Embark on a day trip discovering the heritage and culture of Johor Bahru, the southernmost city of Peninsula Malaysia. Travel across the border with your friends or family in the comfort of your own air-conditioned vehicle to explore this city, which was once a cozy little fishing village that has now grown into a modern metropolis.
Be intrigued by the architectural design of the Abu Bakar Mosque, built in the style of English Victorian architecture resembling the British 19th-century clock towers. Immerse in the sights and sounds as you walk through the streets of Tan Hiok Nee Heritage Street. Your guide will relate the tales of the early Chinese immigrants and you also get to savor some local delights recommended by your tour guide. You will also get the access to the State Legislative Assembly Building during your tour of Kota Iskandar, Johor State Administrative Centre. All this walking will work up your appetite for a scrumptuous lunch at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. Be spoilt for choices as you enjoy a melting pot of Malaysian cuisine in the all-day dining restaurant – Makan Kitchen (or similar).
After lunch, get ready to experience the many cultural facets of Malaysian life in the Malay Cultural Village. Sway and move to a traditional Malay cultural dance interpreted with modern music. Try your hand at Teh Tarik, a Malaysian-style milk-tea or bring home your own Malaysian-style Batik painting at the Batik Printing Workshop.
