I drove down to Puteri Harbour yesterday afternoon. Puteri Harbour is a three and a half hour drive from KL.
Puteri Harbour is a marina development that spans 2.8km2 (687 acres) in the new regional city of Iskandar Puteri. The harbour opens into the Johor Strait, which separates peninsular Malaysia from the island of Singapore.
The Blue Moon stands out amongst the more modern yachts in the marina.
Puteri Harbour is a fairly new deveopment, with commercial, residential and leisure projects phased over the next decade and more. Some of the properties are completed, and many more are in various stages of construction. Many of the excellent roads in the area are closed to traffic until construction is completed. Which makes them perfect for cycling.
This was my first visit to Puteri Harbour. So I rode a “stream of consciousness” route from the Hotel Jen this morning, heading down roads that looked interesting.
Apartment blocks like this one are everywhere.
For those with the wherewithall, homes with private piers are also available.
Apart from access to the sea, there are other attractions in the area.
The Iskandar Botanic Park was a photogenic spot for this couple’s wedding album.
Tho Johor State government has moved its offices to Kota Iskandar, which is the administrative precinct within Iskandar Puteri.
This is the front of the Johor State government building.,
This is the state mosque, seen from a distance.
There are lots of interesting thngs to see at closer range.
The weather was excellent this morning. It stayed overcast until noon, and the average temperature was 27°C. It was humid – nothing new there. So I did need to replace some fluid when I got back to Puteri Harbour.
