AB XXVIII at Avillion Admiral Cove, Port Dickson

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011


Hi everyone!

Due to last year’s highly positive feedback, NUSAS will be again organizing a 3D2N return trip to Avillion Admiral Cove, Port Dickson, during the holidays from 10th Dec to 12th Dec, 2011!

This time round, our trip is offered at a more affordable price of $196 ($186 for members and ex-Astrobashers)! We will be observing a lunar eclipse, and along with Winter Sky and the Geminids meteor shower, the stargazing experience will be much more wonderful than what one could have gotten in Singapore.

Port Dickson is a popular holiday destination located in Peninsular Malaysia. It takes just over an hour by car to travel from Port Dickson to Kuala Lumpur along the North-South expressway. Shielded by the peninsula from the Northeast Monsoon, Port Dickson will be one of the few locations with a higher chance of clear skies during the wet season and is open all year round. Join us for mesmerizing night sky, fun activities on the beach, and shopping sprees at KL!

Register with us here right now (registration is on first-come-first-serve basis) – and be sure to check our AstroBash website at regularly for more updates! Should you have any enquiries, please contact us at, or He Miao at 97917019.

Thank you, and we hope to see you at Port Dickson this December!

Clear skies,
