Gunung Pulai is a 654 meter high hill near the city of Johor Bahru. Although “Gunung” means “mountain or Mt.” in Malay, it is technically not high enough to be regarded as a mountain. It might be regarded as a mountain because it is the only major high point in an otherwise flat region; however, here I will call it a hill. But what makes this place special is because it still contains substantial primary rainforest cover since it is a water catchment area for nearby Johor Bahru and Singapore, and it also has a spectacular waterfall!!!!, although it is under serious threats as well – which I will get to in a moment. Please contact the hosts for guide service.

Jalan - Jalan Jangan Tak Makan (foods hunters)
We know that the best way to get to know a place and its people is through food. Every city has a couple of must-try places to eat and certainly Johor Bahru is no exception to the rule. Here are makan place considered old skool, rare & must try. Most of the spot nostalgic for me personally. Missed my foursquare food hunting activities. Sorry, no Hipster cafes listed here.
The wafting aroma of baking bread warmed by crackling flame of the wood-fired oven is enough to entice anyone walking along Jalan Dhoby to stop by. Kedai Roti Salahuddin in the old part of Johor Bahru has amassed a loyal following from locals since it first opened. This bakery prepares breads, cakes and pastries the old-fashioned way using a 70-year-old wood-fired oven to bake their goods, infusing them with a traditional, rustic flavour. Regulars will tell you that everything here is sublime, but be sure to try their Bengali curry puffs and buns as well. Also grab a fresh loaf of bread to go, which is best enjoyed with butter and jam. Parking can be an issue around here so it might be an idea to get someone to drive while you run in to the bakery. Do take note that Salahuddin Bakery is closed every Friday. 45 minutes drive from Pulai View Homestay

Pokok Cerry Nasi Lemak
This humble roadside stall is well-known for serving up some of the best nasi lemak around. With all great nasi lemak, it’s the sambal that makes d’Cerry’s worth waking up for! Spicy but not overwhelmingly so and a little on the sweet side, it goes perfectly with the aromatic nasi (rice) cooked with herbs and coconut milk and a crispy piece of freshly fried chicken. 45 minutes drive from Pulai View Homestay

Hua Mui not only serves excellent chicken chop but it also opens early for breakfast, with kaya butter toast being the crowd favourite. But the main draw to Restoran Hua Mui is with their jeli susu (milk jelly)! It’s a simple dessert, with only evaporated milk poured over a cup of jelly. The jelly is soft to the tongue and simply melts in your mouth! A great dessert to end a great meal. 45 minutes drive from Pulai View Homestay
