What You Can Expect
Drive across the causeway linking Singapore and Malaysia. After immigration formalities, we commence our tour of Johore Bahru with a visit to a handicraft center to observe batik painting. This is followed by a visit to Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque, a Moorish-styled mosque that is strategically positioned on top of a hill overlooking the Straits of Johore Bahru. Built in 1900 and is one of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia, before arriving at a Kampong.
The final stop will be at a Muslim cemetery with a view from the exterior The Royal Mausoleum, an area where one can't help but appreciate the serene and tranquil atmosphere befitting a resting place for eternity. The Royal Mausoleum has been the final place for Royalty of Johore Bahru and the architecture is one of a fine, unique and aesthetic design of yesterday. From here proceed back to Singapore.
Really enjoyed this tour! A great quick view of Malaysia, great tour guide with interesting information, and customs and immigration really didn't take too long. Highly recommend!!
