Featuring intricate motifs, scented gardens, serene water features, a mini indoor garden with its own waterfall, and refreshing open spaces, the majestic Kota Iskandar may look like a palace but it is in fact the Johor State Administrative Centre.

Within its compound are Bangunan Sultan Ismail, Home of the State Parliament, Bangunan Dato’ Jaafar Muhammad, Office of the Chief Minister and State Secretariat, and the Kota Iskandar Mosque, among other buildings. 

Designed with the influence of Granada’s Alhambra Palace and Moorish style interwoven with local elements (you’ll be able to see black pepper motifs if you look closely), it’s a sight to marvel at.

Cozying up in an air-conditioned room is nice and all but sometimes you need to feel sun rays on your face, feel the sand under your feet and catch some waves. Times like that are when you swing by Tanjung Balau Beach.

You can cool off in the sea, let your skin drink up some Vitamin Ds, take a leisurely stroll, hunt for seashells at the nearby cove, fly kits, or spread out the mat to catch the sunset or sunrise.
