Johor Bahru

After years of being criticised as a dirty, chaotic border town, Johor’s capital city of Johor Bahru (JB for short) has been repaved and replanted and is well on the way to rebranding itself.

Most travellers skip southern Malaysia’s largest city, but for intrepid souls there’s a handful of worthwhile museums, temples and mosques, shopping and party zones. If that ain’t your thing, JB also has a Legoland, where ‘everything is awesome’.

As one of the five ‘economic zones’ of the Iskandar development project, which will radically change southern Malaysia over the next decade, JB is in for one hell of a makeover yet. The 720-hectare Danga Bay area, 5km from the Causeway, is poised to be a financial and commercial centre. Work on the development began in 2006 and is expected to be completed in 2025. For now, Danga Bay is a sprawl of construction.
