It was rather warm, without a breeze along the river side that evening . No beautiful sunset to behold. Plenty of car parking lots. The food stalls were still open for snacks & drinks.

Tetian Bakau is a new attraction in Tanjung Muar. It features a stilted track, zigzagging across the mangrove. An eco-tourism for close-up views of flora and fauna.

We enter from our morning walk route. It has a pathway of elevated wooden track with rail guards, rest points and a view deck over the Straits of Melaka. Monkeys, herons, iguanas and mud crabs appear in their natural habitats. Chirping birds and creepy insects are audible. The pathway exit at the south end of Tanjung Muar. Tetian Bakau offers a mangrove experience without wetting the feet.

The Most Beautiful Town in ASEAN

As a Muarian I was very proud when my town was voted “ cleanest tourist city in ASEAN “ the STAR pg : 14, 18/2/2018 ”. Wow !! - The accolade was long overdue and the credit goes in no small measure to our Sultan , HRH Sultan Ibrahim Ismail , who had declared Muar a Royal town and took a personal interest in instilling discipline in the town’s workers to ensure that cleanliness was delivered and maintained.
The town has certainly grown in the 50 years that has lapsed since I left home after completing my Senior Cambridge ( as it was known in those days ) in St Andrews Secondary School helmed then by the charismatic Brother Robert O Sullivan. Thanks to forward thinking local developers like GoldLi Development the town has 3 storey houses with built in lifts and swimming pools – GoldLi believes that Muar folk have money and whilst the previous generation hoarded their savings carefully, the new generation that inherited it believe in spending it on creature comforts.
The roads in Muar are ideal for cycling – real flat and we as children cycled all over the place. Unlike now, there were very few cars on the road and safety was not an issue. Cycling to school was great fun especially if you had a bunch of school mates to accompany you. To get to St Andrews you took a short cut through a graveyard ; you had to cross a rickety wooden bridge that went over a dirty monsoon drain . One day as I was pushing my bicycle across this bridge my school bag that was perched at the back of my bicycle slipped and fell into the drain – school and exercise books were soaked in dirty water and there was hell to pay for when I got home ! The graveyard was another adventure especially when you passed by it late at night after school meetings – our fertile imaginations always made up ghostly apparitions behind head stones causing us to cycle faster.
Several street mural have also been painted in Muar town in recent years by foreign artists – one of the most beautiful to check out is titled the “ loving sisters ” painted by Julia Volchkova, a Siberian artist . The Loving Sisters is a street mural painted by Russian artist Julia Volchkova. Julia chanced upon the sisters Nur Najwa and Nur Najiyah at Tanjong Emas. The affection shown by the sisters represents the strong sense of belonging and attachment of Muarians to their Royal town.
Muar is a heaven for street food – the new generation however operate many of these eateries inherited from their parents in shop houses. Special mention must be made of Mee Bandung, Satey , home made fish balls and Otak Otak – a Muar speciality – the otak otak has flavourful curry spices, coconut milk and is packed with tender, juicy fresh minced fish. The best Black Bean Pau definety comes from Muar ( the fillings are soooo generous ) as does Dim Sum for half the price you pay for in PJ or KL. The food buff can find all this in Glutton Street, at the junction of Jalan Haji Abu and Jalam Meriam. I cannot finish without mentioning old fashion home made bread with its delicious crust hot from the oven + kaya as spread. Of course no self respecting Muarian will decline washing this down with coffee beans roasted in the town itself ; but be warned – whereas the original coffee is smooth and in the realm of connoisseur coffee, the new 3 in 1 packaging is a disaster. 2 new Indian restraunts now compete for clients – I have always felt that the town needed a good clean Indian restraunt which was sorely lacking for many years – I however have to admit that the taste of appum and thosai in Muar loses out to the shops in PJ and KL. Another food treasure that was recently discovered by us was a shop selling roti canai – they call it roti arab here. The shop is at the end of Jalan Ibrahim at the junction before one turns to go to Tanjung Emas. Call me a proud Muarian but I think this shop sells one of the best tasting roti canai in Malaysia – crispy on the outside, chewy soft on the inside and not oily at all.
Jalan Maharani which runs parallel to the river has on its other side a row of pre war shop houses which in its heyday housed many chettiar shops – these were money lenders from south India who came to ply their trade and served the local farming community – many of Muars’ successful families’ today owe their wealth to the assistance provided by these money lenders in bygone days. These chettiars were very frugal when it came to spending their hard earned cash – however they believed in eating well and brought in cooks from South India to prepare their meals . Because my father did the income tax for the chettiars, he was often invited to partake of these meals with them – my memory bank is full of great gastronomical delights had at these functions where south indian chettinad chicken,quail, mutton and fish dishes were served .
As you drive down from Kuala Lumpur 2 bridges cross the Muar river – the first bridge, the two lane, Sultan Ismail Bridge opened in 1967, replacing the old ferry services and gets one into the center of town . In 2004 a second four lane bridge was built , located north of the first bridge to ease traffic congestion. This was a semi harp cable stayed bridge similar in design to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa Bay Florida. To the west of the town you will see the Dataran Tanjung Emas Roundabout and fountain, with a sculpture carrying the Johor Royal Crest of Arms – a real sight to behold when it is lit up at night. Across the road from the round about is a new Japanese Restraunt situated within a 100 year old bungalow – I have yet to taste the food served within the premises.
The 100 year old MahaMuthumariamman temple and the Nattukottai Chettiars Sri Murugan Temple are architectural splendours that serve the needs of the Hindu community in Muar. The temples colourful Gopurams ( temple domes ) built by South Indian artisans are a hit with both local and foreign tourists.
At the mouth of the Muar river is sited the Sultan Ibrahim Jamek Mosque completed in 1887 – this is one of the oldest mosques in Johor ; across the river at Tanjung Agas is sited its replica, the Sultan Ismail Mosque, also known as the 2nd Jamek Mosque – these 2 mosques are certainly a sight to behold looking across the river on a clear day .
Near the Sultan Jamek mosque is the Tanjung Emas Jetty where one catch a cruise up the Muar river several times daily. On the other end is the Tanjung Emas Park – on a clear day one can see a beautiful sunset from across the river mouth ; a flock of resident storks add to picture perfect moments as they fly across the rays of the setting sun. Tanjung Emas Park has beautiful walking paths that lure dozens of walkers especially on weekends. One has to be careful of troops of Monkeys in this area, especially the Alphas males who can be rather bold and menacing . At the end of the park Deejays lead groups of exercise buffs in high energy dances to the accompaniment of high octave songs – a great end to a weekend spent in one of Malaysia’s most beautiful towns.

Located at the Muar river estuary facing the Strait of Melaka is a beautiful leisure park for everyone.
There are food stores and a food court serving local delicacies n Malay traditional snacks. Suitable for family n children with playground and wide open play field.
Here you can experience cool breeze and beautiful sunset facing The Strait of Melaka. There is also a tour boat to take you for a guided tour along the coast where you can witness mangrove swamp and coastal scenery of this beautiful coastal town.
When the night fall the park is beautifully decorated with colourful lighting and fill with laughter from children. It is a different scenery and very peaceful at night. Worth a visit if you come to town.

It's a nice place to relax, enjoy the scenery and sea breeze... and sunset too!

This is an old park but still well-kept. It located at the mouth of Muar river that meets the ocean. So you may find the muddy beach and mangrove swamp here. The locals visit here in the morning and also late afternoon for outdoor activities like running, strolling and other family activities.

The park is clean, ample parking spaces for visitors and few other facilities. It's a good place to catch sunset and landscape photographer would love this place. That was the reason I was here and this place is the landmark of this small town, Muar. This was my second time visit to this place.

You can also take a boat tour along the Muar river and that what I did during my first visit somewhere last year. The fee is quite cheap but getting on a wooden boat is quite an experience.

It was at 10.30pm on a Sunday night that we went after a heavy dinner. Pleasant surprise to see people of all walks of life having great time with their loved ones, be it playing at the playground, strolling along the breezy river bank, jogging or cycling. A number of spots are insta-worthy. This is a must go in Muar.
