The Heartlander Tourist

Johor Bahru is today a large city with huge plans underway to make it a global city. A new Johor Bahru City is arising around the the main thoroughfare Jalan Wong Ah Fook.

Jalan Wong Ah Fook 3In fact a whole transformation plan has been proposed.

The aim is clear, shake off the sloth and step forward as a shining jewel comparable to Singapore in the south. JB’s developmental model is not the same as Singapores. Precisely because of the different time and way in which JB and Singapore were transformed makes the considerations different. JB has had the opportunity to observe the pitfalls of modernisation and transformation.

Instead of scraping their heritage and destroying the environment, it seems like the development plans for JB include playing up the heritage and building an eco-friendly city. They plan to drastically altar the feel of thr main city belt.
