Abode of Dignity
Johor, one of Malaysia's most developed states, features monarchical and religious architecture among its university towns and government districts that also offer impressive engineering and modern cultural hotspots. Smaller settlements provide nice walking routes along rivers, or up to natural landmarks, such as waterfalls, mountains, hot springs, and fishing lakes. Offshore, visitors flock to popular dive spots because of the rich marine diversity hidden beneath the calm waters.
