Johor Bahru is the capital of the state of Johor, located in the southern most part of East Malaysia and is the closest neighbour to Singapore, which is linked by a causeway. For Singaporeans who work hard in this city state, they can come to Johor Bahru to rejuvenate and recharge in a more relaxed and laid back atmosphere and culture.

Due to the strength of the Singapore dollar against the Malaysia Ringgit, which is about three times the value, spending in Johor gives Singaporeans high purchasing power. Hence, it is not surprising that many Singaporeans flock to Johor, during the weekends, to do their weekly grocery shopping and top up gasoline. If you’re planning a trip to Johor Bahru, don’t miss this list of the 8 places to stay in this fun city.

Awesome hotels in Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru offers several world-class hotels, ranging from 4-star to 5-star facilities. They are near to Singapore via the Causeway and are favourite destinations for fellow Singaporeans, for unwinding in a more relaxed culture compared to the concrete jungle of the city state. There is lots of room to drive around and explore the city and immerse oneself in the sights and local food, and it is much cheaper since the Singaporean purchasing power is better. The locals are friendly and they work hard to earn the tourist money, from their neighbours from down south.
