Also simply known as Larkin Stadium, it is the city’s main football stadium and the home ground of the famed Johor Darul Ta’zim F.C. – “JDT” team. Take a stroll and a lot of pictures at Dataran Bandaraya Johor Bahru along with the locals and other visitors. If you’re lucky, you may be able to attend one of the events that are held frequently at the venue including bazaars, concerts, and many more.
