Discover Johor Bahru through a unique cycling experience in the city as you manoeuvre your way through the route and discover the local culture.
Prepare for your cycling excursion as you make your way to the residential area behind Thistle Hotel to collect your rental bike. An exciting adventure awaits you as you strap on your cycling equipment and get ready for the amazing journey ahead. Just a short 10-minute drive from the city centre lies “Kampung City”, Johor Bahru’s hidden gem. As your cycling adventure brings you past the spectacular views of the natural forest, take in the serenity of the surroundings and its beautiful natural environment. Not only will you experience a refreshing cycle, you will also get the opportunity to experience the local lifestyle of the villages, or ‘kampung’ as the locals call it.
Your cycling skills will be put to the test as the road has multiple curves, uphill incline and downhill roads. This locally curated “Kampung City” experience includes exploring Kampung Mahmoodiah, Kampung Tarom and Kampung Bahru. Witness the interesting daily lives of the local villagers and indulge in the local cuisine and flavours along this journey to appease your hunger. Feel free to snap away on your camera and capture wonderful memories when you make short stops for rest and photo-taking opportunities.
If your stamina allows, keep going for another 20 minutes from Kampung City to Heritage City and lose yourself in the fascinating buildings and culture heavily influenced by the British colonial era. Admire the stunning architecture of the Indian Temple, Johor Chinese old temple, Catholic Church, Indian Muslim Mosque and vintage local shops among many others. Stop for a cup of coffee and one of the many hipster cafes that are popular in the downtown city.
