Natural Feature
“Gunung Pulai is a 654 meter high hill near the city of Johor Bahru. Although “Gunung” means “mountain or Mt.” in Malay, it is technically not high enough to be regarded as a mountain. It might be regarded as a mountain because it is the only major high point in an otherwise flat region; however, here I will call it a hill. But what makes this place special is because it still contains substantial primary rainforest cover since it is a water catchment area for nearby Johor Bahru and Singapore, and it also has a spectacular waterfall, although it is under serious threats as well – which I will get to in a moment. Impressive virgin rainforest Most people have absolutely no idea that at least part of the forest that clothes Gunung Pulai is one of the most magnificent unlogged dipterocarp rainforest anywhere in Peninsular Malaysia. There is a very high proportion of large timber trees in this essentially untouched rainforest, most of them a meter or more in diameter for bole/trunk size, and almost all of them have very well formed, and dense crowns. A majestic sight to behold today, since these forests are all but gone.”

Point of Interest
“A sugary sweet way to discover the lesser known highlights of Pontian. Nictar Bee Farm, tucked away in the middle of Malaysia’s oldest pineapple estate, showcases locally harvested pineapples and honey. At this farm, visitors are treated to a beekeeping demonstration, learning how the bees are handled to ensure they produce top grade honey. The bees here produce monofloral honey with nectar from the pineapple trees, resulting in the honey tasting similar to the fruit. You are also taken on a tour of the plantation, which grows a crossbreed of pineapples from Johor and Sarawak, with the end product being succulently tasty. At the end of the tour visitors will have the opportunity to purchase honey and pineapple products for themselves or as gifts.”
