A long stretch of road in Kukup, Johor Baru lined with blooming tecoma trees has become a draw.

Motorists driving along Jalan Pontian-Kukup have been seen stopping by the roadside to admire and take photos of these attractive flowering trees.

Chinese nationals Star Wang, 25, and Nicholas An, 28, said they were on their way back to Johor Baru after visiting some farms in Pontian with six other friends when they noticed the beautiful trees along the road.

“We spent about 15 minutes taking photos at two spots where pink and white petals had fallen on the ground, creating a vibrant image, ” said Wang.

An, who is a construction worker in Johor Baru for the past seven years, said it was his first time in the area and he was impressed by the beautiful trees.

Meanwhile, childcare centre owner Shirley Lew, 37, said the tecoma trees were especially an attraction for locals who were unable to travel due to the pandemic.

“My husband and I were driving around for fun as we both missed travelling.

“I am glad we ended up in Kukup and could not resist making a stop to admire the pretty flowers here, ” she said.

Administrative executive Syahira Abdul Rahim, 39, said the tecoma trees should be a reminder to all to appreciate nature and keep the surroundings clean.

“I stopped at a few spots to take photos of the trees and noticed empty plastic bottles, food packaging and disposable face masks thrown on the ground, ” she added. — By YEE XIANG YUN
