Wondering if it’s worth stopping in Johor Bahru (JB) on your way into or out of Malaysia?

Located opposite Singapore, it’s often the first place people visit in Malaysia. And while i wouldn’t say JB is terribly exciting or a must-visit, if you are in the area, it’s worth checking out. In fact, JB can be a valid alternative to staying in Singapore.

If you have Lego-mad kids, you may already be aware that this area is home to Legoland Malaysia, and it’s awesome. Definitely put JB on your list if Lego is something you or your family enjoys.

But there are other things worth seeing and doing around here too and, in this episode, I’m discussing  why you should visit, what to do when you’re here and where to stay as well as how to get here. This includes lot of information about crossing between Singapore and Malaysia.

By the end of this episode, you’ll be all set for a visit to Johor Bahru.
