Day 1 - Arrival at Grand Lexis Port Dickson
I went for a short getway with my friends to Port Dickson in Malaysia. We selected Grand Lexis as our place to stay. It was around 3 hours drive from Singapore.
We chose to stay in the Water Villa.
The toilet which is very spacious.
The best thing about Grand Lexis is that there is a swimming pool right in our room. We chose to stay on the second level where the pool is outside. If you choose the first level, the swimming pool is indoors.
View from the multi-storey carpark in Grand Lexis.
The hotel offers some activities like sumo wrestling, archery, beach volley ball etc.
Beautiful seaview of the water villas we are staying in.
Lunch at a nearby coffeeshop.
Dinner at a nearby Seafood Restaurant. The food is fresh, delicous and value for money. All the below for around 141 ringgit.

We visited the tallest building in Taiwan which is the Taipei 101. The queue was pretty long. We queued for around 20 minutes to take the elevator up the tower.
City view from Taipei 101.
Guess what this big pendulum is? It is actually for neutralizing the effects of the typhoon. When typhoon hits Taipei 101, this pendulum will sway and neutralize the vibrations.
At the rooftop of Taipei 101, this is another beautiful night view of Taipei city.
