Johor Bahru is situated on the tip of the Malay Peninsula and is connected to Singapore via a one-kilometer causeway. Its appeal is its numerous shopping complexes and seafood restaurants, attracting many Singaporeans on weekends. Night bazaars and street side vendors are commonplace. Malaysian cuisine is well starred while seafood is concentrated along the waterfront to the west of the center. Attractions worth visiting are the Royal Museum, the 19th century Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque and the animal park. To get there: Express buses at the Ban San Bus Terminal near Bugis subway station take you directly to Johor Bahru.
Being at Singapore gave us an opportunity to visit its nearest Asian neighbor – Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The entire trip took for only half a day and for me, that was quite all worth it. Two countries within a day? Not bad.
The weather wasn’t a bit fine on that day. The skies were cloudy and later, it began to rain. But that didn’t stop us from being greeted as we enter the neighboring country’s border: Selamat Datang Ke Malaysia (which means Welcome to Malaysia).
Our guide first took us to a Batik shop where she herself demonstrated how the textile was made. We also watched a musical performance there. There were bamboo instruments and gongs.
Then we visited an old Malayan house, much similar to the ones we have here in the Philippines. There was a cultural dance presentation too.
Our last stop was at a souvenir shop where we bought beautifully printed shirts. The designs were very Malaysian.
Johor Bahru is a place for shopping, dinning, and taking photograph. Being adjacent to Singapore, although city development speed is high, value is very good for shopping, the price is twice less than Singpore's.
