Like in any towns within Malaysia, modernisation beckons. So too for Batu Pahat. This town has a history that belts back to the 15th century. This town stands second only to Johor Bahru in terms of growth and is known for their textiles.

But like any good Asian, the most natural thing that we always try to do is to look for good food and a great place to relax. If that is what you're looking for, then Batu Pahat is such a place for you.

The town now see three big shopping malls, catering to the shopping needs of the township of about 500,000 residents. This is commercialisation at its best, and is seen in every town, not that we can do anything but to embrace these changes. But Batu Pahat still holds its old charm, possibly due to the fact that the town is not situated close to the North-South Highway. From the highway, one has to exit at Ayer Hitam and then drive west for about 40 kilometres before reaching Batu Pahat.

But that should never deter you from visiting Batu Pahat. So go forth and explore!
