About Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru profile image.

Johor Bahru acts as a border to Singapore and is ranked as the 3rd largest city in Peninsular Malaysia. Johor Bahru has many attractions catering for both families and solo travelers, all reflecting the multiculturalism within Johor.

Many of the bus stops sit opposite the City Square which links up with other parts of the city. Travelers departing from JB Sentral or City Square can opt to board a bus as late as 11pm with fares which are relatively cheap.  However, buses can be rather inconsistent; hence it is advised to board a bus early in the morning as it’s most consistent during this time relative to the rest of the day.

As Johor Bahru is quite vast, travelers may often have to travel further than expected. In such cases, travelers might want to get to Larkin Terminal, the main terminal in Johor Bahru. Departures from here are quite frequent commencing hourly, at times in half an hour as well.

As traffic can be quite congested in the city, travelers may want to move about Johor Bahru on foot, a preferable option for sightseers.
