All About Living In Johor


All About Living In Johor


Living in Johor Bahru (JB) is unique in one way as one can’t find another vibrant city in Malaysia with such proximity to another country, Singapore. I call JB my home as my family and love ones are here too. It is also more relaxed than KL. Last but not least, I believe in the vision of Iskandar Malaysia and am proud to be part of it!


Johor presented me with a brilliant opportunity of working in a reputed international school along with living in a lovely city. The state has a rustic charm, it is quaint and convivial. It is a perfect blend of heritage, history and a vibrant modern side. I appreciate celebrating the diverse culture and delectable cuisine. Living in Johor is certainly a wonderful experience and I will cherish this city forever!



In 2012, we came across Puteri Harbour in Iskandar Puteri and I imagined the neighbourhood to be an ideal home for my young family – a nest of calm and tranquillity with large spaces dedicated to nature, waterways, and an up-and-coming community with a lot of potential.

By 2015, my family lives, studies, and spends most weekdays in Johor with the convenience of travelling to neighbouring states or countries on the weekend and holidays. We are glad to have made the move and we are ecstatic about the future it holds.

Over the past few years, we have witnessed the rapid growth of Iskandar Malaysia and the communities, infrastructures, and lifestyle amenities are maturing on par. In comparison to all the cities I have lived in, Johor is a hidden gem and with certainty, it is poised to become a world-class city.



From Tangkak to Tanjung Puteri, Pontian to Pengerang, there is much more to our beloved state than just Johor Bahru. As a child, my father (another proud Johorean) often brought me to visit the towns and villages in Johor.

Johor has a rich, remarkable and unique history with a bright and prosperous future. I love that peace, harmony and mutual respect exists between different races and religions, more so than in other states.

I love that we can enjoy simple pleasures and simple meals, just as easily we can experience world-class dining and entertainment. I love Johor because it is home.
