4 Wheel Drive Camp Retreat by Forest City: A Success for Ecotourism

Country Garden Forest City, a unique development concept in Johor, launched its inaugural 4 Wheel Drive Camp Retreat in collaboration with Nature Campers 4×4 club on 11 March 2023, with the aim of promoting ecotourism locations and attractions in Johor Bahru. This program saw a flag-off ceremony for 150 vehicles, which Johor Tourism Director Suhairi Hashim completed at the Tunku Mahkota Ismail Youth Centre (TMIYC) in Johor Bahru. The convoy, led by Country Garden Malaysia-Singapore Regional President, Chen Binhong, camped for two days and one night in Forest City. Participants could not only enjoy camping in the picturesque surroundings but also an automotive exhibition, photography exhibition, and children’s activities.

This program was an initiative by Country Garden Forest City to catalyze local economic growth through the tourism industry, which has become a popular choice due to the pandemic. Country Garden Forest City aimed to attract visitors to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, engage in outdoor environmental activities, and explore the breadth of developing facilities it offers.

According to the Regional Vice President of Country Garden Forest City, Ir. Hj. Syarul Izam, “Country Garden Forest City is one of the attractions in Johor due to its complete set of facilities, including a chain of hotels that offer stunning views, international standard golf courses, interesting photography locations, public swimming pools, and a water park. This outdoor activity that can integrate with nature without incurring high costs is a great option for families and friends to gather together. It is also the new fashion trend of our time.”

The program received support from public agencies, including Majlis Bandaraya Johor Bahru (MBJB), Majlis Bandaraya Iskandar Puteri (MBIP), and Tourism Johor, demonstrating a collective effort to bolster Johor’s tourism industry. In addition, Enya Mariene photography company and six other companies from various business backgrounds contributed sponsorship to ensure the program’s success.
