Where To Stay In Muar
Muar is bigger than you might think and there are hotels spread all over the city.
If you’ve only got one night in Muar, we recommend staying in the city centre close to the Sultan Ismail Bridge. The reason being that most of the Muar tourist attractions are located here. This makes it easy to walk between them. It’s also super easy to get an intercity bus as the bus terminal is located here.
If you’re staying longer in Muar and just want the best price, you may opt to stay on the outskirts of Muar. However it is really quite affordable to stay in the city centre. Staying in the outskirts may also be a good idea if you want a quieter location.
