Wow kids in the Special Advisory Board? Yes! 10 kids to be inducted into special Advisory Board with a mission to make children’s stays at the resort an unforgettable experience. Malaysia has for decades been a holiday haven for families. This is in part due to its appeal to both young and old alike. However, Thistle Port Dickson Resort has taken a bid to improve its offerings to young ones and to make their experience at the resort a truly unforgettable one.
