Johor Bahru (JB)

Located at the southern tip of the Peninsula, Johor Bahru is the state capital of Johor Darul Takzim. JB, in short, was established in 1855 by the late Sultan Abu Bakar (the Father of Modern Johor) and now serves as the administrative and commercial center of the state.

Please visit Johor Bahru under Cities.

Batu Pahat

Batu Pahat is a regional business and conference center that is famous for its Chinese cuisine. It is also a favorite resting place for road travelers. A brief stop here should give you a chance to taste a wide range of fruits, groundnuts, and other local delicacies, as well as to buy souvenirs and curios. There are a few notable buildings, such as the Art Deco's mosque and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce building.


Located 135km from Johor Bahru, Mersing is a small fishing village whose rivers bustle with fishing boats. It is also the departure point for boats that travel between the mainland and a number of islands in the South China Sea. They include Pulau Tioman, Pulau Rawa, Pulau Besar, and Pulau Sibu. There are a number of fine seafood restaurants in Mersing, along with an impressive mosque on a hill above the town. There are some good beaches nearby, including Sri Pantai, Sekakap, Air Papan, and Panyabong. Mersing is indeed a pleasant town that makes for quite a relaxing stopover.
