Johor Bahru: What to see and do
Despite her current standing as the nation’s second largest city after Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru has only recently stirred from her status as a gateway to Malaysia’s various attractions like Cameron Highlands, Butterworth, Malacca, and the capital herself. Unlike her bustling city-neighbour Singapore, Johor Bahru is a stroll past a cluster of shopping malls and hotels that sit next to quaint neighbourhoods and shop houses.
Take a stroll down Danga Bay’s waterfront which is “poised to be as scenic and enticing as Sydney’s Darling Harbour”, according to Lonely Planet. Claiming the honour of being the state’s first residential and recreational park district, the coast-side destination hosts the Danga City Mall shopping centre, the Danga Cruise 8 triple-decker, and a fun park which comes alive with the star-lit skies and gusts of sea breeze.
Consider the menagerie that is the Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple, as you step off Jalan Tun Abdul Razak and into the quietly-glittering interiors of one of Tebrau’s oldest Hindu temples. Guided by the polished surfaces of the sacred grounds, your exploration of this unassuming sanctuary leads you to her prized centrepiece that is Lord Shiva’s lotus. Intricately-designed with prayer beads from Nepal, the former shelter-turned-pilgrim’s sanctuary was said to be inspired from a glass artwork of a Thai wat which was visited by the Guru Bhagawan Sittar.
Riding on the commercial wave which comes with the transformation of the Johor Bahru Central Business District, the theme parks of Legoland, Hello Kitty Land, and Little Big Club offer a bevy of thrilling rides just outside of Johor Bahru. Home to the interactive attractions of the first international theme park in Malaysia, Legoland houses MINILAND, the action-packed LEGO TECHNIC, medieval LEGO KINGDOM, and more. Meanwhile, a short drive offers access to the first Sanrio Hello Kitty Land established outside of Japan, with an array of iridescent displays and engaging activities to occupy fans of the infamous cat. Close by, the Little Big Club hosts six themed play zones containing many iconic characters from HIT Entertainment including Bob the Builder, Thomas and Friends, Barney, and Pingu.
