For some alternatives, look at the Legoland Malaysia Hotel and the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport. They are located 25 kilometres and 35 kilometres respectively from the main center. Wotif also suggests the Capri by Fraser, Changi City Singapore and the Village Hotel Changi. The first is 35 kilometres away from town, while the other is 30 kilometres away.
The close by cities of Johor Bahru and Pasir Gudang are certainly worth exploring. Johor Bahru is 16 kilometres to the southwest of Ulu Tiram, while Pasir Gudang is 17 kilometres to the southeast.
