Named after an influx of turtles took refuge in the town after a particularly heavy flood, the Town of Kulai was once known as Gu Lai circa 1920’s, for the Chinese words that mean ‘the turtles are coming’.It is also the name of the district in which Kulai Town serves as the capital. Kulai is also within Iskandar Malaysia economic zone, so it’s softly spoken Johor Bahru.

Kulai is a heaven for those who wants to experience nature at its recreational areas like Gunung Pulai and Hutan Bukit Putra and it boasts both an aquarium and a zoo. Kulai also houses the Johor Premium Outlets, which is the first luxury premium brand outlet in Southeast Asia.
