Malaysia's Emerging City

The 2nd largest city in Malaysia, Johor Bahru is busy establishing its own identity separate from the capital of Kuala Lumpur. After years of existing as an important industrial hub and gateway to Singapore, new building developments and cheap shopping are attracting international tourists to Eurasia’s southernmost city.

Johor Bahru, sometimes shortened to JB, has a varied assortment of religious and royal buildings within its centre. The Istana Besar (Great Palace) overlooks the Straits of Johor, Sultan Abu Bakar State Mosque reveals old colonial influences with its Victorian architecture, and there is the Hindu glass temple, Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman.

Not just a transit point anymore, Johor has recently boosted its tourist attractions resulting in the building of 2 new theme parks, Legoland Malaysia and Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park. Many Singaporeans make the journey across the Johor-Singapore Causeway to take advantage of these new facilities and shop at malls like the City Square Shopping Complex.

Senai International Airport services domestic tourism and some international flights. Booking.com has a wide range of hotels to help you plan for that city trip, family holiday or business meeting.
