stay by the beach, then this is not the place to be, since you need to drive out to go to the beach.
