    Johor Bahru Things to Do

    If you want close encounters with the tigers, then this zoo is for you. For me it's really scary like there's this one tiger whose cage's door is so small and only locked by a small yale.

  • Getting Fashion Tips from Orang Asli

    If you do get a chance to stay in Endau Rompin, don't miss out on the chance to interact with the local tribesman or the Orang Asli. They are effectively billingual in Malay and in their own native tongue which sounds strangely musical to the urban ear. They enthralled us with stories of the wild (Tigers! Tigers! Tigers!) and surprised us when they...

  • Stopping by Keluang for Best Coffee In...

    Along the way from Singapore to Bekok via train, we by-passed the Keluang Railway Station and I couldn't help but think what muddybok, bkoon and imstress had been saying - there is a famous coffee shop there serves the best coffee, toasted bread “Roti Bakar” and half boiled eggs. But since my tour guide looked like the chappie who blew up the twin...

  • Go in a covered 4x4 to Endau Rompin

    We had a spot of lunch at Bekok Town and after that, we got packed into 4x4s for our ride into the mighty jungle. But not really, it was more of a mad scramble for choice seats. All of us wanted to ride on the open-topped 4wd and I was really sorry that I could not get my more than ample ass on one. I climbed grudgingly into a covered Jeep. But the...

  • Trekking to Takah Tinggi Waterfalls

    The trek to Takah Tinggi Waterfalls ( Endau Rompin) was tougher than expected as we encountered many obstacles - fallen logs, leeches, rocky areas, rickety bridges and steep slopes.

  • Feeding your Lunch to Fish

    Somehow my dive camera always fascinate my travelling companions. So when they saw me with one at Takah Tinggi Waterfalls in Endau Rompin, they begged me to stay underwater while they flung their lunch at the fish. Sigh. I'm not one to preach about world hunger so I just complied. Take a look at the pictures and guess what they fed the...

  • Swimming in Lubuk Merekek.

    Not too far from Lubuk Tapah campsite( Endau Rompin, Johor) lies a beautiful deep green emerald swimming hole. The waters here are deeper than Lubuk Tapah and that's where the caveat lies. This makes the water cold, too bloody cold in fact. It took me a while to warm up and when I was finally in the water shivering my ass off, a grinning Orang Asli...

  • Exploring Living Antiques in Bekok

    Prior to my Endau Rompin romp, we explored the small town of Bekok ( You can bet it's small, I can't find it on VT yet! ) Apart from its size, this place looks frozen in time, circa 1960's to be exact. It comes complete with old-fashioned coffee shops, antique posters of medicated oil that claims to cure everything and antiquated barber shops...

  • Playing with the River Crossing @ Lubuk...

    Other than Canoeing, you can also play with the inflatable river crossing at Lubuk Tapah Camp in Endau Rompin. Just hoist the rope to get to the other side. The whole time when I was there, many young boys love to use it as a base to jump in the middle of the river. There's also a suspension bridge there for more horseplay.

    We reached Lubuk Tapah base camp after driving over elephant poo for one hour from Bekok to Endau Rompin National Park.

  • Insure yourself before going to Endau...

    We entered Endau Rompin National Park by the West side via Bekok Town and it was an ardous 1 hour journey. Sure, it was fun traversing across mud tracks and watching big mounds of elephant poo whiz pass us but the journey was a bumpy one. Definitely not for the faint hearted. The jeep SLALOMed for most of the way since the tyres did not have enough...

  • Taking a Commuter Train from Singapore...

    My Endau Rompin journey started from Singapore's Keppel Railway Station. We left the train station at about 1030am in the morning on a commuter train for a sleepy Johorian town called Bekok.

  • Food (Takeway) Haven

    There are many streets in Muar specialised in takeaway stalls that sell almost anything fit for human consumption, and mostly oily.

We eat so long we manage to find time & foods.So, just unleash your appetite in Muar and you will never regret it.

  • Herbal Tea

    Since young, my parents always buy us herbal tea drinks after the shopping session at Muar's malls due to long parking distance. My dad will normally order and wanted us to drink liang-teh to "cool" down the effect of the heat.Some additional Chinese medicines can be added in case you have serious sore throat and just simply want to give yourself...

  • Muar State Railway (no longer operation)

    It was first planned to be part of the railway connecting Johor Bharu and Gunung Pulai, but the effort is futile as it failed to render any service. Thus, Muar was the first district to have its own railway service. The construction of Muar Railway was completed in 1890 and soon giving transportation service from Jalan Sulaiman in Bandar Maharani...
