A Day Trip To Muar Part 3: Muar Town

Muar is the second largest town in the state of Johor. Access to the town is via a 365 meter-long bridge which runs across the Muar River. 
Prior to the construction of this bridge (Sultan Ismail Bridge), the only access to Muar Town was via ferry services.
A cute looking jetty at Jalan Maharani.
Jalan Maharani, the street that runs parallel to Muar River.
It is interesting to note that all shops along a particular street are painted in uniform colour. This is Jalan Maharani, a blue street.
Jalan Haji Abu is a yellow street.
A junction where a red street meets a yellow street.
The peach color street.
This shop may probably be gazetted a heritage building one day.
The century old Customs Building.
The lion dance statue at Jalan Bentayan.
A grocery shop owner sunning salted fish outside his shop.
Muar Clock Tower
The Sultan Abu Bakar Building along Jalan Petri was built in 1921.
Masjid Jamek Sultan Ibrahim which was built in the 1920s  and featuring a mix of Western and Middle Eastern architecture is also located at Jalan Petri.
Jalan Haji Abu and a small stretch of Jalan Ali are the food streets of Muar. Also known as Tham Chiak Kue by the locals, this is where the street vendors congregate to sell local Muar cuisines.
This oyster omelette vendor certainly didn't let us down.
At only RM 8 per packet, there was a generous serving of oysters and they're big ones too.
This wan tan noodles (sold by one of the vendors in a corner coffee shop) is authentic in taste. I'll definitely come back for it if I come to Muar again. You won't miss this stall as it is the most popular wan tan mee stall at Jln Haji Abu with a non-stop flow of customers.
This is not Muar town but Sungei Mati town which we passed through on our way to Muar. I felt compelled to include this photograph as I simply love the vibrant colours of the shops.
