Johor Bahru, the capital of the state of Johor, is at the southern tip of the Malaysian peninsula, where Malaysia's north-south highway comes to its southern terminus. Because it's just over the causeway from Singapore, a very short jump by car, bus, or train, it's a popular point of entry to Malaysia and a good day trip for Singapore residents to come looking for shopping bargains at the city's retail outlets. Johor Bahru, or "JB," has a few cultural attractions, and because it's a small town, it's easy to get around on foot to see everything in a day.
