Johor Bahru is located in the far south of the Malaysian Peninsula on the border of the country of Singapore. It is about 5 hours by car and 45 minutes by plane from Kuala Lumpur. There are many historic buildings such as the Prince Abu Bakr Museum and the Museum of the Arts, with many natural areas like the Abendau Rombin Park, the Kuta Tingi Falls, the Lidang Mountain, and the Merseng Village. The starting point for most of the islands around Johor Bahru is Rao Island, famous for its coral reefs. Affordable hotels and restaurants are available along brilliant sandy beaches.
