We are also been entertained by the culturally rich State with their lively joget and zapin as well as a medley of Johor folk songs. These dances will be performed daily during lunch time and dinner time. Meanwhile, as eye candy the hotel lobby will be transformed into a mini Johor with displays of arts and crafts.
