And now the final piece on the recent running travelling to the south series. Continued from the article My old alma mater, Sekolah Menengah Sains Johor (Johor Science Secondary School)
At one eastern end of the district of Batu Pahat bordering the Kluang district lies the small town of Ayer Hitam, sometimes spelt as Air Hitam...
Geographically it can't beat the town of Kluang's position at the centre of the state of Johor. But in terms of road network you could say it is the state's 'actual centre' lying on the main national trunk road between Muar to the north and Johor Bahru to the south.
Thus while the town itself might be small, it is bustling with much activities.
It's position at the 'centre' of Johor means people tend to stop here for a brief rest and that led to some businesses mushrooming taking advantage of the situation...
For example pottery is a main trade in Ayer Hitam. So also fresh vegetables and some household goods. Enough.
