This is a old town started before the world war. There are many old building in the town area such as the Pos office building, chinese Chamber of commerce, the old Cinema, the old government buildings, the HighSchool BP main hall, the fountain, etc.
Batu Pahat is quite a small but very clean and well maintained town. You can see the people are well-to-do and quality of accommodation and restaurants is high-end but price is low-end.
Real value-for-money and enjoyed it very well. Looked like nightlife is well established too but not much time to explore but could see it a good place for biz men to enjoy a beer and make easily some new friends. People are bit humble though as they think their English doesn't meet our standards but can say communication was no problem. I am sure you wouldn't feel lonely going out for drink as people are friendly and very social

Generally, Batu Pahat itself has not much to offer. If not for business, i doubt i will ever go there again.
Batu Pahat is a short drive if you are travelling up from say Singapore or JB. So it's a nice transit stop.
Probably won't recommend it as a travel destination in itself, as there isn't a lot to do. But the food is not bad at all. And prices of stuff are better than bigger towns. It's a nice town, I like it. But I wouldn't stay for more than a couple of days at most.
Eat and shop around the town. Food are delicious and reasonably priced. Visit BP Mall or Carrefour area.
Most wonderful thing to do in batu pahat is to find some good massage center and visit chinese templer.
Try to get some recommedation from front desk about the cheap and good massage, there are a lots massage centers in the town.
