Masai is a town located in east Johor Bahru District, Malaysia, and is the oldest part of Johor Bahru. It is located 25 kilometres from the Johor Bahru city centre. Masai is located on route J10 which leads to Kong Kong, a fishing village along Johor River. The main access roads to Masai are Jalan Masai Lama(J10) and Pasir Gudang Highway(Federal Route 17).

Many pre-war buildings are still well preserved. Masai, like many of the towns in the Johor Bahru district, catered to the rural population of farmers and rubber plantation workers throughout the early and mid 20th century.

Due to its proximity to Pasir Gudang, its shops cater to retail shoppers from Pasir Gudang as well as from the rapidly growing population of nearby housing estates such as Kota Masai, Bandar Seri Alam, Taman Rinting, Taman Megah Ria, Nusa Damai, Taman Scientex, Kota Puteri and Taman Bukit Dahlia.

Recent history

Masai has gone through vigorous development which has transformed the town into one of the most populous towns in Johor. The Masai Chinese Primary School now has more than 5000 pupils. Shops include Todays, Yos Saver Store, Kip-Mart and Tesco.

Bandar Sri Alam is the business centre for Masai, with MayBank, Public Bank, CIMB and Bank Rakyat and hotels.

The Masai Main Street, Jalan Masai Lama, is the main road connecting Johor Bahru to towns at the east side of Masai such as Kota Masai, Kong Kong and Pasir Gudang.
