batang melaka to johor bahru
The 1914 Pamphlet of Information for Travellers published by Federated Malay States Railways was not very complimentary about the final sector of the journey from KL to Johor Bahru:
It is unfortunate that the traveller, whether going up or down the line, must pass during the night the beautiful views of the Rembau valleys, but with that exception the section between Johore Bahru and Kuala Lumpur is quite uninteresting and just as well passed in the night.
These are the current-day stops on this section:
Kluang is famous for its station coffee shop. You can read about Kluang and the nearby Gunung Lambak on my Malaysia Traveller website.
Gemas is the junction of Malaysia's west and east coast lines and starting point for the Jungle Railway. Read about Gemas on my Thrifty Traveller blog.
The best way to experience JB's sights is on foot by following my Johor Bahru Heritage Trail. See my Malaysia Traveller website for details.
