Johor Bahru (also spelled Johor Baharu, Johor Baru, or Johore Bahru is the capital city of Johor in southern Malaysia, located north of Singapore. Johor Bahru is the southernmost state in Peninsular Malaysia.

Tourism is one of the most important factors for Johor Bahru's economic growth. As at today, Johor Bahru have been signified with Legoland Theme & Water Park, Sanrion Hello Kitty Theme Park, Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) and the Johor -Singapore Causeway.
