Johor Port serves the City of Pasir Gudang and is located within the metropolitan area of Singapore. While tourism opportunities abound in the urban area and the region, few exist in Johor Port. However, visitors may want to seek out these popular locations.
The Royal Mausoleum, near the Hyatt Regency Johor Bahru about 17 kilometers west of Pasir Gudang and Johor Port, is the historic resting place for Johor’s Royalty. With unique and beautiful architecture, the mausoleum is surrounded by peaceful gardens, and properly-attired visitors can stroll through at their leisure.
The 16th Century Johor Lama Fort, 18 kilometers northwest of Pasir Gudang and Johor Port, was located in the historic capital of the Johor Kingdom. Located strategically on the Johor River, the fort was a secure trading post for the entire region. Portuguese invaders leveled the settlement in 1587, but its remains can be seen today, recalling a once-great kingdom. Near the fort are two tombs thought to hold Johor Lama’s first sultan, Alauddin Riayat Shah and his warriors.
The Mount Lambak Recreational Forest is located 90 kilometers northwest of Pasir Gudang and Johor Port, about five kilometers north of the town of Kluang in central Johor State. On the foothill of Mount Lambak, the forest is wonderful for picnics, mountain-climbing, and swimming. Visitors travel footpaths and wooden bridges to arrive at the park where they can enjoy the wonders of nature and swim at some beautiful waterfalls. Overnight lodgings are available.
