The Sleepy Town

The town of Gemas remains untouched by modernisation and development... It comprises pre-war buildings, some of which dating back to the 1930s... The town centres around an odd-shaped roundabout with rows of old buildings forming a detached U-perimeter surrounding a cluster of slightly new buildings... A narrow, tricky road goes around these buildings... This three-arm traffic island leads to Tampin, Johor’s Gemas Baharu and to the railway station...

The rebuilt hotel (after a frak fire gutted it) is probably the newest building in the congested town centre... There are two hotels in the town centre, both less than 10 minutes walk from the train station or the bus terminal... However, further away from the town, you will find slightly better choices of lodging... There is the Gemas Rest House which is very popular and usually full... Gemas also have a golf course... The Gemas Golf Resort is now run by Koreans for Koreans who stay at the resort and play golf...
