Exploring Kluang, Johor for 3 Days 2 Nights!
There are 10 districts in Johor, and I would say we conquer one of them, Kluang. Nuriy and I came here for a personal reason but, that doesn’t stop us from exploring the things to do in, Kluang. Here are 9 spots that we discover during our 3 days 2 nights adventure!
1. Extreme Boutique Hotel 🏨
Since we are going out the whole day, I was just thinking about accommodation that caters to our needs like a bed, or maybe a free breakfast. It was more than that we arrived at this hotel as they provide free parking and iron too! Just make sure to bring your toiletries as they only provide soap and shampoo.

2. Gwee Lek Ikan Asam Pedas 🍲
Whenever I went t,o travel, research is a must! But honestly, there aren’t many blogs that cover about Kluang so, johorkaki is the one that recommends Gwee Lek Ikan Asam Pedas. They are popular with Asam Pedas fish head, so make sure to give that a try!
I would say the Asam Pedas here is different, as you can taste the sourness and spiciness at the same time. But, our winner is not the Asam Pedas but the steam egg. If you mix the steam egg, some Asam Pedas sauce, and rice, it will be a pleasant culinary experience!

3. Kluang Street Art 📸
If you want to know the iconic symbol of Kluang, visit this street art. You will notice that there are a lot of mural showcases the train, Kluang Man and local coffee. I would say you wouldn’t be bored by the 100-meter artsy street! Make sure to bring friends with you and take tons of photos.

4. Kafe Kaki Lima 🍵
The best part about walking is you will find something awesome accidentally. When we were busy looking at the street arts, we have encountered this impressive Kafe Kaki Lima! Honestly, I’m not a big fan of a cafe, but this place changes my mind. Been here twice before heading back to Kuala Lumpur, and we recommended you to try their Mocha!

5. Shangrila Ais Kacang 🍧
Nothing can beat hot weather with an ice-cold drink. That’s where ABC (Air Batu Campur) or Ais Kacang come in handy. The Shangrila Ais Kacang (mixed ice) was open since 1991, and the majority that came here is local Chinese.
So, the owner Ng Kian Swee is surprised that we know about his stall, well thanks to this blog post! If you are planning to come here, let him know that you came from my blog, he even posts our photo here.

6. UK Farm 📸
Since we came to Kluang for personal reasons, here comes one. My friend is married, and we need to do a post-photoshoot after their wedding ceremony. Besides being a location for an agriculture project, UK Farm lets you get your dream wedding pictures with their authorization.
The road is a bit bumpy, but the view is worth getting on. Besides, I heard that the place could provide accommodation, meals and travel packages at UK Farm too!

7. The Original Kluang Station Coffee🍞
Don’t get me wrong, any Kluang Railway Kopitiam franchise is fulfilling, but it’s the best if you visit the original outlet. Located inside the Kluang KTM station, you have to wait for your turn to get that toasted bun and Kluang coffee.
I love the environment, and the food is delicious too! Although it’s just a simple toasted kaya and butter bun, the way they prepared is unique. Since it was a grill on charcoal, you can get that crunchy soft, melted kaya and butter in just one bite.

8. Pertubuhan Penganut Dewa Choo Ong Yah (Leng Toh Keng) 📸
Located near Kluang Mall, or to be exact in front of Nanyang Kopitiam, you will see a vibrant temple in the area. We spotted the temple when we went to the Kluang Rail Coffee franchise at Jalan Durian to buy some Kaya. It was a very welcoming experience, and the best part is the guard of the temple tells us a history of the temple, and it has been here since 1966!
