Neighbourhood Review


Mersing is a seaside town in Johor. Ferries for offshore islands such as Pulau Tioman and Pulau Besar depart from the port in Mersing. Pulau Tioman is probably the most well-known of these islands, particularly for its scuba diving and snorkeling activities.

The town can also act as a base for those who would like to visit destinations like the Endau Rompin National Park, the Gunung Arong Recreational Forest, Endau, Teluk Buih, Air Papan and Penyabong. Many of these places, while off the beaten track, feature stunning natural landscapes and are well worth visiting. Thus, there is potential for homestay businesses in Mersing.

Buses travel to the town from many destinations in Malaysia, such as Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru, as well as Singapore. For those who would like to visit various places within Mersing itself, it is definitely more convenient to have a car, especially to enjoy the coastal views when driving from one location to another.

Nevertheless, it is also possible to get around by walking, cycling or biking, as many attractions and amenities are situated close to each other by the seaside. In the vicinity of the town centre, you will be able to find a district hospital, banks, hotels, clinics, bistros, cafes, food stalls, mosques, wet markets, supermarkets, and several governmental department offices.

Schools and educational institutions serving the local community include Politeknik Mersing, which provides diploma courses in areas like electrical engineering and information technology, Giatmara, a training centre for technical and vocational courses, SK Sri Mersing, SK Bandar Mersing, SMK Anjung Batu, SMK Mersing, SK Sawah Dato’, Sekolah Agama Kampung Sawah Dato’ and Sekolah Menengah Agama Al-Khairiah, Sekolah Agama Bukit Timbalan and SMJK Pai Chee.

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households. (Wikipedia)

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) line shows an increment in prices of essential goods on a yearly basis, while the Percentage Changes line shows the level of changes in price increments over the years. For example, a dip in the CPI line may indicate a low level of price increment as compared to the previous year while a surge in CPI line shows a high level of price increment as compared to the previous year.

The above graph shows 1.839% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 2.471% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 3.525% in the year 2014 while surging by 2.957% in 2015.

While the prices of essential goods have shown a variation in the Percentage Changes, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on the other hand indicates a reality of ever increasing prices in essential goods with increments between the years 2011 - 2015 at 102.7 in 2011, 105.2 in 2012, 107.8 in 2013, 111.6 in 2014, 114.9 in 2015.
