I am a Muarean. I was residing at Batu Pahat town years ago but came back about 5 years ago to be caretaker to my mum. I love Tanjung, my favourite haunt to relax, chill out or just be near the riverside, listening to the waves or just enjoying my solitude though I made some new acquaintances there. The cloud and river view are forever changing eg low tides, high tides, sunny days, gloomy sky etc. There are times you caught sight of monkeys, squirrels even otters at the habitat. There are various places to explore at tanjung area eg the jetty area, the waterfront, the food court, the walking /jogging/cycling track and the playgrounds. Favourite haunt for families at weekends too.

There are some historical buildings besides the river. At night, parts of it are nicely lighted. You also take a river cruise.

In the evening, we can see many people jogging and walking along the river. The place is neat and maintained the cleanliness by the local government.

It was lovely to stroll along the wide pavements in the evening. The park has some lovely trees n shrubs n was well kept. There were long benches for seating . It was fun watching a spontaneous performance of a young Malay boy in full outfit of a Chinese lion dance. People young and old looked relax and enjoying just being by the Muar River.

The Muar River is the river that flows through Maur in particular, is the northern bounds of the touristy district of Pekan Muar. The mouth of the river is also just to the west of the touristy part of Muar. The river itself is not all that attractive, but it still retains some of the old world charms as it’s historically a fishing town. The fishing boats are still docked here, just to the east of the Sultan Ismail Bridge and next to the bus terminal.

The nice thing about the river is the picturesque esplanade along which sits many of the attractive landmark buildings of the city such as Tanjung Emas park, Masjid Jamek Sultan Ibrahim, Istana Bandar Diraja Muar, Bangunan Sultan Abu Bakar and the aforementioned bridge.

I would have loved to do this riverwalk but the smell of sewage was so bad we didn't make it very far.

Muar was a fishing village and is still fishing coastal town. The fresh catches from the Straits of Melaka and the surrounding regions landed in Muar throughout the day especially in the morning.
Muar has another name, it is called Bandar Maharani, Bandar diRaja, a town fit for the King or Sultan of Johor. It is as old as the Straits Settlements of Melaka, Penang and Singapore. In fact the then sultan fled from Melaka and landed in Muar.
Thanks to the Muar river which connect Melaka and Muar via Straits of Melaka.
Unfortunately, this sea route has not been exploited by any big investor to open up the tourism industry in Muar.
Muar can be connected by sea route to Batam in Indonesia and perhaps to Pulau Besar and even Melaka again. There was an attempt by the previous government to deepen the estuary to cater for the tourist boats and private vessel to dock at the estuary which open out to the Straits of Melaka. It is vast opportunities to bring in tourists from cruise ships to come to this historical town , which still retained many of its narrow streets and historical buildings.
Muar river offer a great deal of opportunities awaiting to be explored.

Travelled to Muar to visit a family members Chinese New Year lunch. Given that we had arrived early decided to talk a walk along the river, something we had never done before when visiting Muar. Spent a pleasent hour or two walking along the river from the fish market to the where the river meets the Melaka Straits. Note that for much of the distance there is no river walkway, but you can stroll along the path by the road which is adjacent to the river. Upstream on the south bank of the river is a large and fascinating local fish market which is well worth spending 10-15 mins in, the variety of the fish on sale is staggering, and the prices very cheap.

Depending on which part you are in, this can be quite pleasant for a stroll. For a small town also, the night view is also nice. One of the best viewpoints is from the Golden Lake hotel.
