JOHOR Baru has never had it so good, as far as the hotels are concerned.
Room occupancy is at an all-time high, not only in the state capital, but also in south Johor, which is commonly known as Iskandar Malaysia.
A check with several hotels in the city revealed that the rooms were fully booked until the end of the year.
This is a good sign for Visit Malaysia Year 2014.
The opening of Johor Premium Outlet in Kulaijaya, Legoland Malaysia and Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park, both in Nusajaya, have drawn Singaporeans as well as visitors from out of town.
