Bukit Kangkar, JohorBukit Kangkar, Johor (11 September, 2016)


Bukit Kangkar (GPS: 2.17314, 102.55445) is a pretty little town in Tangkar District, Johor. It is contiguous to the village of Parit Pelampong. The pekan or town centre of Bukit Kangkar has old, wooden Chinese shophouses lining the main road. A unique characteristic of the town is that most of the buildings are painted light blue. I am not sure whether it s a directive from the local district council, or whether a paint company has sponsored blue paint.

The main landmark of the town is its mosque, Masjid Jamek Al-Amin. The town is on Route 23 also called Jalan Muar-Tangkak. You will pass it on your way from the North-South Expressway towards Muar.

How to go to Bukit Kangkar

Exit the North South Expressway Southern Route (E2) at the Tangkak Interchange (Exit 235), then drive heading south in the direction of Muar. Bukit Kangkar is roughly 13km from the exit.
