Exploring Kluang, Johor : You Can Do All of This for 3 Days 2 Nights!


There are 10 districts in Johor, and I would say we conquer one of them, Kluang. Nuriy and I came here for a personal reason but, that doesn't stop us to explore the things to do in Kluang. Here are 9 spots that we discover during our 3 days 2 nights adventure!

A very great cafe to visit in Kluang! Get the details below~

1. Extreme Boutique Hotel 🏨

Since we are going out the whole day, I was just thinking about an accommodation that caters our needs like a bed, or maybe a free breakfast. It was more than that we arrived at this hotel, they provide free parking and iron too! Just, make sure to bring your toiletries as they only provide soap and shampoo.

2. Gwee Lek Ikan Asam Pedas 🍲

Whenever I went to travel, research is a must! But honestly, there aren't many blogs that cover about Kluang so, johorkaki is the one that recommends Gwee Lek Ikan Asam Pedas. They are really popular with asam pedas fish head, so make sure to give that a try!

I would say the asam pedas here is really different, as you can taste the sourness and spiciness at the same time. But, our winner is not the asam pedas but the steam egg. If you mix the steam egg, some asap pedas sauce, and rice, it will be a pleasant culinary experience!

3. Kluang Street Art πŸ“Έ

If you want to know the iconic symbol of Kluang, visit this street art. You will notice that there are a lot of mural showcases the train, Kluang Man and local coffee. I would say you wouldn't be bored by the 100-meter artsy street! Make sure to bring friends with you and take tons of photo.

KLUANG: In an effort to beautify areas in the city, the local council organized a programme where several local artists painted 3D murals on the wall of Jalan Teoh Siew Khor here.
Kluang Municipal Council (MPK) president Ismail Abu said the Kluang Kreatif 1020 programme, which was an ongoing project for the whole year, was aimed to add more attractions to the city.
“There are at least 24 murals on the wall in that area which include a painting of the city’s iconic symbol, the Kluang train,” he said.
Ismail said the council has allocated RM20,000 for the project, with most of the paintings based on popular attractions in the city, including the train and the coffee cup (Kopi Kluang).

4. Kafe Kaki Lima 🍡

The best part about walking is you will find something awesome accidentally. When we were busy looking at the street arts, we have encountered this awesome Kafe Kaki Lima! Honestly, I'm not a big fan of a cafe but this place changes my mind. Been here twice before heading back to Kuala Lumpur and we recommended you to try their Mocha!

5. Shangrila Ais Kacang 🍧

Nothing can beat hot weather with an ice cold drink. That's where ABC (Air Batu Campur) or Ais Kacang come in handy. The Shangrila Ais Kacang (mixed ice) was open since 1991 and the majority that came here is local Chinese.

So, the owner Ng Kian Swee is actually surprised that we know about his stall, well thanks to this blog post! If you are planning to come here, let him know that you came from my blog, he even posts our photo here

6. UK Farm πŸ“Έ

Since we came to Kluang for personal reason, here comes one. My friend is married and we need to do a post-photoshoot after their wedding ceremony. Besides being a location for an agriculture project, UK Farm let you get your dream wedding pictures with their authorization.

The road is a bit bumpy but the view is worth to get on. Besides, I heard that they provide accommodation, meal and travel packages at UK Farm too!

7. The Original Kluang Station Coffee🍞

Don't get me wrong, any Kluang Railway Kopitiam franchise is great but it's the best if you visit the original outlet. Located inside the Kluang KTM station, you have to wait for your turn to get that toasted bun and Kluang coffee.

I personally love the environment and the food are really good too! Although it's just a simple toasted kaya and butter bun, the way they prepared is special. Since it was a grill on charcoal, you can get that crunchy soft, melted kaya and butter in just one bite.

8. Pertubuhan Penganut Dewa Choo Ong Yah (Leng Toh Keng) πŸ“Έ

Located near Kluang Mall or to be exact in front of Nanyang Kopitiam, you will see a vibrant temple in the area. We actually spotted the temple when we went to Kluang Rail Coffee franchise at Jalan Durian, to buy some Kaya. It was a very welcoming experience and the best part is the guard of the temple tells us a history of the temple, and it has been here since 1966!
