Of Humble Origins

Port Dickson, or PD as it’s affectionately known to residents, is a seaside district in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Rich with history, Port Dickson came from humble beginnings as a small town that produced charcoal but quickly rose to prominence as a port through the intervention of the British. PD has since evolved into a popular tourist attraction in Malaysia with a population of about 500,000 people.
