Last week, the Sultan of Johor celebrated his birthday in Muar and upgraded the town to Bandar Diraja. Whatever that means. Muar, of all the cities in Johor! Weeks before his arrival, the roundabout was reconstructed, the roads repaired, new bonsai planted etc.
The beautiful roundabout with King’s crown and elephant tusks.
There was a parade on one of the nights. Sis and I went out and kepoh. After all, when else would you get the opportunity to stand in the middle of the road at central town and camho? XD
Due to the celebration, feasts and parade, the hotels in Muar were fully booked! While searching for some budget hotels for the guests from other cities, I found a few budget hotels in Johor under iBilik’s short-term rentals category.
The budget hotels in Johor could go as low as RM40 for 2 pax!!! Unbelievably cheap! LOL.
On the other hand, iBilik also provides a thorough description of the budget hotels such as the facilities and services, the landmarks nearby, booking information, check-in and check-out time. Most of the rooms come with free wifi!
You may check the availability of the room and make your booking on the website itself.
Meanwhile, if you have a room for rent, you may post up your rental notice on the website. Everything is FOC!
So don’t forget to visit iBilik if you’re looking for Johor budget hotels!
A few more photos taken on Sultan Johor’s birthday.
Yellow symbolizes the royalties! Teehee.
Last not but least, my Marc Jacob Katie Bracelet from bestie Katie!!! It’s my belated 21st birthday present. Now Katie, Jess and I got the same bracelet. Bff forever! XD
