The beauty of Muar will leave a lasting impression. If you wish to truly see nature untouched, then you need to explore Malaysia from Muar. The plant and animal life are some of the most unique out of all the surrounding rainforests. Yet the local restaurants, hotels, museums and heritage spots are in ready supply. You will find great value for money ample to do. Every experience exceeds your expectations. In every direction you have an outdoor adventure awaiting. Let’s look closer at the points of interest which you simply have to see.
Muar is both the capital of the Muar District in Johor and a location which has a rich heritage honoured in history. Many of the buildings in this town are from the pre-war era when Muar was known as Bandar Maharani. As a major nexus for tourism you can expect to find countless well known restaurants and chain stores and a range of authentic Malay creations as well. A better blend of modern comforts and old-world heritage is hard to find.
Be sure to be on the lookout for suites along the river at the few mid-range hotels found in the area. Yet if you are shopping on a budget then look a bit further from the water. A similar quality can be found in most of Taman Orkid but at a better price.
If you are looking for accommodation which places you within walking distance of many restaurants and shops, then try the central area of Tanjung Emas Mas. Taman Sri Tanjung is another good option which also puts convenience at your disposal.
While the best conditions cannot be expected, the overall condition of the budget accommodation found in Jalan Meriam, Jalan Abdullah and Jalan Maharani is not bad. These are the best places to shop if you’re on a tight budget.
Take a stroll on the beach at Tanjung Emas Park. This is a great place to enjoy a relaxing walk through the many rows of beautifully landscaped greenery and archaic colonial buildings. Finish off your day by watch the sunset from the beaches of this easy-to-access park.
Seafood is in abundance in and around Muar. Try your hand at angling at Tanjung Ketapang, Tanjung Agas or the Sultan Ismail Bridge. Those who know their way by boat can charter a vessel and head upriver. Great freshwater prawns can be found if you are willing to travel upstream.
Muar hosts many festivals throughout the year. Play your cards right, setting your schedule out ahead of time and you can be present for the beautiful ceremonies of the Nine Emperors Gods’ Birthday, Malaysia’s National Day, the deity San Cai’s birthday and even a massive cultural demonstration on the last day of Chinese new year called Chap Goh Mei’s “Puak Tau Sai”.
Found at the bottom of the Muar River at the areas of Pengkalan Tiram, Parit Tarim, Jalan Sallieh and Muar are some of the biggest fresh oysters around. The sheer abundance of them makes oysters very cheap in Muar. Don’t miss out.
No meat lover can skip Bak Kua, or barbecued roasted pork. This meal is a memorable local dish which resembles jerky. A better dried and seasoned meaty snack is impossible to find.
Across Muar, you’ll be able to find a wide variety of authentic Chinese pastries. Keep your eyes open for tambun biscuits, bean biscuits, moon cakes and Heong Peah (a delectable pastry with a sticky malt and shallot filling).
