    i m from Batu Pahat... You can stay in Caterina Hotel (4 star hotel).. which should not be too expensive... other than that... like Landmark Hotel, seaview hotel and many other small hotel... Nasi Briyani Power at Taman Soga is the famous... It has been recommended in one programme in our local TV channel..very near to Batu Pahat Government Hospital... Go a place called "seaside" (in hokkien) at nite... got all sorts of Batu Pahat cheap and good food there... Do email me if want to know more about my hometown..

    Hi Just returned from a trip to Malaysia. In answer to your question, yes the bus ride fromCity Lounge (kota Raya)to Senai Airport was nice . I took the budget airline, AirAsia - had to endure a 1 hour flight delay.Otherwise, everthing was fine. However, coming back via Johor Bahru is a NIGHTMARE! The customs and immigration is disorganised and pathetic. There was a human jam within the immigration office arena. Hundreds of people almost stampeding to the counters. My advice to you is - avoid JB during weekends, especially super peak periods.

    you can go to Casurina Hotel which is a 4-star hotel in Batu Pahat. But price might be slightly higher

    other cheap and clean hotel should be Pelican Hotel, Landmark Hotel. Pelican Hotel is the 1st hotel you will see once you cross the Batu Pahat Bridge from KL direction.

    Try local foods at "seaside" (local people pronounce it in Hokkien) The most famous hawker center in Batu Pahat..you could get cheap and good food there..
