Most trips entail a complete list of activities during the day, like hiking or sightseeing. Then, what about for the nights?
Don’t get us wrong; sunlight helps us see most parts of the Earth’s beauty. But, that does not mean there is nothing left to do or see during the night.
Other than loitering in shopping malls and watching movies, what are the alternatives? For this purpose, we have sourced 3 memorable night activities in Johor you should check out:
- Pak Game @ Loud Speaker (Taman Sutera Utama Branch)
- Kota Tinggi Firefly Park
- Caribbean Juice Bar in Puteri Harbour
The night is still young. It always will be. So forget about the reunion with your bed. Instead, start heading to these locations with your travel companions for memorable night activities in Johor!
Pak Game @ Loud Speaker (Taman Sutera Utama Branch)

Loud Speaker is a famous karaoke brand favored by Malaysians since 2009. No matter the occasion – birthday, holiday, after-school loiter, after-office hour, date night, post-breakup, reunion, and countless more – karaoke will always stay on the to-do list.
This Loud Speaker branch in Taman Sutera Utama, Skudai, is quite the oddball. Besides being the first branch ever in Malaysia, it also has Pak Game – the first of its karaoke & gaming services for everyone!
Pak Game reopened in November 2021 after Malaysia’s Movement Control Order (MCO). Pak Game is just 5-minute walking distance from Euro Fun Park, so it is a great place to sing your heart out and duel with your friends and family after some fun amusement rides.
You can pick between Nintendo Switch or PS4 consoles. Most of the games here target a group of 3 or more individuals, like Overcooked, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Crash Team Racing Nitro, and more.
There is a shared space for everyone and private rooms if you prefer to have all the games for your group. Walk-in and reservations are both acceptable, but we highly encourage booking in advance as usual. Think about it – wouldn’t it be awesome if you could have your own private gaming space? Just food for thought.
Pak Game uses a Mario theme for its interior, and you would feel as if you have just entered Mario’s World. Besides gaming, customers can take plenty of pictures with their interior designs, like the transportation tubes in Mario’s World.
Before you make an appointment, head over to their website and social media to read more about their ongoing promotions and game lists. It wouldn’t hurt to give them a call and get your doubts cleared before making a reservation for a fantastic Johor Bahru night activity.

Bored of the night wanders in cities? How about a Johor night activity to explore wildlife fireflies in Kota Tinggi? Kota Tinggi Firefly Park provides firefly tours for visitors to get a close-up of the thousands of little lightning bugs along the riverbanks.
Kota Tinggi Firefly Park is about 5 minutes drive from the Kota Tinggi Museum and about a 45-minute drive from the heart of Johor Bahru. It’s a famous Johor night attraction, so you need to make a reservation first through WhatsApp and make your payment on the spot after your arrival.
The price of an adult ticket is RM 20. If you bring children aged 2 to 12, each child ticket costs RM 12. The ticket price includes renting a life jacket that you must put on before the commencement of the tour. The life jackets are regularly dry cleaned, note-worthy effort on prioritizing safety and hygiene!
There are 3 trips each night, and each trip lasts about 45 minutes. Fireflies are the most active during twilight with their conspicuous lights for mating purposes. To get the best out of it, we recommend taking the last of the 3 tours. The closer it is to twilight, the more active they will be.
Fireflies are fragile creatures susceptible to light. So remember, turn down your phone’s screen light and especially your camera flashlight. We understand your urge to take a handful of pictures, but do be considerate not to disrupt the peace of wildlife.
There are moments when the tour boat will get closer to the riverbanks. As a result, you will be physically closer to the fireflies, but should you catch or grab ahold of them under no circumstances.
Phone photography may not do their wondrous light show justice. Still, the more humid the weather of the day is, the more active fireflies will be, and the whole riverbanks will light up like Christmas lights!
Johor Kota Tinggi river is a rare breeding ground for fireflies. It is undoubtedly a memorable, romantic bonding trip to enjoy with your loved ones, family, and friends.

Caribbean Juice Bar in Puteri Harbour

The first Caribbean that came to mind was the Pirates of the Caribbean series – plenty of mythical creatures and seasickness. But when you are at Caribbean Juice Bar, all you need to worry about is finding yourself the perfect table and enjoying the fantastic night view!
Welcoming customers since April 2022, Caribbean Juice Bar is a new hidden spot in Sandy Beach. Reaching this juice bar only takes about 2 minutes of walking from the famous neon-light and musical Puteri Harbour Fountain.
We would not recommend ordering caffeinated beverages here because, believe it or not, it is called a juice bar for a reason. This is a vegetarian- and vegan-friendly bar with eco-friendliness and zero waste ideology in its mission!
They serve different healthy and homemade juices, smoothies, bowls, etc. The smoothie bowls here are a must-order. You can take it as your meal of the day or share it with your companion.
All their juices are fresh and cold-pressed to ensure customers get the most nutrients out of their fruits. We give extra plus points for not adding artificial ingredients or additives to their food and beverages, too!
Vicious predators hunt at night. Unfortunately, so do mosquitoes around here. The owners have prepared repellants to counter these nasty suckers, but it would be wise to wear long pants and bring your repellants, too.
We recommend coming here around 6 pm when the sun is setting. Let the good vibes and romantic ambiance bring you to the Caribbean seaside as you enjoy a healthy munch with your friends or family.
