The trip to Malaysia was great. It was time consuming getting through the checkpoints at the borders but that has to be done. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and although it was not a long tour we managed to see a little of the sights of Johore Bahru. Would recommend this tour to get a feel for Malaysia.
If you want a quick trip with a couple of extra stamps to add to the passport then this is the trip for you. You spend a good chunk of time going through immigration and customs. The rest of the tour is great, highlights being Malaysian dancing and music, real cocoa drink, mango tea and watching how they do the silk painting. Tour guide and bus driver really happy to chat and very knowledgeable.
Just a short drive away, it would be a shame not to see it. Especially with a knowledgable, English speaking guide who knows this country and its posple. A day well spent!
It was a fantastic trip and we had a superb guide who was very knowledgeable.
We enjoyed the short tour to Johore Bahru but
not enough time to soak up the scenery. Perhaps the tour should be longer as we spent too much time crossing the border.
Driver and tour guide were courteous and very informative. Going through customs was not a big deal and didn't take long. First stop to a batik shop was interesting...you can barter, don't take their prices at face value. Good items available. Next stop to Sultan Abu Bakar mosque was very interesting. Couldn't go in, but architecturally a beautiful place. Final stop at a 'modern village'...saw native plants, drank cocoa, watched pewter demo, short cultural dancing show, and of course shopping. Then back across the border with no problem. It was a good and informative half day trip into Malaysia and well worth the price.
the coach we travelled on was the best i have ever been on, just crossing the border into malaysia was enjoyable, the silk art was wonderfull and the home that we visited and took a walk walk around the garden was very intresting, the down side was the dancers looked as though they were thinking " here we go again" all in all a good short glimpse of the malay way.
the tour was short but educational .folks out there this is a very importannt message for all travelers.do not lose your arrivaldeparture immigration papers.Driver was so patient to wait for clearance from the immigration.I salute to them. He was more than helpful and very considerate of waiting.
Although the border formalities are time consuming, the visit to Johore Bahru was most interesting. I had a great and knowledgeable tour guide with a lot of great information to share, and a lot of pride in her country. It was a pleasure.
Very good tour, the guide was very professional and the information about Malaysia and the way of life was extremely interesting. Given the time constraint the places we visited were excellent. Also loved the coach driver. Will do more trips soon. Thankyou
Very friendly Malaysian guide. Local goods were a bit overpriced but ok to haggle. Local morning tea was lovely and different to taste. Great trip. The border changes were a bit tedious but that was all part of the trip!
