Batu Pahat Things to Do

  • The village/shrine of Minyak Beku

    This is a very small village about 15-20 min. outside Batu Pahat, located on the ocean (STs of Malacca I think) The main feature (maybe sole purpose) of the place is its shrine complex. Although the place might appear a bit shabby, I find its location and lack of visitors, and the shrine/temple complex uplifting.

  • Freshwater Fishing

    Pulling in a big fish has always been my dream. This Freshwater Fishing Recreation Centre is just the place. They have big Patin, Rohu, Pacu and the occasional Soon Hock. I once managed to get a triple catch within a period of just 30 minutes, a total weight of about 7 Kilos!

  • Bulatan Simpang Rantai

    This roundabout is by itself a landmark in Batu Pahat and is known to all travellers to or thru the town...

  • Don't miss it!

    I think no one that were born and grew up in Batu Pahat will not know about Ah See wanton mee. It is one of the oldest brand of wanton noodles in this town. The specialty will be of course its own homemade noodles made into the wanton mee. Instead of using dark soy sauce, the main ingredients for this wanton mee is sesame oil.

  • Famous and oldest hawker centre!

    Since it's one of the oldest hawker center in Batu Pahat, don't expect too much on the hygiene and cleanliness at there. I have always enjoy the food here since I was a kid.

Batu Pahat Shopping

  • One-Stop Shopping Mall

    No big retail companies will set up their malls in towns with little or no retail potential. So this speaks volume when Carrefour opened their doors in Batu Pahat in 2006, a second in the city of Johore. Carrefour provides the residents with the opportunity to buy their food items in the comforts of the air-conditioned confines and also, a place...

  • Modern Mall For the People

    How ingenious can one get when naming a mall? Batu Pahat Mall! But the mall deserves being labelled THE mall of Batu Pahat. Built in 2007, the main tenant of this Mall is the Pacific Group where they started a hypermarket, department store and food court.Another ingenuity is that the Batu Pahat Mall is built outside of the Town Centre and that...

  • Mall in Need of Rejuvenation

    Since the 90s, The Summit has been the main shopping mall within Batu Pahat, and it's showing signs of ageing, though I think their website is still pretty well maintained.Parking just in front of the mall is hard to come by, but we had to drive to the top of the mall and the view did not disappoint - a panoramic view of Batu Pahat.

Batu Pahat Off The Beaten Path

  • The Chiselled Well

    The Chiselled Well, yes this is one of the version of history that says the Siamese came here blah blah blah that they chiselled a well and they left, so the name of Batu Pahat originated here.

  • It's me again

    This is a stone inscription regarding the origin of Batu Pahat, its a history indeed but I was told that the history of BP has several versions, this is probably one of them. This version is something where the Siamese came here to dig a big hole on a rock later they left and the place thus got the name.

  • BP Seaside

    BP is quite near to seaside, only about 20 minutes of drive in average speed will bring you to the seaside, it was The Straits of Melacca, very historical and beautiful. The seaside has some fishing village and some nice restaurants, why not.
