Kota Tinggi Waterfalls, Johor Bahru Malaysia
How to get there:
Singapore to JB Central
From the MRT Take Red line to Woodlands Station. Outside the station proceed to the Woodlands bus interchange and take the bus going to JB Central.
We wanted to try the new train ride to JB which is more faster, so we took Bus 912 from Woodlands Interchange. However, when we got there the latest train bound to JB is only around 5pm. I was totally confused why but I guess its due to the holiday or the train might be under maintenance. My friend told me its still a month old and maybe operation is not running smoothly. Moving on. We proceeded all the way up to top level at the same building where the train to JB is situated. Passports checked and Money changed. The money changer is just right outside the immigration counters.

The water was cold, refreshing and invigorating. It was a perfect environment to get away from the bustling city life in Singapore. I read a few reviews saying the place is filthy and its not worth the visit. I went there and the place looked wonderful. The place has been kept clean and safe for everyone.
There 4 stations: The main entrance leads to a stream where all the kids play and go and down a long water slide. The first station of the waterfall is the most crowded area and the best place for a free back massage. While going up further the stairs leads to the second station.
The third station was our favorite stop where it has a jacuzzi-like tub and we stayed in that area till it was time to get back on the road. The last spot is right beside the jacuzzi tub which is the main waterfall but swimming is not allowed there, the thin net barricading the area says it all. If you want the waterfalls all to yourself then better go there during the weekdays, try to avoid any holidays and weekends. Food is not allowed inside but the security was kind enough to allow to bring along our snacks with us. Just bare in mind not to leave anything behind especially any kind of rubbish from your bags.
