Option 1: JB One Day Trip (Near JB Sentral)

Want to experience the best of JB in a hurry?

This trip is ideal for business travelers or any busy travelers who will only stay in JB for a short amount of time.

Have breakfast at Jalan Wong Ah Fook before doing a little sightseeing at:

  • Jalan Tan Hiok Nee (look for JB most popular banana cake!)

Food hunters! Don’t forget to try the local food below! These are just walking distance from City Square JB:

Option 2: Legoland Malaysia One Day Trip

Have you been to a Legoland theme park before? You can visit Legoland Malaysia with your young kids.

  • Legoland Malaysia (Theme Park + Water Park + Sea Life) – You’ll need more than a day to fully explore all 3 sections in Legoland Malaysia.

After a day of fun, you can head over to one of the most famous shopping malls in JB, Johor Premium Outlets (JPO).

And for food that is near Legoland Malaysia, might I suggest Gelang Patah for the seafood or Bukit Indah for a dose of international flavours?

Option 3: Desaru One Day Trip Itinerary

Seen all there is to see in Johor Bahru? I highly recommend a day trip to Desaru with the following Desaru attractions:

  • Desaru Fruit Farm (Farm Tour/ Mini Zoo/ Bee Talk / Go-Kart) (Most Recommended)
  • Desaru Coast Adventure Water Park (Southeast Asia Largest Wave Pools)
  • Desaru Ostrich Farm (Biggest Ostrich Farms In Malaysia)

End the day with a scrumptious seafood dinner at Sungai Rengit.

Many Singaporeans like to travel to Desaru during a public holiday that is back to back with the weekend.

The tried and true Desaru 2D1N Trip features a one-night stay at any of the luxurious Desaru resort & hotel along the east coastline.

Consider these other attractions if you find you have extra time in Desaru:

Want to escape the perpetual summer heat?

One way is to beat the heat through a cooling dip at the local waterfall!

Stay later until the evening and you can go for a firefly boat tour through the mangroves!

  • Firefly Valley Leisure Park

Option 7: Johor Island Hopping Day Trip

A Johor island-hopping day trip is always a blast with a group of friends, colleagues or family. Visit these 5 islands for an unbeatable day!

In the afternoon, roam around Mersing islands and pass by Rawa Island.

Have lunch at Pulau Hujung and go snorkeling again at Besar Island & Tengah Island before you make your way back to Mersing again.

Back at Mersing town, you can check out these things to do in Mersing.

Have more than a few days to spare? Then you can go for a 3D2N Tioman & Rawa Island trip to experience these world-class snorkeling destinations first hand!

Make the most of weekends with public holidays so that you have more days to relax and have fun to the max!
