Some places to visit and things to do in Johor Bahru:

The Johor Zoo

The Johor Zoo dates back to 1928. First of many zoos built in Southeast Asia. One of the most interesting places in Johor Bahru, it houses over a hundred diverse animal species. The zoo also has a large lake where you can pedal boats, relax at scenic picnic spots, and let your children enjoy the playgrounds.

To reach the Johor Zoo from Singapore, take bus No. 170. The bus will take you to the Larkin Bus Terminal. From there, you will need to pass through Johor Bahru Immigration. Then, you can take a taxi or rent a car to reach the zoo.

The Danga Bay

An interesting visit to Johor is Danga Bay. It stretches along 25km of scenic waterfront facing the Straits of Johor. A large recreational park, a range of attractions, shopping malls and fine-dining restaurants with stunning views make it worth your time. 

Little Paris

Hold your heart—a hidden gem in Johor attractions is Little Paris. A street lined with stunning shophouses, laced with captivating facades that transport you to Paris. Stroll and enjoy shopping at high-end fashion shops, charming boutiques, coffee houses, and bakeries.

The nights glow, pretty lights illuminate the streets, and you can enjoy a walk in Paris while in Malaysia.
