Next up is going on go kart rides around one of the largest go-kart circuit in Malaysia, the Plentong Go Kart Circuit. You guys know the fun of going on go kart rides right? It’s the exhilaration that comes when we’re tucked in a racing car and there’s absolutely no worry such as that while we’re on the roads. You can just drive however you want (but safety is always a priority) so bring your family and friends along to enjoy driving at a high speed with lesser road restrictions! Also, maybe this is a good way to understand the adrenaline rush that comes in every F1 racer.

If you are more to a water-adventure lover, then this next outdoor activity in Johor is specifically made for you. It’s none other than water paddling, but with a unique twist. Instead of sitting and paddling your way through, this activity says it all by its name: Stand Up Paddle. Yes, you will actually have to stand and paddle your way through. However, at Coastal Paddle, they have tours for this activity so fret not, you will be guided all the way through. Typically, this is an undeniable exhausting and energy draining activity since you will paddle for 4 hours across the different stops so make sure you eat up before embarking on this adventure.

The very final activity in our list of outdoor activities in Johor is this one of a kind adventure. How many of you guys have actually seen fireflies? We certainly have(in the movies) but IRL? That would be a wonder, don’t you think? So, here at Firefly Valley Leisure Park, you can choose to either witness fireflies on foot or take the boat, cruise the river and enjoy firefly watching. If you’re not sure which is better, we can’t tell either since this is relatively subjective upon your personal opinion. But one thing for sure, it’s likely a very romantic activity.
