Located at the southern tip of the West Malaysian peninsular, Johor Bahru (JB) is a city of both commercial and cultural importance. It is not only valued for its growth as an economic powerhouse since its founding in the 19th century, but also for serving as the Malaysian portal to the neighbouring nation of Singapore. Recent years have seen JB’s rise as a popular tourist destination—which comes as no surprise, as the city is the capital of the state of Johor and is textured by an ever-increasing number of attractions.
