This night market in the centre of Johor Bahru, along Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, Jalan Sengget and spilled over to adjacent streets, is known locally as 'pasar karat' or flea market.

Renaissance Johor Bahru

Opened just this year in April, Renaissance Johor Bahru, one of the newest hotels in town, is owned by Marriott International, Inc.

Tanjung Piai

I may not have been to many places in life but THE most significant place that I have been to thus far is Tanjung Piai (pronounced: Pi-Ai) in Johor, Malaysia. It is the southernmost tip of mainland Asia Continent. You know, the land mass that we know of as "Asia" that spans from Russia in ... continue reading »

Air Masin Village

Whilst in Johor, one of the places that we visited was Kukup in Pontian, Johor. No, we did not cross over the Kukup island to visit the Johor National Park due to time constraints but even so, Kukup Laut itself has so much to offer its visitors. Kukup reminds me of Pangkor Island in Perak ... continue reading »
