Where Are We?
Skudai, Johor
The Perfect Location

‘Skudai is a rapidly expanding suburb of Johor Bahru, the largest city and the capital of the state of Johor in southern Malaysia. It is part of the new growth corridor of southwest Johor, which includes the Senai International Airport, Tanjung Pelepas Port and the new administrative capital of Johor, Bandar Nusajaya. It has a population between 160,000 and 210,000. The headquarters for the Johor Bahru Central Municipal Council and home to the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia campus…’

Many people in Skudai are from other states in Malaysia, attracted by better employment opportunities and double the exchange rate in neighbor Singapore and this is the norm in many parts of southern Johor. People from other states in Malaysia would rent houses in Skudai and other parts of Johor, with many preferring to settle down in Johor after living for many years here. This has created a housing boom in this area as many local young people are also starting families of their own. There are those who receive higher income because these residents can earn more from working in Singapore and this has resulted in higher disposable income too, thus spurring the entertainment and automotive sectors in Johor.
