Johor Bahru City Square: There are malls as like in every city square. But if you are big on food, you will get great varieties of restaurants and eateries here. From traditional taste like Teochew Chengdol to Cantonese, Taiwanese and Korean options.
Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque: Lovely grand mosque where you can appreciate old colonial English architectural beauty. It is set in a beautiful park-like location overlooking the Strait of Johor right over to Singapore.
Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple: From outside you cannot guess and looks like just another temple. The interiors differentiate it from others. Mad of zillions of glass pieces, arranged intricately and adorned with chandeliers, this temple is worth a look.
Johor Old Chinese Temple: One of the earliest temple in Johor Bahru erected by early Chinese settlers about 130 years ago. It is a must go place if you happen to come in Johor Bahru especially during Chinese New Year and the Ching Gay period. Decorated with traditional lanterns and Ming architecture, the temple houses 5 Chinese deities revered by various Chinese clans.
Pulai Waterfall: The hill is beautiful, you need 3hours approx. to climb uphill and 2.5 hours to climb down. The waterfall is about 15-20 minutes’ walk from the base of the hill. The fall is small but the water is cool. You can enjoy a picnic or a dip in the fresh water wall.
