Port Dickson, or PD to locals, is a coastal town in Port Dickson District, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. The cities administration is run by the Port Dickson Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Port Dickson (MPPD)).
This small town used to produce charcoal and therefore was called Arang (Malay: "charcoal") - there used to be a carbon mine at the first mile of the coast road (hence named Jalan Pantai) - but it was later developed as a small port by the British during the Straits Settlement period. Port Dickson was also known as Tanjung (Malay: "cape"). The oldest shophouses were the four situated presently at Jalan Lama.
