In fact these fine establishments can cater for whatever the taste or origins of the music you desire to sing.
If you have a liking for karaoke and you are staying in the heart of downtown Johor Bahru then look no further than the recognised (Malaysian) brand of the Neway Karaoke conveniently located on level 5 of Johor Bahru City Square Mall.

As befitting for a large city like Johor Bahru the entertainment industry provides 3 large cinema complexes such as the Golden Screen Cinema in Pelangi Leisure Mall that has 5 movie screening halls with total 2,361 seats.
The Cathay Cineplexes in downtown Johor Bahru City Square that offers 5 screens through an area of 24,000 square feet. Lastly, the Tanjung Golden Village Complex in Aeon Tabrau City that features the 20m wide megascreen (the largest screen in Malaysia).
Johor Go Cart
Situated 20km north of Johor Bahru is the Permas Go-Kart Club that boasts a 1.43km racing track (the longest karting track in Malaysia) where speeds of up to 160km/h are achievable (in the 125cc karts) on the long straights.
Beginners are welcome to try in 80cc class of kart and the track also hosts many corporate and international events.
Zoo Johor is located on Jalan Gertak Merah and although it has only been open to the public since 1962 it is actually one of the oldest zoo's in Malaysia dating back to 1928 when it was first opened by Sultan Ibrahim of the Johor royal family.
Admission is cheap at Johor Zoo with RM3 for adults and RM2 for children and it is open daily from 9.00am until 6.00pm.
The bird show is the best reason to visit and it is sure to keep the kids entertained, as it is not a large zoo you can easily see all the animals inside two hours and probably still have time for renting a peddle boat on the small lake inside the zoo.
