About Travel to Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru is somewhere that all overland travellers or from Singapore need to pass through. It’s a border town that’s busy as a consequence of the high volume of people and goods passing between the two countries.

About Johor Bahru City

Johor Bahru itself is a large city, with around 800,000 permanent residents, that feels run down despite recent and ongoing efforts to improve the city’s image which has been tarnished by a history of high crime rates. The city centre in Johor Bahru has a few significant points of interest for travellers, such as the Sultan Abu Bakar State Mosque, and some newer small scale creative attractions, such as the Johor Bahru Art Gallery. Nonetheless, the lack of investment in the tourism, particularly the promotion of what could potentially be major tourist attractions such as the Sultan Abu Bakar Royal Palace Museum, is reflected in the low numbers of people who come to Johor Bahru on holiday.

Much more popular are the attractions built outside the decaying city centre. The foremost of which is Legoland Malaysia, located 23 km by road from Johor Bahru Sentral Station. Also popular is the Danga Bay development, also located away from the city centre. Danga Bay is a multi-purpose development with residential accommodation, office space, shops, restaurants, zoo and theme park.

Travel from Johor Bharu to Singapore

There are three ways you can travel from Johor Bahru to Singapore by public transport: train, bus and taxi. There are advantages and disadvantages to each of these.

The fastest option is the shuttle train, which departs frequently from Johor Bahru Sentral Station and takes 5 minutes to reach Singapore. Passengers travelling by train also tend to clear immigration much more quickly than those travelling by road. The only downside is that once you arrive in Singapore at Woodland Train Checkpoint it’s more than walking distance to reach the nearest suburban railway station from where you can travel to destinations across Singapore.

Travel by road, both by bus and taxi, tends to be very slow because of congestion with long queues forming at the entry points to Singapore. There are two road connections, and the new Tuas Second Link is often only slightly less busy than the Causeway. The advantage of travel by bus is that it’s the cheapest option and the departures are the most frequent. Travel by taxi is the most expensive option, however, if walking even short distances with your luggage or children is difficult, then taking a taxi may well be worth the expense.
