Mersing (GPS: 2.42862, 103.83178) is a town in Johor on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is the biggest town in Johor on the east coast. The town has a population of 21,670. Mersing is also the district capital of Mersing District, which is 2,838 square kilometers in size. The town of Mersing is located at the mouth of the Mersing River facing the South China Sea.

While the town of Mersing is not particularly rich in attractions, most people come here because it is the natural springboard for trips to the offshore islands such as Pulau Tioman (which belongs to Pahang), Pulau Aur, Pulau Seribuat, Pulau Pemanggil, Pulau Dayang, Pulau Besar, and Pulau Sibu, to name some.
