5 Exciting Ideas on your JB Weekend Getaway!

Long weekend is here! Are you headed up to Johor Bahru?

Here are 5 ideas for some family fun with your little Beans off the beaten path – think fireflies, go-kart, ATV, horse-riding and a Harry Potter styled bookstore!

① 𝔸𝕋𝕍 ℙ𝕒𝕣𝕜 𝕁𝕠𝕙𝕠𝕣

One of the longest ATV trails in JB, the Seelong Trail is a guided ATV adventure – but when we say guided, it means another ATV that led the way… but you still get to steer the big vehicle all on your own! Highlights include zooming through the plantation, splashing into a river, revving to climb steep hills, and sunset photo-taking on the hilltop. Just under an hour from Woodlands, perfect for a post-lunch activity from Taman Sentosa.

② 𝕏ℙ𝕒𝕣𝕜 𝕊𝕦𝕟𝕨𝕒𝕪 𝕀𝕤𝕜𝕒𝕟𝕕𝕒𝕣

32 acres of action-packed fun. There are many activities available – go-kart, mountain biking, motocross, rock climbing, archery, paintball and more! Our little Beans love to head here for go-karting and high obstacle course. Better still, this is sheltered so it’s wet weather proof!

③ 𝔸𝕞𝕚𝕘𝕠𝕤 ℍ𝕠𝕣𝕤𝕖 ℝ𝕚𝕕𝕚𝕟𝕘 @ ℙ𝕒𝕤𝕚𝕣 𝔾𝕦𝕕𝕒𝕟𝕘

We visited them for the jungle trail and it was an awesome experience taking the horses into the trail all by ourselves! Each of the adults rode with the two younger Beans (aged 4 and 6) while the older Bean (aged 8) rode her own pony. The jungle trail is recommended and best to do it late afternoon as the sun doesn’t hit you too hard (bonus – you catch the sunset in the backdrop too!)

④ 𝕂𝕠𝕥𝕒 𝕋𝕚𝕟𝕘𝕘𝕚 𝔽𝕚𝕣𝕖𝕗𝕝𝕪 ℙ𝕒𝕣𝕜

It took a while for our eyes to get adjusted to the darkness, but soon enough – the river glistened with the fireflies all around us, just like Christmas lightings. The guide was able to steer us close enough to have some of these fireflies landing on our palms. This is a slightly further detour away from Johor Bahru but it’s best if you do this when you want to catch a late dinner. Highly recommended is the 7.30pm cruise (best time to view the fireflies) and we can eat down the town right after!

⑤ 𝔹𝕠𝕠𝕜 𝕏𝕔𝕖𝕤𝕤

32,000-square feet of floor space and 1+ million books! This is one of the biggest bookstores you can find! One of the highlights is the floor-to-ceiling shelves that make for a good photo – a whole row of eight-metre high bookshelves in the middle of the store, hiding a hidden book sanctuary (aptly named Children’s Cave). This is situated right beside the X Park Sunway Iskandar so if there is a long queue at the go-karts, maybe a quick detour here to chill makes sense!
