Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of Klang Valley, a 330 Km-journey down south (that takes 3 to 4 hours by driving) will lead you to a less busy township of Johor Bahru, a neighbouring companion of Singapore.
An ever growing township, the place is slower in pace unlike Klang Valley. Modelled after the Kuala Lumpur city skyline, the township is continuously undergoing gradual transformation which may eventually turn it to yet another concrete city with sparse greens.
Driving around the town is no different from Klang Valley due to the similar infrastructure.
The street food hunting experience will be easy so long as you have a GPS device and you have done your homework.
If you’re looking for the conveniences of a city, a quick check-in at the Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru Hotel is a good recommendation as it is strategically located in the heart of the city of Johor Bahru.
The rooms offered are clean, comfortably furnished, complete with basic modern amenities and good condition facilities that are conducive to meet the needs of both tourists and business travelers alike.
In the leisure time, you may explore the facilities – the gym, pool, jacuzzi, dry, wet sauna and more. However, if you do not mind there are daily broadcast of Muslim prayers every few hours throughout the day within the public vicinity of the hotel.
As for the hotel’s breakfast buffet, it comes with a variety of choices of both local and Western flavours. The buffet menu is mainly of the local flavours due to the higher influx of domestic tourists, leaving the rest with rather limited choices.
It’s a hotel suitable for family, business travelers and tourists. The staffs are friendly and accommodative. Since the hotel is located in the middle of the town, finding the hotel is easy and exploring the town on foot is convenient as well. The hotel’s availability depends on the period of the year. The usual reservation procedure can be done via the internet, telephone or walk-in.
