There are frequent buses (Maju 227, Causeway Link 6B, Transit Link 41) between downtown Johor Bahru's Jalan Wong Ah Fook (the bus stop is opposite City Square) and Kota Tinggi's bus terminal at Jalan Niaga Utama. The Maju 227 bus actually originates and terminates at Johore Bahru's Larkin Bus Terminal. Causeway Link no. 66 bus plies between Larkin Bus Terminal and Kota Tinggi. The average frequency of the Maju 227 bus is every 15 minutes and its one-way fare between City Square and Kota Tinggi is 4.80 RM. The journey takes about 1 hour or more, depending on the bus number and traffic conditions. Generally, the bus with a big letter "Kota Tinggi" and without other smaller stops written on the front of the bus tends to travel faster. There are direct, non-stop Mara Liner coach services four times a day from Johor Bahru's Larkin Bus Terminal to Kota Tinggi at 10:30am, 1pm, 5pm and 8pm, enroute to Bandar Penawar. The one-way fare is 4.00 RM.

Kota Tinggi Museum is in the city centre at Jalan Niaga opposite the bus terminal. The Museum traces the history of the Johor Sultanate and exhibits paintings, historical dioramas, weaponry and much more.

"Kampung Makam" (Tomb Village) is a historic complex located just 1.5km northeast of the bus terminal and is the other tourist attraction of Kota Tinggi. Its name was probably derived from the presence of several Malay royal tombs of historic significance. The most prominent of these tombs is that belonging to Sultan Mahmud, the 10th ruler of the Johor Sultanate. In the same complex exists fort-like stone walls resembling the remnants of a building or palace. The walls are of stone and corals while the mortar is made of a mixture of pounded cockle shells and other materials.

Do[edit][add listing]

A cruise from Kota Tinggi Jetty to see the fireflies amongst the mangroves is a good idea. Departs at 7:30pm and more if demanded. The cost is RM20 per person and lasted about 45 minutes. Individual travellers will join the large tour groups who had their dinner nearby before the firefly tour.

Most people head for the nearby waterfalls. If you do not drive you will need to hire a taxi from the bus terminal. The current fare is RM20 to the falls. Negotiate for the return fare at the same time. It is about RM25. Tell the driver when to pick you up. May need to spend between 1 to 2 hours there.
