The district of Mersing in Johor serves as the main gateway for ecotourism, coastal and island tourism to both foreign and domestic tourists. This niche tourism destination has become a vital engine of growth.

Employing the ‘Rainforest to Reef’ (R2R) concept, the development of Mersing’s tourism industry is aligned with its ‘Naturally Splendid’ Regional Branding that leverages on the district’s rich agriculture and marine-based resources.

Several catalytic tourism projects will further boost economic development in Mersing, including the Mersing Harbour Centre development, Medan Ikan Bakar Endau, Tanjung Penyabong Waterfront, upgrading of roads leading to Taman Negara Johor Endau-Rompin (TNJER), and the construction and upgrade of public facilities such as jetties and walkways at the Mersing islands.
