Attractions to Visit in Danga Bay

March 15, 2016

Danga Bay (“Teluk Danga”) is just a short 7 km trip from Johor Bahru's bustling city center in the central business district. It's located in south central Iskandar, stretching some 25 km along the Straits of Johor.

Danga Bay boasts some of the best scenery, fun attractions and best tasting restaurants and cafes in all of Johor.

Here's a list of the area's 4 main attractions:

Danga City Mall

Food, cafes, fashion, electronics, décor, floral, beauty and skincare services – Danga City Mall even has a Home Depot inside. Great deals can be found here, especially if you're traveling from expensive parts of Europe or the Americas.

Danga City Mall

Beyond the shops inside, Danga City Mall is most famous for all the festivals it holds. From national and international arts exhibitions, to things that people of all ages will enjoy such as remote control car racing, music shows, martial arts competitions, and toy shows.

Danga World Mini Theme Park

This is one of the biggest attraction draws for parents traveling with children and perhaps the biggest reason people visit the Bay during daylight hours, as it's a budget-friendly alternative to the pricier Legoland Theme Park in Nusajaya.

There's no high speed roller coasters hurling you a hundred feet in the air, at a hundred miles an hour. That's not what Danga World is all about. Here you'll find rides and attractions suited to children under 12, which are also great for couples in love to enjoy time together and soak up the scenery.

There's a pirate ship ride, modest roller coaster, swirling tea cups, a merry-go-round, small Ferris wheel, bumper cars, a flying elephant ride and a few others to take in for an afternoon of fun. You may have heard rumors about the petting zoo that used to be open here, but it's now been closed.

Tram Ride

There are several trams located throughout the Bay area. Trams are interesting-looking trucks outfitted to resemble trains. Hop in back and take a tour of the bay and all the sights it has to offer.

While a tram ride is good fun anytime of day, nighttime is considered the best, as Danga and her lights are a real feast for the eyes at night. Trams are a great way to spend a romantic hour or two together before settling in for the night.


Danga Bay is famous for its seafood restaurants. But if that's not what you desire, you'll have no trouble finding just what you're looking for in the area.

Danga Bay is a development area in Johor that will continue to grow as the years go on. The next time you visit Johor Bahru, Malaysia, be sure to schedule your time for a visit to Danga Bay – you won't regret it!
