Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru is the state capital of the state of Johor and the second largest metropolitan area in Malaysia. Most tourists don't stop here and just pass through the city on their way to or out of Singapore. JB is a major local transportation hub however. Since it is just across the causeway from Singapore, some travellers use it as a hub to visit Singapore from here (lower accommodation prices) or to board the train, bus or airplane.

Singapore

Singapore is an island nation located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. At 704.0 sqkm (272 square miles), it is one of the few city-states in the world and the smallest country in Southeast Asia.

How to get to the Clan Jetties
The Clan Jetties are located just east of the heritage zone of Georgetown and immediately south of the ferry terminal so you can easily walk or cycle here.

Clans
The water villages have been around since the late 19th century with 6 clan still remaining:
Seh Lim Keo (Lim Jetty)
Seh Chew Keo (Chew Jetty)
Seh Tan Keo (Tan Jetty)
Seh Lee Keo (Lee Jetty)
Chap Seh Keo (Mixed Clan Jetty)

The Chew jetty, the second jetty coming from the ferry terminal, is the most visited and tourist-friendly among them with the longest walkway.
