It’s 2022, and the beach and resorts are no longer the only places that you can visit in Port Dickson. There are lots of other places that are worth much more than the PD beach. Here are the top 11 fun & new things to do in Port Dickson other than the 🏖️beach.
A new attraction just opened at Port Dickson on 31 August 2022. It is the largest maze in Malaysia after IKEA. If you enjoy getting lost, then this life-sized maze is for you! You can challenge yourself to solve the ever-winding maze, and if you need a 💡hint, you can climb up the observatory deck to observe the routes.
Besides the maze, there are also never before seen sculptures and art installations. They are so unique that you won’t be able to resist a selfie with them. Some of them have mind-bending effects that can’t be captured in just a single 📸photograph, and you’ll end up marvelling at them for a good few minutes.

A funfair is a place where millennials and generation x will find it to be nostalgic, while gen z and gen alpha will find it "vintage". It is sad that the fun fair is no longer as popular as it used to be. But if you look at the positive side, it’s not as crowded as it used to be anymore. At Funfair Teluk Kemang, you’ll find a variety of rides brightly lit with colourful LED lights.
Of course, you can't miss the game stalls. This is where you can try your hand at different games to win the grand prize, which is usually a gigantic plush toy that only the main character in a movie can win. Even so, winning a smaller prize is not that hard, and that’s what makes many people play the games despite not being the main character in a movie. So don’t forget to include Funfair Teluk Kemang in your Port Dickson itinerary so that you can introduce your kids to some of your favourite childhood memories.

Then in the building, you can find various exhibits like rifles, cannon maintenance equipment, ceremonial swords and many more.
Army Museum Port Dickson makes a perfect place for 👧👦kids to visit due to its educational exhibits. The entrance is free, and if you see a donation box, please donate. This will help this historical museum to keep up with its maintenance so that it can continue to educate the public.

If you are interested in the historical bits of Port Dickson, you have to visit Kota Lukut. What is left today is the remnant of the Lukut Fort in the form of foundation stones and some ruined walls. The fort is perched on top of a hill with a scenic view, whereas at the foot of the hill is the museum. You'll need to climb up the hill to see the fort remnants, but it can be pretty challenging for those with limited mobility.
The 2-storey museum has four display sections and showcases the history of Lukut, mainly on tin mining. There are also a lot of antiques and replicas on display, including customs and traditions of Adat Perpatih and antiquities salvaged from the Dutch VOC warship Nassau, sunk in 1606 off the coast of Port Dickson. The best part of all is the free entry and parking!

Visit some ostriches at the P.D. Ostrich Show Farm. While you won’t be able to ride on any ostrich, there are ponies for you to ride. Ponies in an ostrich farm? Yes, that is because there are a variety of other animals, like 🐐goats, guinea pigs, 🐄cows, 🐔chickens, 🐇rabbits and different types of 🐦birds on the farm! In addition to that, you can feed some of the animals. Kids are going to love it.
The most surprising thing about P.D. Ostrich Show Farm is...you get to eat 🥩ostrich meat. Well, after all, this is a farm. The ostrich meat comes in the form of tasty-looking satay. However, if you want to start with something less advanced, you can try the omelettes made of ostrich eggs.
P.s: It is a must to wear 🧦socks to enter the cat enclosure.
