Sights and Activities

  • Endau Rompin National Park is one of the world's oldest tropical rainforests, stretching over several thousand hectares of virgin jungle. It has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years. The park gives shelter to some exotic species. It offers a slew of activities for the adventurous, including camping, jungle trekking, bird watching, boating and fishing.
  • Desaru, which literally translates as Village of Casuarinas, is a long stretch of sandy beach contoured by casuarina trees. Lying on the southeast corner of Johor, next to lush tropical forests, it is quite popular among wealthy locals. One can enjoy activities like swimming, snorkeling, boating, canoeing, windsurfing, water-skiing, and catamaran sailing. Desaru has enough facilities for these kinds of sports.
  • Mount Ophir. Thanks to its lush landscape and lovely waterfalls, Mount Ophir is a popular attraction for hikers and birdwatchers in Johor. Locals love to camp and picnic here during their holidays.
  • Pontian and Kukup are two tiny fishing hamlets near Johor that offer some of the best fresh seafood in the region. Houses and restaurants are both built in traditional style on stilts.
  • Tanjung Piai is great for experiencing Johor’s coastal fauna as well as conventional kampong life. Tanjung Piah, located in midst of a mangrove forest, is a nice place.
  • Pulau Rawa, lying just 16 km off the coast of Johor, is a picturesque island. Appreciated for its white sand, coves and crystal clear waters, it is popular for recreational water activities such as snorkeling, diving and fishing.
  • Pulau Tengah. Designated a marine park, it has teeming marine life including rare species of fish and coral. In the month of July, you can see giant leatherback turtles coming out from the sea to lay their eggs.
