GETTING THERE

I was looking through Air Asia‘s website (because I knew they are having some sort of a promotion) and I was lucky that I manage to get a GREAT DEAL for a return flight ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru! Only RM78 for a two-way (return) ticket!! Besides flying there, you can also take a bus or drive there directly.

ACCOMMODATION

Since this getaway is meant to be a ‘cheap’ getaway, decided to stay at Tune Hotels. The rate is cheap, but it depends on what ‘add-on’ service(s) you required during your stay. The lesser the ‘add-on’, the cheaper the rate will be. Based on the rate that I have paid for, my comment for Tune Hotels, Danga Bay is … SATISFACTORY! The bed is comfortable and I love the power shower 😉

GETTING AROUND

Most of the time I just take a taxi (except for going to Legoland, took a shuttle bus). Here’s a number to call if you need one. Usually i will call the Public Cab

THINGS TO DO AND SEE

These are some of the things I did during my visit to Johor Bahru.

  • Danga Bay – used to be a hip & lively place but now there are lesser people visiting this place. It’s a nice place to take photos though 😉
