If you don't have any issues with setting up base 20 kilometres away from the center, consider the suburb of Johor Bahru City Centre. It has 3 options available, including Erica Hotel and Swiss-Inn Johor Bahru.
For more options, try the Raffles Singapore and the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore. They are 40 kilometres and 40 kilometres respectively from the center. Wotif also suggests the Orchard Parksuites and the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. The first is 40 kilometres away from town, while the second is 40 kilometres away.
The nearby cities of Johor Bahru and Ulu Tiram are definitely worth going to. Johor Bahru is 12 kilometres to the east of Kangkar Pulai, while Ulu Tiram is 25 kilometres to the east. Accommodations in Johor Bahru are the Pariss Hotel and Tune Hotel - Danga Bay, Johor. Ulu Tiram options include the In@Hotel and Container Gardenstay @ Bangkok Village.
Before you leave Johor, ensure you experience a local game. Find Tan Sri Hassan Yunus Stadium to the east of Kangkar Pulai. Those wishing to hit the hay close to the action can select from the Bayu Marina Resort and the Thistle Johor Bahru.
To save money, consider Sydney accommodation apartments in the suburb of Camperdown, especially if you’re traveling with the whole family. It’s slightly outside the city centre, which makes it more affordable. But you can easily hop a bus from Camperdown straight to Sydney CBD, and bus fare is only a few dollars. Quality Suites Camperdown, near the University of Sydney, saves you even more cash when you cook meals in the kitchenette instead of eating out.
Hotels in Kangkar Pulai start at AU$42 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
