Senai International Airport (JHB), Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Back at Senai International Airport (JHB) waiting for a flight over to Kuching in East Malaysia. For this trip I’m flying AirAsia and this was a first as not only did I print the boarding pass, but also printed the baggage tag. At the airport you scan your pre-printed boarding pass, you attach the bag […]

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – 2 of 2

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in Singapore is one of my favourite ways to spend time on Singapore island. The nature reserve is very close to the Johor – Singapore Causeway, and hence, once you’ve managed to get into Singapore is fairly easy to get to. I did manage to see a number of Golden Orb […]

In search of the Johor Bahru Botanic Gardens

I have seen Johor Bahru Botanic Gardens mentioned on a number of maps, and in several guidebooks, and yet I can’t find them… When I first visited Johor Bahru about three years ago I came across a list of things to do and see in JB, and on that list was the Johor Bahru Botanic […]

Visiting Johor Bahru Zoo, Johor, Malaysia – part 2 of 2

Johor Bahru Zoo also has Tigers, Lions, Bears, and Chimps. These animals had better living conditions than the animals near the entrance to the zoo (see The Zoo, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 1 of 2), but they were still not ideal, and I did feel sorry for the animals. The tigers had a […]

I was looking for the Johor Bahru botanical gardens when I came across Johor Zoo, Jalan Gertak Merah, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. Personally, I am not a great fan of zoos, but having spent an hour trying to find the botanical gardens I thought I would have a look at the zoo instead. The […]

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 4 of 4

Finally, the last part of Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia I visited was the Taman Ekologi section (Ecology section). This was possibly the weirdest part of the park, and possibly suggests what is happening with the park… The walkway over to the main building looked promising. But as I got closer it was obvious […]
