My friend drove me here from JB so I had a bit of an insider edge, great for a swim in the cool relaxing water after a big drinking session the night before. Really cool refreshing water and its even better when it rains. Might be harder to get to if you weren't driving Saturday was good but supposedly Sunday... More

Got lower & higher waterfalls. Lower is fun with family or friends. But difficult with kids, as rocks and stones were naturally paved to reach water fall. Higher waterfall is quiet and calm, got safe steps with rails. Driving thro access road is enjoyable too. Weather is cool. No good foods are available. Can bring own food to enjoy eating... More

Kota Tinggi is just 45 minutes away from JB Central and it's worth a visit. Waterfall is not too great but a nice place to spend at least 2 hours. Pros: Beautiful drive through the forest area, not so crowded & cold water above all Cons: No other activity except the main attraction

Disappointing given we've driven 1.5 hits from Johor Bahru chasing a tourist attraction on a tourism map. We had to pay a fee to enter the "resort" as they call it. We did not bring a change of clothes, but my spouse said he would take my son down into the water. We went on a public holiday, which we... More

Separate into 2 areas. Lower comes with water fun, stalls, rest room. Higher level more towards nature. Only problem is the environment destroyers smoking, eating at the higher level leaving rubbish everywhere. They should stops anyone bring food to higher level.

There are 3 waterfalls in Kota Tinggi. When you drive into Kota Tinggi town and cross the bridge over the Johore River, road signage will point you to Air Terjun, commonly known as Kota Tinggi Waterfall. This is the waterfall usually accessed by the public. It is developed, has a small resort with chalets and public shower/toilet facilities, car park,... More

I have been there for many times. Actually this place is very good for sight-seeing, camping, mountain climbing, etc. There are also car park, eating places and prayer room provided there.

Well worth a visit, only an hours drive from downtown Johor. Make sure you take a towel with you. There are great swimming opportunities. Wonderful scenery, mind the monkeys sitting in the road as you approach.

Went to Kota Tinggi Waterfall during my last visit to Desaru. Easy enough to find ... just follow the road sign "Air Terjun" when in Kota Tinggi, meaning waterfall in English. There is an entrance fee for both adult and children, but must amid that I forgot the amount (I think was MYR12 and MYR8). The waterfall has some slides... More
