As for school, SRJKC Kangkar Pulai is the only school nearby, and the other schools are at least 20 minutes’ drive away.

Taman Pulai Emas rests on the intersection of two highways; namely the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link Expressway, and the Skudai-Pontian Highway although far away from the city. The place then offers easy access to Singapore, taking 35 minutes to reach the CIQ in Tuas. It could potentially be time-saving compared to taking the causeway though still far away.
