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 […]

KOMTAR Johor Bahru City Centre (JBCC), Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

KOMTAR Johor Bahru City Centre (JBCC) Mall is next door to the Johor Bahru City Square Mall (108 Jln Wong Ah Fook, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia), and is the newest shopping mall in the centre of Johor Bahru. The mall seems to me mainly focussed on high-end clothing. The mall is very brand new […]

Johor Bahru City Square, 108 Jln Wong Ah Fook, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

OK, I am not a big fan of shopping, or of shopping malls (if I had to go shopping I would far rather spend my time poking around in a small shop or a market), but even I will admit that Malaysia tends to do big shopping malls very well, and two great examples can […]

In search of the Johor Bahru Botanic Gardens

By on May 31, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

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 […]

The Zoo, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 1 of 2

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 […]

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 3 of 4

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia is rather odd. It is clear that a lot of money has been spent setting up the place, and some areas seem to be very well established as judged by the maturity of the trees and plants, however, other areas seem new, and already rather run down. It looks […]

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 2 of 4

In one section of the Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia is an orchid garden that was clearly originally set up as a ‘pay-to-enter’ venture as there was an abandoned ticket booth, however, sadly, the area has now been run down, there are no tickets to buy, and very few orchids grown. Below are photos […]

Hutan Bandar, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 1 of 4

Well, Hutan Bandar park in Johor Bahru was a bit of an odd find. I can’t believe I have lived in the area for over two years and only just found this place. It is also a bit, shall we say, weird. I am not sure what the park is trying to be – play […]
