|Since Iskandar Malaysia is located in Johor, it is only fitting that visitors explore the state of Johor that is divided into eight districts: Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat, Kluang, Kota Tinggi, Mersing, Muar, Pontian and Segamat. The largest district is Johor Bahru, which is where the state capital and Iskandar Malaysia is located.|
| Theme Parks|
Iskandar Malaysia has a few theme parks in development at the moment that will provide endless fun and exciting rides. The establishment of the LEGOLAND Malaysia theme park in Iskandar Malaysia by 2013 will help transform the region's home state of Johor into an international tourist hotspot. LEGOLAND Malaysia is the first of three international theme parks planned for the state, under the umbrella of key catalytic projects that will be driven by IIB in its tourism master plan for Iskandar Malaysia. Another upcoming development is a wet-and-dry theme park in Danga Bay. It will also include three hotels (including a six-star hotel), a marina, an international convention and exhibition centre and office towers.
