About Johor Bahru


Johor

Johor Bahru is the capital of the state of Johor, located on the southern tip of Malaysia. It is a place that is often referred to by its initials ‘JB’ by locals. It is the main business hub in the state where the Central Business District is located, and is also a vastly popular city for its proximity to Singapore which is literally just across the bridge. Johor Bahru was only officially declared as a city in 1994. It has a rapidly growing population, but with the vast tracts of undeveloped land available to this city, the density of living in Johor Bahru is far lower than it is in either Kuala Lumpur or Penang; the other two major states of Malaysia. Due to Johor Bahru’s location just across from Singapore, many Malaysian parents send their children to school across the borders daily for a better education, while many Singaporeans choose to buy a house in Malaysia and live in the country while still maintaining their Singaporean citizenship as property in Johor Bahru is far more affordable than property in the land-starved country of Singapore. Getting to Singapore from Johor Bahru and vice versa is very convenient via land transport, although massive traffic congestion is an everyday occurrence. There are two access points in and out of either country, the Causeway and the newer bridge that is known as the Second Link. With the not-so-recent redevelopment of the southern tip of Malaysia to become Iskandar Malaysia, Johor Bahru has been gaining more and more international attention for its increasingly international standard developments such as Pinewood Malaysia, Legoland and the Iskandar Malaysia Educity. As such, Johor Bahru is expected to become an increasingly prosperous state.
