A Day Trip Itinerary To Johor Bahru For All Your Family Fun


Noor Aishah Karim •  Jul 21, 2023

Welcome to an exciting day trip to Johor, Malaysia! Getting in and out of Johor can be challenging due to the infamous Causeway/Tuas traffic jam or long checkpoint queues. However, the experience is well worth it once you pass through customs and enter this vibrant city. Thanks to our community member, Farhana, you’ll experience one of the most detailed itineraries and some family fun, including things to do with your kids!

One of the fastest and stress-free ways to enter Johor is by KTM Shuttle Tebrau.

You can conveniently purchase tickets through the KTMB website, app, or KTM counters. It is advisable to plan and purchase tickets in advance, especially during long weekends or public holidays.

Tickets are usually released 1.5 months ahead, and opting for a one-way ticket instead of a round trip can save you money. Children under 4 years old travel for free but must be registered at the ticket counter before departure.
