Johor Zoo is located at Jalan Gertak Merah and is reputed to be the first zoo in Asia. It was established in the year 1928 by the late Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar and was opened to the public in the year 1962.
It is a very much smaller scale zoo with an area of about 12.5 hectares compared to Singapore Zoo or Zoo Negara in Kuala Lumpur.
However, this zoo is a popular place where families with young children go during the weekends and public holidays for a time of recreation or simply getting together for a time of relaxation.
There are good facilities such as benches that you can use as picnic spots with your family members.
One of the interesting museums to visit in Johor Bahru is the Johor Chinese Heritage Museum where you can learn about how the Chinese migrants came to Johor which dates back to the Ming and Qing Dynasties as early as the 1414th century.
