You might know that Thistle not only has hotels in the UK, but also in sunnier spots such as Malaysia. Today we’d like to introduce you to some of the things to do and see while you’re staying with us at Port Dickson.

Port Dickson is a beautiful resort located only an hour away from Kuala Lumpur and is the only beach in Negeri Sembilan. Famous for its delicious seafood and golden sands, there’s certainly enough things to do there among sunbathing and enjoying good food. A great place for nature lovers and alike!


Tanjung Tuan Light House is the historical building built by the Portuguese in the 16th century.  It was built as guild for the ships that pass by the Straits of Malacca and is still in use today! Located on a hilltop, prepare comfortable shoes for a good hike up to enjoy the views of the Straits. Take in the beauty of the flora and fauna as it is also a conservation area.










Pantai Cahaya Bulan is a recreational park overlooking the beach side for the visitors to enjoy their picnic in Port Dickson. The place is also famous with its landscape greatly suitable for  wedding photos.



Army Museum was an idea which began in 1989 and only officiated by the then 12th King of Malaysia on 28 June 2005.  It chronicles accurate information via visuals, sketches, maps, audio visuals and other tools of the Royal Malaysian Army. Step into time and go back in history in this museum.
