I get asked a lot of times where the best place would be for a romantic getaway, and most of the time, I always hear couples making plans to head overseas to other beaches for their holidays. Many fail to recognise the fact that local destinations are also suitable for staycations and romantic getaways. And one such place is the underrated Port Dickson. This port city is located in Negeri Sembilan, only an hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. Surrounded by the beach, Port Dickson will bring you to enjoy the intimate moment together amidst the breezy atmosphere.

You can walk together with your loved one on the perfect pristine beaches, chill out amidst the tranquil blue lagoon together, and discover the vibrant night market there! Another thing to embrace?
