Now, you are ready to start the trip!

Stop 1: Kluang Railway Coffee

It seems that the station is aware that we Johoreans are food passionistas, so much that since 1938 this local dearest has been right outside of Kluang railway station just to satiate our void stomach from the weary travels. Not much change has been made to the shop, which added sentimentality and their prided testimony of how this shop has flourished for 3 generations and more to come!

No matter what, wake up early and die die must swing in for their breakfast! Because this 79 old cafeteria makes its mark by: their aromatic kopi from the Kluang Cap Television Brand (Johor Sultan is a fan!); crispy round or flat margarine and kaya toast; traditional coconut milk Nasi Lemak; yummy Mee Siam and their half-boiled eggs drizzle with soya sauce. All these to set your day off journeying into the heart of Kluang~

Stop 2: UK Agro Farm

When your tummy is filled with fuel for the rest of the day, head on to the largest goat farm in Malaysia just half an hour drive away from Kluang Station! Travel en route throughout the farm via a cute miniscule school bus or rent a horse carte! Then surround yourself and the kids a unique experience of feeding and petting of the livestocks there such as goats, chickens, rabbits, deers and even ostriches!

From savouring fresh organic harvest, catching fishes, testing your archery skills, making friends with the furries~ to learning new amazing knowledge (like I didn’t know that the body scrub from the Bodyshop is derived from the Loofah plant on the top right!) Visitors usually feel a profound humility in appreciating the origins of our food on our table; a lesson worth acquiring to everyone who is keen to drop by!

Stop 4: Kluang Coffee / Cap Televisyen Brand Coffee

Coffee and television? Never crossed my mind how they are linked together for 51 years. With a little background check, their humble origin unfolds the founder’s wish of his coffee to be as luxurious as a TV (an expensive gadget erstwhile) and to bring more cohesiveness in a family none other than a cup of coffee and the TV set.

And when Johor Sultan is a devotee, we know this coffee packs a punch even for caffeine addicts. So if you want to master the art of coffee making, come by and witness the hard work poured in for these many years right in the belly of their factory! You get to see their coffee roasting, grinding to powdery form, to types of coffee and even friendly staffs providing local snacks with a cup of their prided coffee! If this isn’t bliss that what is?
