JB has undergone major changes since its foundation in 1855 by Temenggong Daeng Ibrahim. Despite these changes, efforts have been done to preserve the city’s historical and heritage sites that up until now, these sites are intact and now serve as attractions for both foreign and local tourists. Be charmed by this city’s pleasant mix of history and heritage with modern times!
Johor State’s largest city is the home of numerous parks, temples, clubs, museums and even shopping centers making it an excellent tourist destination in Malaysia. In JB, you’ll never run out of places to visit and fun activities to do! Its night spots are plenty and lively that it is not uncommon to see many Singaporean cross over for the night entertainment.
