To go Muar, it's best to drive your own vehicle. The road sign are quite clear and even if you are lost, you can ask the local and they are very friendly to guide the correct way.
I feel quite safe there as the hotel that I stayed doesnt have parking lots and we just parked outside the hotel without worry. Near to go to Malacca (30-45 mins drive). Hence if you wanna go out from city life from Singapore, this place is recommended. If you need to go taste local food, just go to the food court along the street, and taste the local milk tea and nasi lemak.
Do not miss to go for Muar River Cruise and the famous Mee Bandung & Satay. Ikan Bakar at Sabok Awar also recommended because the price there really cheap compare to Umbai Malacca
It is a small and clean town where people are relaxed and know how to enjoy life. Many shops and restaurants were prices are excellent as well as spas are reasonable priced.
Real value for money and people were so friendly and helpful and communication in English is no problem as I sometimes encountered in other small Malaysian towns. Will go back more often as it a worthwhile beach town to visit and eat and drink reasonably.
Glutton street is a must go. Opens late morning, lots of food to try. Just to name a few, fried carrot cake, fried oyster omelette, satay, herbal drinks etc.
Just go with an empty stomach and eat as much as u like, u b spoilt with many choices of street food.
Small town with many one-way streets, so it's easy to miss a junction and have to make a big turn to get back to your intended junction if you're driving.
Parking is a hassle, so it would be preferable to find a hotel with a parking lot facility and walk to your destination within the town center. Not much of a night-life city, with mostly budget hotels around the area, shops basically close around 10.30pm or so. Goes quiet at night. One of the few things to try out here would be the "Otak-Otak"
It is a quiet place, apparently famous for its Otah. We spent a night there enroute to Malacca as we wanted to visit the waterfall at Mt Ophir (Tangkak).
Please try famous local foods such as otak otak and pork satay! Besides, it is a must to have a cup of Elephant Bean coffee at Sai Kee Coffee 434!
Visit the local stalls, where you will not fail to taste the best authentic malaysia delicacies. Visit the town for its charming architecture.
Is a small town only thing is to go there for food and visiting my hubby relative. Is quite near to malacca about an hour drive from muar
A nice, tidy friendly town with some interesting heritage buildings and cultural sights. Some great local restaurants and coffee shops.
To travel from Singapore to Muar take an express bus Bugis to Larkin Terminal to Muar for RM$16.70 per person and we return via Kluang.
Its about an hour drive to Kluang, enroute you can visit the UK Agro zoo. Take a train from Kluang to Woodlands, Singapore for RM$16. If you take a train you do not need to alight at the JB sentral for immigration, the immigration officers come on board the train whereas if you take a bus you would hae to bring your luggage up and down the bus for immigration at the JB sentral station.
Muar is a slow developing town. There are many old colonial buildings around. The Muar river is an interesting place to loiter around.
There are some old coffee shop around serving nice coffee and cheap foods.
Food a are wonderful and tasty.every family have their own recipes for any one dish, so it makes the cuisine more variety and unique.
Must try to explore yourself into every single valley, village, houses, school, culture art center or any of the citizen recreation center or attend the annual Muar Performing Art Festival in December every year. All performers are world class standards with many award winning status. Free entry but must get your free ticket earlier.
Peaceful town...good place to try the many specialities esp satay, mee bandung, otak-otak. There are a lot of shopping complexes.
All in all a good 1-2 days stay
history city... not much entertainment and can view a lot of old shoplot and building. Nice food recommend from hawker centre
not many modern facilites, not many shopping centres, only cater to certain age group especially the older generation.
Have a lot of local fruits and fishing spot. The foods are nice and must try 'mee siput' and 'otak-otak muar'.
Muar is not a very big town. All the amenities are within the walking distance. People here are friendly.
Foods here do not add MSG , those that we patronised. It is just a place to relax though you cannot find many places to go.
Muar town is just a small town. Not many shopping malls. shop at the supermarket and departmental store.
Visit the Muar River. Melaka is only 1 hour drive.
small town near to village, visit the muar river, eat satay for breakfast and melaka is 1 hour drive.
Muar is an old town similar to Melaka and Penang. But you will find it rather less crowded over here.
The small town is easy for you to wander around and enjoy the relaxing moment. Lots of unique café around the town. And you will find nice food everywhere around the corner.
